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

meh... too much hype for a sub par beer. looks nice, pours well and even smells good, but it’s a bit too hoppy for my pallete. not indicitave of other Mill St. brews though.

Crockett (1002) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 28, 2005
Pours copper with a little off white head. Nose of grapefruit, caramel and pine. Very crisp and clean with a good dose of hops. Lightly toasted malts and ample even hops throughout. As far as this beer goes it is a decent example. Previous samples didn’t do very much for me. Although not perfect, it shows that across the board that Mill Street is progressing very nicely in their ability to make solid beers. Originally I had given the beer a 2.4.

Clear reddish copper pour, the head is thin and offwhite. While pouring the beer I could smell the superb piney and resinous hops. The flavor showcases the hops very well, nicely piney and resinous, there’s also a good dose of caramel malts to give some balance. Surprisingly the finish isn’t very bitter, which is ok for me since I prefer hops flavor over hops bitterness. The palate is clean and smooth with a light to medium body, a creamy and oily texture and moderate carbonation. A well done APA, interesting since I never like this brewery’s products so far.

Very good ale. Copper-red colour with nice white head. Taste of spices, malts. Medium to full body. Visit them in the Distillery District in Toronto.

Silphium (3158) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - OCT 19, 2005
Cool little bottle courtesy Dan (jah noth). Slightly hazy amber body with aggressive carbonation and a medium-thick buff head. Bready aroma with resiny (pine) and grassy hops. Nicely hopped body, with earthy, bitter, piney hops (including just a touch of grapefruit skin) melding with the toasty, light malts in the backdrop. Quite an herbal potpourri of classic APA flavors. The zesty carbonation leaves a nice "zip" on the palate. Very fresh-tasting and well-done.

richlikebeer (838) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 25, 2005
hoppy aroma, some caramel, a slightly murky bronze color, lots of malts up front, hops at the back, with a slightly chocolate finish.. nice smooth body, and a mildly sweet finish. more malt than most american pales, and the chocolate was a pleasant surprise. thanks to radiomgb for this from a long time ago.

paco (527) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - SEP 24, 2005
On tap at the Queenshead in Toronto. Hoppy aroma. Rusty red colour, lasting thin white head. Reminded me of Smithwicks at first taste. Somewhat bitter. Smooth, refreshing palate with a nice warming finish. I hope they sell this in Saskatchewan soon.

bottle, unlike the one pictured. copper pour with a generous off white head. Pine hop aroma. Well, the beer smells like hops, however, it has little if any hop presence. Mainly malt, some grapefruitiness to start, malt in the middle and finish...Ehh
