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.

Can @ home. Clear amber pour with a big, soapy, khaki head. Amazing grapefruit and pineapple aromas. Like, really nice and unexpectedly good. A lot of fruits, some caramel malts, and toast. The flavor is still pretty good and fruit forward, but falls a little bit flat when compared to the aroma. Nice malt sweetness and toasted bread. Good grapefruit, some pine and earthy bitterness, and dried pineapple. Solid, though.

mcberko (16253) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 2, 2016
On tap at April Brews Day, pours a hazy copper with a medium off-white head. Aroma brings out lots of bready malt upfront, followed by resinous hops. Flavour is along the same lines, with bready caramel malt and resinous hops. Has a sort of puff pastry quality. Meh.

bhensonb (14748) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 24, 2016
Can from Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours dark copper with a foamy beige head. Aroma of strange fruits over somewhat roasty malt. Med + body. Flavor is amber - including nuts and a bit of chocolate - but theres a good deal of hop. Im thinking tropical with just a bit of citrus. Could be kiwi fruit. Goes a bit earthy with time.
