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

This is a really perfect session ale, the sort which would be great at an English style pub. Malty, with less hop influence than a typical APA, with a staggeringly long finish. Long finishes are not what I think of when I think of British style session ales. It is superb here.

JadoreBlanche (114) - London, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 2, 2005
On tap @ Cesít what!. Orangay brown coloured body with minimal head that leaves slight lacing. Aromas of hops, sour, and malts. tatse is very hoppy, slight malt, and slight nuttiness on the finish. Bitter all the way through. not bad!

BuckNaked (1230) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JAN 2, 2005
Bottle: Thanks to my secret santa for this one. Deep, mostly clear amber color with a small off white head. Light to medium bodied. Aroma: cereal grains, caramel, citrus, soap, pine, melon, roasted malt, sour grape. Taste: Grapefruit/citrus hops open things up, followed by a nice earth taste, pine, caramel, herbs, soap, light pepper. Many flavors, both sweet and hoppy, hit the tongue at about the same time. Finishes dry, watery, and lacking in much flavor.

Little stubby bottle thanks to Mr_Kimchee; Golden amber with big tan head, many rising bubbles, simple lacing. Great caramel malty nose mixed with a generous hoppy nose. Citrus and soap, tingly hints of pine. Nice malty body with tingly hops at the forefront and a rich sweet middle. Hops at the finish is soapy and strong. Easily finished in just a few lifts of the pint glass, very refreshing!

MillStreetMan (152) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 30, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2005 Undoubtedly the best regularly available beer brewed by Mill Street, which is high praise indeed. It is a deep, rich colour that is darker than your average pale ale, and packs a punch with a multitude of flavours, which are almost citrus-like, with cloves and other spice. Iím probably a bit biased because I have the Tankhouse on draft in my house, so itís the run-of-the-mill (no pun intended) beer around here. But itís an excellent beer by any measure, and certainly worthy to have on tap.

dirkules (629) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 11, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2006 woodsy, berry aroma and a citrus and earthy taste. Itís very fresh and very unique for an APA. A good local Pale. Smutty hoppiness that is Killer on hot days like these. Re-Rate even higher (July 2006)

pintbypint (2593) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 23, 2004
UPDATED: APR 7, 2006 341ml brown bottle. Brassy orange in colour. Full thick creamy head, slightly off white, good retention. Aroma of grapefruit/citrusy hops and some caramel malt. Good malt flavour, slightly earthy and chewy offset by grapefruity hops. Lingering bitter finish. Body is on the lighter side, carbonation is light. Nice session ale, solid all around.

pootzboy (1587) - Hawgville, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 17, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2004 Bought in retro "stubby" bottles. Pour reveals a dark amber-orange ale with a small white cap that laces out well. Aromas of sweet malts, grapefruity hop tone to the nose....good for a bottled APA. Front side is creamy with malt departure balanced well with tart fruity hopping (not bitter)...great balance.....finish is medium dry with the hops coming through but no bitterness....very well put together for drinkability...verrrry dinkable.
