Crimson/copper pour, aggressive carbonation lead to a consistent thin head. Not much on the nose. Detect hints of caramel and slight hops. I like the balance and the touch of bitter hops on the palate but I’m not a fan of the thick, carbonated mouthfeel. Finishes nicely.

Nouveauté sur nos tablettes au Québec. Bière rousse aux reflets acajou, exhaussée d’une mousse généreuse. Nez intéressant de malt grillé avec des noisettes. En bouche, c’est goûteux, riche, la texture est parfaite : notes de malt, de houblons, de noisettes, de caramel. C’est complexe et agréable. Au-delà de mes attentes. Cheers!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.341 bottle. Clear, gold color and a small, white head. Aroma of citruses, pines, and grass. Taste is crisp, toast, citruses, some malts. A medium body, a slick texture, and an average carbonation. Finish is medium long and relatively sweet. Overall not a bad pale ale, but it is still just a pale ale.

Attack: crisp, thin entry
Mid-palate: toasted malt backbone, (lvl-4-sweetness), half-creamy, dry grassy hops, tongue prickly,

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly hazy dark amber, almost copper color, beige 1 finger head, lasting 2 minutes, with good legs and tons of activity.
Sweet aromas of nutty toffee and bitter spices. Inviting smell. Very sour toasty citrus flavors. Heavily spicy with a thick hoppy feel.
Medium body with subtle carbonation, strong finish with a long bitter smoky mouth coat and a dry end.
Overall : Packed with flavors, but slightly off in freshness and not finding the bitterness pleasing.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
The aroma has a wet character, fresh hops, some cloves and spice with subtle hints of banana bread. Clear, filtered lacquer brown colour. Tight off white stable head. Nutty, bitter upfront lessened by a following milk chocolate bitterness. Total mouth fulfilling and complex flavour, with a lingering after taste on the back of the tongue. It’s my job to explain the experience of drinking the ale and if I could opine for a second, and comment not just on the experience but also the enjoyment of the ale I must say Tank house Ale is one of my all time favourite beers. Sessionable, confident, complex and so very delicious!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(On tap at Madison Ave Pub, Toronto, Jan 12 2016) Pours clear dark brownish amber with an off white head and no lace. Aroma is sweet with caramel, toffee, some earthy and kind of piney hops with just a bit of citrus fruitiness. Flavour mimics nose with lots of toffee sweetness to the malt, hops are pine, resin and earth dominated, a little bit of toast too. Some grapefruit and floral notes peek into the finish, which is medium-dry thanks to some bittering. Aftertaste has some grainy bread. Average mouthfeel, a bit sticky, carbonation is above average. Not bad as far as a malty pale ale goes, nothing really surprising here. A standby at places with mediocre tap selections.
