Tasted from a bottle at a tasting in mid-2012, this was a fun find at an otherwise serious tasting. Pours clear golden with a thin white head that left a thin collar of lace. The nose is very strange with basil, tomato sauce, and doughy malt. It really smells like a pizza. The beer tastes almost exactly like a cheap frozen pizza. The body is light with fizzy carbonation and a long basil and tomato finish.

Bottle at Craig’s. Pours hazy amber, nose is in fact pizza - tomato, oregano, very herbal, taste is similar, more of the garlic, quite interesting.

Both better and worse than it has any right to be. Smells like a huge pile of oregano accidentally slipped into your glass or boring light lager. Tastes less spicy and just kinda bland/slightly odd. It’s a bad beer but not nearly as awful as I suspected.

THOUGHTS: Dear, God! It really smelled like Pizza. Or at least what my mustache smells like after eating pizza. Not as awful as I thought it could have been. It was sort of like watered-down, carbonated tomato sauce. I didn’t mind the smell or taste, but I don’t know if they work as a beer. TECHNICAL: Drank 5/12/2013. Bottle. Poured a slightly hazy, light, orangey gold with a small, off-white head that mostly diminished leaving virtually no lacing. The aroma had toasted malt and cracker; garlic bread, bread stick, garlic basil, tomato and oregano; and of those garlic might have been the strongest. The initial flavor was lightly sweet and slightly acidic; while the finish was slightly sweet, moderately acidic and ever so slightly bitter with a short duration. There was tomato, pale malts, garlic, basil, oregano, pizza, tomato sauce, hints of caramel, bread, cracker, vegetable, slight straw, and pizza bagel bites. The light body was watery with fizzy carbonation and a dry and ever-so-slightly astringent finish.

Bottle to stemless wine glass (just like the bottle suggests). Looks solid; a hazy apricot with eggshell head that dissipates into thin lacing pretty quickly. Smells of basil, tomato paste, and garlic. Tastes like it smells with some oregano as well. Average on the palate. Interesting, but not something I’d have again; a little goes a long way.

bartlebier (3196) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - AUG 18, 2014
(retrieved from 08/2013 Midwest jpg backlog). 12oz bottles from CHI, consumed on site and at home when its BB passed its gift date. Tastes like Aldi plastic bruschetta mix shaker that has fallen from the kitchen cabinet straight into a Midwest Lite Lager, although one slightly better than Miller. Fizzy, watery, with heaps of artificial oregano and it seems iodised salt. Not wholly horrible, and not a drainpour, this hard to resist gimmick. Pity the bottles were so heavy or I would have brought some extras to show what the US of A can come up with, apart from DFH 90minute and Bourbon County.

Shared with momos crew. Golden pour with small white head dissipates. Huge oregano aroma. Smells like pizza goldfish and cheese bread sticks from a pizza place. Bready with basil and garlic. Gimmicky and lame but it could be worse. I would not drink more than half a glass but worth a taste.

Welp, thanks stevencon! This beer tastes, smells, and looks like Momo's. You don't eat pizza that isn't yours!

Poured into pint glass. Nice golden appearance. Smells just like pizza, weird! Tastes the same, great sipping but hard to drink! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This beer is disgustingly delicious. It really does taste like a pizza. Smells like doughy crust and oregano. Its light copper color with no lasting foam.
