COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like traditional pale ales, Tankhouse Ale has a deep copper-red colour. We use five different malts to produce a complex malty texture. The most dominant character of our Pale Ale is the hop. The spicy Cascades is used to give an assertive hop flavour, aroma and bitterness to our ale. The result is a satisfying and complex-tasting beer. Our brewmaster developed this recipe 20 years ago and it has remained his favorite drink of choice

Can (473 ml), shared. Clear golden with a small white head leaving little lacing. Aroma is bland with caramel notes, mild spiciness and herbal notes. Taste is also rather boring with caramel, mild spiciness, herbal notes and mild bitterness. Medium body, but somewhat weak and watery. Medium carbonation. Herbal and mildly earthy-mineral finish. Short aftertaste. Not bad, rather easy drinking but bland and boring.

Nouveauté sur nos tablettes au Québec. Bière rousse aux reflets acajou, exhaussée d’une mousse généreuse. Nez intéressant de malt grillé avec des noisettes. En bouche, c’est goûteux, riche, la texture est parfaite : notes de malt, de houblons, de noisettes, de caramel. C’est complexe et agréable. Au-delà de mes attentes. Cheers!

KoNrRiI (1177) - Århus, DENMARK - MAR 28, 2016
0.341 bottle. Clear, gold color and a small, white head. Aroma of citruses, pines, and grass. Taste is crisp, toast, citruses, some malts. A medium body, a slick texture, and an average carbonation. Finish is medium long and relatively sweet. Overall not a bad pale ale, but it is still just a pale ale.

sulawang (999) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 7, 2016
Visual: (seasonal sampler 6-pack). Pours reddish brown with no significant head, super thin hazy retention, singular micro streams all over. Nose: brown sugar booze-laced toffee malts. (lvl-5)-pungency Attack: crisp, thin entry Mid-palate: toasted malt backbone, (lvl-4-sweetness), half-creamy, dry grassy hops, tongue prickly, Finish: hints of vanilla, thin body residual barley malt finish. Summary: Decent drinkability with okay complexity of malt, hops, and a touch of spice. It’s a bit thin in mouthfeel though.

Bierdimpfe (208) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 28, 2016
Slightly hazy dark amber, almost copper color, beige 1 finger head, lasting 2 minutes, with good legs and tons of activity. Sweet aromas of nutty toffee and bitter spices. Inviting smell. Very sour toasty citrus flavors. Heavily spicy with a thick hoppy feel. Medium body with subtle carbonation, strong finish with a long bitter smoky mouth coat and a dry end. Overall : Packed with flavors, but slightly off in freshness and not finding the bitterness pleasing.

___Steve___ (71) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 14, 2016
The aroma has a wet character, fresh hops, some cloves and spice with subtle hints of banana bread. Clear, filtered lacquer brown colour. Tight off white stable head. Nutty, bitter upfront lessened by a following milk chocolate bitterness. Total mouth fulfilling and complex flavour, with a lingering after taste on the back of the tongue. It’s my job to explain the experience of drinking the ale and if I could opine for a second, and comment not just on the experience but also the enjoyment of the ale I must say Tank house Ale is one of my all time favourite beers. Sessionable, confident, complex and so very delicious!
