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

Oakes (13272) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 2, 2003
Orange-tinged dark amber; aroma shows rich fruity hoppiness (cherry, plum), plus woody notes, and lightly smokey crystal malts. Nicely balanced beer...grapefruit, wood, chewy earthiness. The crystal almost gets out of hand, but not quite. Fresh-tasting, with a lingering bitterness. Not as bombastic as Alpha King, nor as straightforward as SNPA, this is a fairly unique rendition of the style.

bierkoning (10920) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - APR 4, 2008
Bottle from Cracked Kettle. Amber color. Earthy, oily citric hopaaroma. Earthy hopbitter flavor, citric with licorice. Blackcurrant. Longish aftertaste. Hint of metal in the finish. The balance could be better, but this is a tasty ale.

daknole (10112) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 13, 2008
This is a really good beer and underrated in my opinion. Pours a nice amber color with a small head. The aromas of malt, hops and maybe even a hint of whiskey. fFlavor is creamy and malty with a nice hop balance. Very drinkable and super smooth. Reminds me of a Sam Adams Boston Lager, but a bit smoother and less harsh.

hopdog (9618) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 4, 2006
12oz bottle acquired in trade with BlankBoy (thanks!). Poured a medium and see through amber color with a huge (5 finger) sized off white head. Aromas of caramel, citrus, biscuity, lightly spicy and all around earthy. Tastes of caramel, citrus, lightly spicy, and lightly grassy. Body a tad on the thinner side.

Sammy (9326) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 29, 2004
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.

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.
