Pizza Boy Permasmile 4.3
750 mL unlabeled bottle poured into a snifter. Originally reviewed 7/16/2013. Hazy bright orange. Nice white head. Chunky foam on the surface. Retains pretty well. Smell has lots of nice apricot. Lemon peel acidity. A touch of funk, but light. Wheat and grain. Tastes of grain and fruit. Less distinctly apricot, but you still get it. Lactic sourness. A touch of wine in the finish. Lemony. Medium light, well carbonated. Moderate sourness. This was a remarkable treat to have driving through Harrisburg. I was expecting something far less nuanced than this. Pleasant acidity, great barrel character, just the right amount of fruit and dirty funkiness.

Pizza Boy Simcoe SamuRYE 3.5
Draft at Alís / Pizza Boy in Enola. Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is medium to dark amber. Aroma is lightly malty (caramel, toasted grain), moderately hoppy (apricot, orange, grapefruit, resin). Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. I have to give credit to PB for getting good hop expression...most Simcoe beers reek of onion, but this is a fruit bomb, as are most of their hoppy brews. Nice beer if a tad sweet.

Pizza Boy Mango Bomb 4.1
Draft at Whole Foods, and with all due respect, the two raters prior to me should piss off. The pour was pulpy pineapple juicy with minimal head. the nose was intense mango, resiny hops, and mild fusels. The taste was an up front, intense mango flavor paired with resiny hops, then some late vodka flavor. The alcohol was well hidden, and the mango took center stage, with the incredible IBU level serving to "calm down" the gigantic ABV. All in all, this one was definitely unorthodox, but definitely delicious.

Pizza Boy Mango Bomb 3
On tap at the source 4/11/16. Pours like a smoothie of bile and spinach. Looks awful. Can't see through it even a little. Cloudy gone way too far and I like cloudy. Smells like green hops, citrus. Taste is green, ripe mango, tropical fruit, a bit of burn (probably because this is a glass full of yeast), green. It's not bad but what the fuck. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Camba Bavaria / Pizza Boy Al Camboyís 4.1
Aromat: bardzo delikatny, czekolada i paloność. Wygląd: barwa czarna, piana średnio obfita. Smak: słodki czekoladowe praliny i palność, w tle kawa i wanilia, goryczka średnia. Tekstura: likierowe, wysycenie niskie. Ogůlne wrażenie: pomimo delikatnego aromatu, smak to idealna esencja stylu - czyli słodko gorzki likier czekoladowy wraz z innymi aromatami. Alkohol dobrze ukryty. Degustacyjne, ale pije się bardzo szybko.

Pizza Boy Sunny Side Up - Guajillo Chili & Cinnamon 4
The pour was basically black with a dark brown head and some decent lacing around the glass. The nose was full of chocolate, cream, cinnamon, pepper and a touch of booze. The flavors featured most of those same qualities, with notes of sweet malt and just a touch of bitter hops. The flavors and body were very well balanced. The chili and cinnamon wasnít thrown in just to try to "make the beer different" from the other varieties. Those ingredients were not overpowering at all. They supplied just enough flavor to make it stand out.

Pizza Boy Winter Farmhouse (Cinnamon Sticks) 3.7
Draft at Misconduct. Mostly clear pale orange gold pour with soft white foam. Quickly dying splashes of lace. Cinnamon and lemon. They do not normally work well together but it sort of works here. Bright citrus hops. Cinnamon sticks. Oranges spiked with cloves. Slight tart funk. Unusual. Reasonably well balanced.

Pizza Boy Sunny Side Up - Double Coffee 4.2
32oz crowler thing poured into some appropriate glassware by GenDV110+OT. Thanks Donny! Enjoyed on his momís couch. Could not finish lest I send back all over his momís couch. Probably best not tasted after about 100 ounces of KBS earlier in the evening. Dammit Donny. Black with small tan head. Tons of coffee with dark chocolate, toffee. Really really good.

Pizza Boy Lacto Calrissian 3.8
32 oz aluminum can crowler thing, poured into a tulipy-sniftery fancy glass. Shared by GenDV110+OT at his house after a spirited run through Fairfax County. Dammit Donny, I shant be blamed for constantly tailgating you to within 3 inches of your bumper when you stubbornly refuse to go faster than15mph over the speed limit, despite driving a German car with the letters GT in the model name. What is the point of owning these German toys if you wonít stretch their legs once in a while. As for the beer, it was pretty good. Orange-gold with small white head. Citurs, peel, tart and acidic. Lacks the funkiness I wanted, but still decent. Dammit Donny.
