MAMMA MIA! PIZZA BEER!

I remember reading about Mamma Mia Pizza Beer a couple of years ago, getting curious enough to want to try and find it, and then promptly forgetting about it. You can't get it in Michigan but on a recent trip to Wisconsin, I saw a display of it and instantly grabbed a bottle.

 
I must admit, it's a unique product. It's beer...Brewed with actual pizza. From their website: 
The Margarita pizza is put into the mash & steeped like a tea bag. A whole wheat crust made with water, flour & yeast is topped with tomato, oregano, basil & garlic. The essence of the pizza spices is washed off with hot water and filtered into a brewpot, where it is boiled for a long, long time...
My BFF's boyfriend was brave enough to try it with me. It looked innocent enough. It smelled pretty mild. Suprisingly mild. Like beer and oregano. We faced tasting it with trepidation and curiosity.
 Well...Here it goes.
Yep. It goes. The verdict? Meh. I was kind of hoping it would be surprisingly delicious or outrageously disgusting. I think we were both kind of expecting the latter.

 Andy survived it.
 So did I.

It basically tasted like a standard crappy lager with the addition of some oregano and extremely mild garlic and tomatoes. Not disgusting. Not delicious. Kind of weird. But mostly meh.

Eating pizza = A+
Pizza Beer = D
