I believe that if you name something toaster pastry that it should taste like a toaster pastry, which this doesn't.

Pours a reddish copper, as advertised. Not much in the way of a head, but what is there laces nicely. Smell is hop forward pine but with a notable strawberry jam undercurrent. Taste is not nearly as fruity as I expected, although it's plenty sweet and malty. The back end is super bitter and swampy, which is a surprising turn of events considering the light breezy aroma. It's a nice contrast that makes for a complex, tasty sip. Mouthfeel starts like a red ale and then drifts into something heavier, but again, I find it a nice and complex experience.

L. Deep copper red with thin off white head that coats the glass

S. Hop forward bready and slightly sweet

T. Solid toasty malt backbone but plenty of bitterness to balance it out. Bitterness lingers.

F. Viscous mouthfeel lingers on tongue

O. Bitterness limits it's drinkability

1 pint, 3.2 oz. can - Canned on 10/12/16 (stamped on bottom):

Pours penny copper with a fluffy lasting head that leaves lacing.

The smell is of caramel/toffee with citrus and a hint of pine. A whiff of strawberry comes through on subsequent smells. It has a pleasant aroma.

The taste is of a malt character that reminds me of an Irish Red ale. It mixes with tropical and citric fruit bitterness. A hint of strawberry gives it an interesting, pleasant unique twist. Malt and hops tied together by a doughy character. Complex, yet approachable, it's a pleasantly enjoyable brew.

Some alcohol shows, but not too sharp or raw.

A unique, nicely hopped, with a solid malt character, red ale. Unique and enjoyable.

Toaster Pastry | 21st Amendment Brewery. Poured from the can into a pint glass, this brew's got a two finger thick light tan head, with solid lacing, and a clear deep reddish brown body.

I smell caramel malts with citrus and tropical hops.

Tastes like a bitter strawberry Pop Tart, straight up.

The mouthfeel medium with mild carbonation.

I'll give Toaster Pastry | 21st Amendment Brewery a rating of a 4.5. I'd definitely pick this up again.

From a can. Nice red IPA. I don't get the biscuit side of the pastry, but the strawberry comes though lightly at the end. It doesn't overpower a very nice hoppy red. I'd be happy to have this one in the fridge
