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

FlacoAlto (4045) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - FEB 24, 2006
Pours a brilliantly clear, deep, dark amber color. It is topped by a frothy light tan colored head, which creates a pretty densely packed, almost creamy head, but its only about one finger thick. The aroma has a light hoppy spiciness to it which is quite nice. Underneath this is some crystal malt notes that carry both a bit of caramel and a bit of toasted malt notes.

The taste of this beer is hop dominated as well, but not in the way a pale ale might be. It is lightly spicy, with a touch of herbal grassiness to it and even has a touch of sweet citrus to it, but just a touch. The beer has a nice malty sweet backdrop to it as well, which perfectly accentuates the hop notes, but does not quit reach their level. Notes of caramel, some toffee and ample caramelized malt notes are here. The beer only has a light bitterness to it, but it is quite solid and contributes to the overall hoppy sense of this beer.

This beer is quite nice, no flavors jump out at you, but sometimes (actually many times), you don’t want that in a beer. This has been solidly put together, and it is a great beer to just drink and enjoy. I would have to say that I wish this where a tad drier, it would make it easily quaffable and the crystal malt notes might not be quite as high.

yarry (528) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 29, 2006
355 ml Bottle, 5.2% a/v Pours a fiery orange colour with a light brown head which is fairly dense. Smells of toasted malts and spice. Malty taste which is nicely balanced with a slight spice and slight fruity notes. The aftertaste is a bit unappealing at first but then it mellows into a nice sweet flavour. A pretty good beer, one i could see sitting out at a patio bar sipping. Im going to make a trip down to the Mill St brewery and do just that this summer!
