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

One of my favorite beers. This beer is brewed in Toronto, Canada and itís a killer when fresh. Unique flavour and long aftertaste.

zeek (165) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 18, 2012
Pours less carbonation than most Mill St beers, 1 cm head in a regular glass. Great aroma of hops and malt, no gimmicks. Taste is not complex, but in a good way. Finishes bitter.

Digital_Aura (227) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 28, 2012
341ml bottle (from seasonal variety pack). Pours a weak head/ok lacing. Light colored orange-brown (Lovibond 12). Aroma of earthy malts, dough, and grapefruity hops. Tastes like citrus and cookie dough - odd how well balanced this is. It's slightly sweet but bitter, especially the finish. Good palate. Medium carbonation.

Gerbeer (1488) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 28, 2012
341 ml bottle from Big Ridge. Pours a perfect ambler with little head. Roasted malt and caramel to the nose with hints of hay/grass. Nicely balanced toffee/toasted malt and hop flavors.

bunget (436) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 10, 2012
341ml bottle. Deep orange-copper colour. Big yellow head with low retention. Caramel aroma, hops and dried apricot. Bold taste of bitter hops and malt, dry. Enjoyable. I found myself to drink this one quite often as itís widely available.

UPDATED: JUN 11, 2012 May 6 2012. 341ml bottle pours a clear deep amber color with a finger of white head that settles down to tight cap producing nice lacing for a while. Aroma is toasted malts with some sweet maple and grassy hops. Taste is light caramel malty sweetness with some toasted malt notes and a grassy hop bitterness in the finish. Excellent carbonation leave a nice soft silky feeling on the tongue. Strong hop aftertaste leaves citrus mouthfeel. Great balance, great beer!

As far as I know this is your best bet for an Ontarian ale which will please both the snobs and the lagerboys in your soiree. They set out to make a classic and succeeded. Great for sessions. Definitely a little more malty than hoppy but whoís complaining? Isnít it said that itís much more difficult to make a good tasting beer that isnít masked by hops? Great blend of caramel/biscuit/citrus. The only reason Iím not rating it higher is that itís just not one of my favourite styles... but it rates high within its style percentile and thatís the one that matters.

In the last five years, there is no other beer that I have consumed more of. It is, hands down, my favourite beer of all time.

341mL thanks to solidfunk. Pours deep amber with a larger, beige head. Sheen appearance and rockier retention. Soapy lacing. Nose is decently hoppy, small orange peel, but dominated by sweet rolls and heavy malt. Taste is malt forward, sweet rolls, quite bready with hints of fruit juiciness. No soap, no cheesy hops, no stale candies, no stickiness. Not so bad. Should be moved to Amber Ale. Tannic, sharper palate.
