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

Bottle sample at a tasting at Ariel’s place. Thanks Rotem. Pours reddish bronze with a thick off white head. Hoppy, grainy aroma. Tastes malty with a gentle bitterness. Bready, long aftertaste, soft carbonation, light body.

DSG (5812) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 14, 2012
Bottle sample at a tasting at Ariel’s place. Thanks Rotem. Clear bright reddish amber with an off-white head. Aroma of stale hops and some malt. Flavor has a bit of caramelly and biscuity malt, a bit of hops and a moderately bitter finish. Medium-bodied. Decent.

Bière à la robe cuivrée où une mousse éphémère fait une brève apparition. Le nez est construit autour du malt, du caramel et du houblon, avec des effluves épicées qui se font sentir lorsque le liquide prend la température de la pièce. Un goût qui s’approprie, lui aussi, le malt et le caramel. Une douce et agréable amertume se fait sentir . Des pointes épicées sont, à l’occasion, perçues. Elle ressemble plus à une ESB. Il faudrait que j’en consomme une autre. (384-041012)

On tap at a pub in downtown Ottawa during our first outing as a residency group. Pours a reddish bronze. Woody, spicy aroma with some off putting burnt caramel. Milder flavor, thin of bitter pine and orange peel. Not bad.

Scopey (6865) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2012
Bottle at the Rose & Crown, Banff. It pours clear amber, with a thin-medium off-white head. The nose is brown bread, toast, earth and light spice. The taste is caramel, toast, wood, leaf, strong malt backbone, leather and light spice, with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Not bad….

341ml bottle pours a clear dark reddish amber ale with a thick off-white head and coarse lacing. Aroma of malt, hops and citrus. Taste of mild sweetness, then refreshing bitter, and some spicy notes; well balanced and rather nice.

When all hope is lost, there is (usually) always Tankhouse. Pours deep amber, with a thin, white head. The aroma is chiefly of caramel, toast, and honey. This is maltier than a lot of beers of the style, but it’s a nice caramel-like maltiness. There is a decent hop finish, solidifying and balancing the beer. Always a refreshing change from typically citrus-forward American Pale Ales.

On tap at Hop & Vine tap house in north Burnaby. Moderate carbonation. The color is a very encouraging dark amber. The payoff is in the flavor. A big load of both malts and hops in this one. Enough to make you smile!

Not sure why I waited so long to pick this up. Quality ale. Smells of sweet christmas oranges. Flavour is pleasant citrus and caramel with nice bitter finish. Quite delicious.

My stand-by session beer. This is a great tasting pale ale. Fairly hoppy for a main-stream beer, with a good level of malty goodness to balance it out. For a widely available, commercially friendly, mainstream beer... you can’t expect much more. About as flavourful as a light beer can be. Solid.
