COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Toaster Pastry is an absolutely fantastic India-Style Red Ale, clocking in at 7.6% ABV and 74 IBU. Biscuit malts give the beer a slightly nutty, crust-like flavor, while pale and dark crystal malts create the mouthfeel and flavors reminiscent of strawberry jam. Calypso and other experimental hops give this ruby ale a welcome bite, plus a few more in the hop back for a toasty-sweet aroma.

This was a sample at the GABF 2105 in Denver. In my tasting glass it was an amber orange with white foam. Nose of floral hops and fruit. Medium plus body and a very smooth mouth feel. Flavor is rich and almost decadent with nice caramel malts and a lot of interesting hops tastes as well. Finishes with nice bitterness. Very nice beer. I notice as I posted this review that this beer won a silver meal medal in the Double Red Ale category which makes more sense than the IPA class it is classified here.

On tap at the San Leandro location. It pours a deep golden/light copper color with an off white head. The aroma is syrupy with some pine, plum, toffee, raisin and malt syrup. Smells like an Imperial Red. The flavor is full bodied with big hop flavor and bitterness covered over by syrupy malts. Cherry, toffee and raisin stand out. Pine. Not a bad Imperial Red. Very syrupy and sweet with moderate piney bitterness to balance it just a bit. Ok.

Seems almost like a saison. Some florals and light hay in this. Pours reddish gold with creamy head. Light bitter finish with some pine. Tap at Snallygaster.

Draft pour at Snallygaster shared by a friend, thanks Mike! Amber with beige head. Aromas of sweet biscuit, toasty notes, citrus. Tastes of toasty notes, citrus, biscuit. Medium body with a dry finish. Didnt get the fruity flavors they were going for.

Draft at Snallygaster 2015. Poured a light red orange color with a small white head. Aroma was lots of juicy hops, sweet malt notes, but not overly malty - which is nice for a whatever this beer is supposed to be - an IPA or a Red Ale? I dont really get the "Toaster" aspect the beer is aiming for, but its a pretty tasty beer. Somethign that I could see trying again during the early days of Fall where you want something hoppy but with a touch of sweet malts on the finish.
