Dare we call it tart?

Just in time for breakfast, mental_floss came up with a list of breakfast-themed beers. One of them is “Toaster Pastry” from 21st Amendment Brewery in San Francisco, and they’re serious, kinda sorta:

Our first beer out of our new brewery is an homage to its former life as a toaster pastry factory.

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.

Yep. Kellogg’s used to produce Pop-Tarts in that very building. I’m sure it doesn’t actually taste like a Pop-Tart — a Pop-Tart other than strawberry, anyway — but the curiosity has been stirred. (And if you pour it properly, does it appear frosted?)
