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

shintriad (700) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 8, 2005
Rich amber with medium beige head, stringy lacing. Very deep grassy, citrussy aroma with a bit of toffeeish malts. I’m very happy to see a local micro with this much bitterness up front, which quickly melts into a slightly malty background. Sharp carbonation, a bit oily, a bit minerally. A solid, unpretentious, nearly British-style ale that could use a bit more oomph, but it’s still a very good example of the style.

aroma is great with caramel, malt, hoppy. like a nice mild double ipa. pallate is thin and it is only mildy flavorful. like mixing a great ipa. with water maybe, not offensive, just a bit thin.

blankboy (6052) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 16, 2005
Bottle. Pours a copper brown with an average white fizzy head. Aroma is moderately hoppy. Taste has a great balance of hops and malts, there’s just enough hops to satisfy this hop-head. A nicely balanced, great tasting Pale Ale. One of my favourites.

Boutip (4726) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 13, 2005
Bottle: Poured a copper color ale with a huge off-white foamy head with pretty good retention. Aroma of floral hops mix with some bitter hops. Taste is dominated by bitter hops with some floral aspect also present. Wow, I’m glad there are more and more Canadian breweries that are brewing heavier hops beers then in the past.

DerWeg (1494) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 21, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2005 ReRate fresh (non stubby silkscreened) bottle. This is more like it. Powerful and bold yet refreshing pale ale with substantial hop signature. Toasty malts add sweetness under grapefruity complex hops, Aroma more subdued than taste. Good.<P> Original rating: Stubby cold as ice, Betty’s. Very hoppy bite throughout although not pleasantly so. Malt does not balance the full-frontal mouth attack nor is the hop character so interesting (as it is in say Sgt. Major’s IPA) As the glass warms I find nothing more interesting to report. Not bad beer but for me it was tiresome, I was ready to order something else. 5/3/5/3/9 = 2.5

heemer77 (5100) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAY 19, 2005
Bottle from pintbypint. Poured a dark hazy orange with a slightly yellowish head. The aroma is flowery with brown sugar and oranges. The taste is slightly bitter toasted bread with some peanuts. Sticky mouthfeel. A nicely balanced APA.

JoeMcPhee (8410) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 2, 2005
On tap. Rich amber colour, thin sticky white head. Cascade aroma, some sweet caramel malt. Flavour is sweet up front, with bready and toasty malts mingling nicely with light citrus hop character. I would like a bit more hop aroma, but still quite good.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 29, 2005
Love that bottle. Pours a nice amber in color, fairly hazy, with slight head. Sweet malty aroma, syrupy sweet with a hint of citrus. Chewy mouthfeel. Lts of hops and malts going on here - toffee and caramel, orange and pineapple, very lively on the palate, sweet and sour in perfect harmony. A vey enjoyable brew. Well Done! Thanks to radiomgb for the brew!

Chugalug (29) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - APR 28, 2005
Very attractive amber ale. Nicely hopped, with not too much complexity. Noticeable citrus notes. Quite smooth yet lively on the tongue--worth a sample. Reminds me of Anchor Steam.
