Dark amber with a tan, moderate head.

Lots of bready caramel, tons of pine both in taste and smell, super bitter and spicy, finishing harshly dry.

Just yuck.

This was a solid red ale. I expected more fruity hops and more sweetness based on the name but what I got was a strong tasty red ale. Fairly bitter with toasty caramel malts. I do get a hint of berry if I'm really looking for it. yb

Toaster Pastry brewed by 21st Amendment Brewery, with an ABV of 7.60% This brew pours out nice light brown color with a nice off white head. The head to this brew sticks around. Really liking the look of this red ale. The smell of Toaster Pastry is rich with hops and roasted sweetness. There are some nice roasted grians and malts in the smell of this brew. The look and smell of this Red Ale are very inviting. Nothing bad so far, now on to the taste. The taste of Toaster Pastry is Bold but , rich with flavors. You first pick up on hops, then the roasted grians and malts. There is also a mild sweetness to the taste of this brew. You also get a nice amount of lacing in the glass. Toaster Pastry has a lot going on in it. I really like how smooth goes down, there is nothing overpowering about this brew at all. This is one red ale has a real nice balance to it. It is also hard to pick up on the 7.60%ABV in this brew, it is just that smooth. The mouth feel of Toaster Pastry, is Bold , Rich Hoppy , smooth and refreshing. Overall I'm giving Toaster Pastry a 4.50 out of 5. I would buy this brew again. If you are looking for a hoppy Red Ale look this one up . 21st Amendment Brewery, did a super nice job with this one.

Amber colored with an inch of creamy tan on top. This beer has little opacity partially due to the darker color and partially due to a bit of cloudiness. Light lacing. I smell amber malt with hints of caramel. I'm tasting some amber malt, caramel, a subtle nutty note, and some piney hops. The mouth lightly oily and dry.

A: Dark amber color with a frothy off white head that is 2 1/2 fingers in depth.

S: Lots of tropical fruits in the aroma; papaya, mango, pineapple as well as strawberry preserve.

T: The sweetness of the the pineapple, mango and papaya come through first in the taste. Then you get a wave of strawberry preserve/jam. The beer finishes with the same tartness/funkiness that you would find in a flanders red ale. There is a very slight presence of biscuity malts which helps to moderate the sweetness of the strawberry preserve and the tartness at the back end.

O: Very interesting and well crafted beer.

Color of candy caramel

Consistent resilient head

I'm really trying to taste anything sweet or sugary. The best I can do is a dark strawberry. Mostly I'm tasting a woody something that I appreciate but don't love. If someone bought this for me, fine. Otherwise, I'm moving on.
