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

UPDATED: AUG 8, 2005 re-rate. We complain about the lack of hops here with our Ontario micro’s but here is a great example, and it is not a gimmick either. Wonderful hops in aroma, fruity. Some malt as well. Deep orange colour with a fluffy white head. Mouthfeel is a little thin and maybe a tad over carbonated, but there is a nice malt sweetness and caramel taste to back it up and a nice balanced dose of hop bitterness that lingers. A great balanced example of the style, well done guys.

I did find some flavour in this brew, but had to ignore the metalic undercurrent. The flavour that needs to be brought out is a malty balance. Back to the lab, boys.

jgb9348 (4626) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 24, 2004
Amber coloured body with orange highlights and a small off-white head. Aroma of pale malt and some american hops with little else. Light to Medium-bodied; Malty flavour with a nice hoppiness with floral qualities. Overall, a decent apa from canada! I got this pint on draught at a small pub in Toronto, Ontario and not in that stubby bottle pictured! I sampled this one on 09-April-2004 with my good friend Jon (JONR888710).

OKBeer (1170) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - APR 22, 2004
Orange/amber colour with a thick frothy and rocky tan coloured head. Earthy, grapefruit, and caramel aroma. Initial light caramel sweetness followed by a growing grapefuit and floral bitterness. Full bodied, almost chewy, but very drinkable and refreshing. Very nice.

Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2004
A real treat. Pours a ruby brown with a small short-lived head. First impression is of chocolate but then some hoppiness becomes apparent. Flavour lingers in the mouth with the sweetness receding into mild bitterness. A complex and wonderful ale. Certainly one of my local favourites.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - APR 15, 2004
Nice copper color, average cream color head, good lacing. Complex and well balanced aroma and flavor of earthy malts and herbal/piney hops. A little bit of citrus as well. Some lingering bitterness. Medium body, smooth. Nothing all that out of the ordinary, but very well done.

glip (21) - Kitchener, Ontario, CANADA - APR 4, 2004
Nice hop combination in the aroma, good taste, nice bite to 'er. Seems a bit dark for an APA. Enjoyable beer nonetheless.

MrManning (2003) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 28, 2004
Nice amber body with medium sized white head. Hoppy and sweet aroma. Taste is bitter and hoppy. Very refreshing. Better than I thought it would be.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 25, 2004
Golden brown color with a white head that leaves plenty of lacing. Earthy hop aroma. Nicely balanced, with a piney bitter finish. Better than I expected.

radiomgb (2182) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 20, 2004
Bright amber in colour. Aroma was of hops, earth, pine and a slight sweetness. Flavour was nicely hopped, with grapefruit and grass. Finishes with a medium dry bitterness. A straight forward and solid beer.
