Really...what did you expect? Fizzy like a macrobrew, lager-ish and thin, with noticeable flavors of carbonated ketchup and oregano. God, the oregano. So, so much oregano. Started as a joke, but damned if I’m not gonna be having pizza burps all night without the benefit of a single slice. Smells like what it is. And what it is is a terrible idea. (9/2009)

Not a fresh bottle shared by Pruf at a tasting. I can out the same ingredients into a beer and it wont taste like this. Its very much like a baked bread, tomato, and spices flavor and aroma. Its a bit sickening actually. I almost feel like some artificial flavors were added b/c tomatoes and garlic dont really add that much flavor when added to beer. The basil was particularly strong. A great beer to share at a tasting but I don’t think I could drink a whole bottle.

Bottle at Liquid Sunshine. Courtesy of Chris, who saved it in honor of Alberto’s first visit to Seattle. Amazing. Solid, heavy gold. Pizza! Oregano! Chef Boyardee! Lagery sweet base. Awful. But also amazing.

Bottle sent to me by Bacterial - thanks! I’m torn on how to rate this. On the one hand, it smells and tastes remarkably like a pizza (or more accurately a garlic knot dipped in pizza/marinara sauce like you might find at Little Caesar’s - yeah, I know they don’t serve garlic knots, but the aroma is still basically crazy sauce). And I guess that’s exactly what they’re going for, so props for being able to execute on such an out there idea. On the other hand, it’s a terrible idea, and no matter how perfectly you capture the essence of a pizza, a pizza beer is doomed to be gross. So how do you rate such a beer? Shrug and just put up some numbers.

Bottle pour skated by Pruf. Thanks! I thought you were kidding when you said you had this. Pale pour. Garlic, tomato, and dough aroma. Flavor matches. The beer is exactly what we thought they were! And we let them off the hook! Pizza and beer were better paired, but not married.

Bottle at Liquid On tap at the source in Seattle-USA. Bottle. Hazy orange pour, no big foam. Nose: oregano, over cooked pizza. Mouth: weird. Pizza, oregano. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.
