Golden pour with a little head and no lacing. Smooth flavor with a nice hint of basil and oregano coming through, really giving it a subtle pizza flavor. Unique in many ways, this was more enjoyable than I expected. nolankowal (939) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 20, 2007
Growler RBSG 07. Yellow pour with a short white head. Aroma of oregano, basil, tomato, light pepper and pale malt. Flavors of basil, light tomato, pale malt, yeast, and oregano. Light body, malty, spicy, pizza-ie. The most interesting brew of that night hands down, I only wish I had a slice of pepperoni at the time for garnish. Major points for originality.

On tap at the brewpub on 6/20/07: Pours a transparent yellow golden with a full-lacing frothy white head. Aroma of basil, oregano and garlic along with a touch of pale malt, really does smell like pizza. Body starts with some light caramel malty sweetness, a touch of bready yeast, tomato and Italian spice balance. Incredibly unique and strangely enjoyable.

RBSG 07 Minneapolis Grand Tasting: Hazy gold, no head or lacing. Nose of basil, a little oregano, light tomato, some malt and dough. The flavor is clean, light malts, lots of spices. Interesting beer that really tastes like pizza. Wish I could try a pint. bu11zeye (13702) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - SEP 16, 2007
(Growler) Pours a lightly cloudy amber body with a small white head. Aroma of basil, oregano, olives, tomato, and sour dough. Somewhat offensive herbal flavor with garlic and tomato. Interesting...

Wierd. Hazed yellow with no head. It smells and tastes like pizza spices. Oregano and garlic seemed to be in the front. Certainly worth trying.
RBSG 2007 Grand Tasting. Cloudy yellow with no head. Oregano/basil nose and flavor, some breadiness. Weak body detracts from what could have been a pretty interesting beer. I think some flavors are noticed through the power of "pizza suggestion". Still, not bad for what is basically a gimmick beer. troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - JUL 21, 2007
(Tap @ Brewpub) Pours a hazy light amber color, with little head. Very fragrant, with a strong oregano aroma that can be detected across the table. I personally expected more in the way of tomatoes, but all I really got was the spices (oregano, basil, garlic) and some funk. Garlic is especially notable in the aftertaste. That being said, this is still a very good beer that is certainly worth trying! I could have actually drank a couple more of these. muzzlehatch (4975) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 11, 2007
Sample from growler, RBSG Minneapolis Grand Tasting, June 23 2007. Pale amber with no real head, oily-looking....overpowering basil aroma, hints of tomato creep in, lightly doughy malts, and eventually some smokiness.....the flavor is, actually rather pizza-like, or more precisely, bruschetta: lots of tomato, light Italian spicing, light bready malts....unfortunately it’s too thin, watery, and has almost no carbonation; a better mouthfeel and this would be more than just a novelty, which is what it is in its current state if you ask me. Still, an interesting one and one of my favorite memories from RBSG regardless of the numbers.
