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

Foxy amber; good off-white creamy head. Gorgeous hoppy-grapey nose, dry, hay. Dry-bitterish with quite some sweetness underneath. Retronasal fully hoppy (USA hops). Medium bodied, certain slickness. Very good American amber ale. Not a hopmonster, but a fine well-hopped beer, with plenty to tell you. Thanks, TW.

DuffMan (8057) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 18, 2007
Deep orange-amber, a little hazy with an orange-tinged head. Aromas of citrus oils and soft fruit with some woody notes. These features carry over nicely into the palate, although I found it to be a little thin and overly carbonated. Still very enjoyable.

j12601 (8000) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - APR 16, 2010
Bottle. Pours a clear coppery ruby browned amber with a vigorous large softly mocha hewn beige head. Very nice caramel malt and big hop presence. Medium bodied, a bit on the sweet side, and I guess all of the carbonation went to the enormous head since the beer itself seems just slightly flatter than I’d like. Nice light bitter hop finish. Decent and sessionable. Should have saved this guy until my curry later tonight.

473ml can, via tarde, thanks Asheft. Ambrée, col blanc. Arôme est malté, caramel moyen, léger bouquet houblonné noble. Palais est malté pâle, caramel, houblonné dans un style fleuri et fruité-citronné pour une fine amertume. Malté reste persistant avec une fine couche de grillé en fin de bouche.

KyotoLefty (7876) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 20, 2008
On tap at the Brewpub. Good amber color with lacing. Fruity, hoppy aroma, seems like cascade taking the lead. Flavor of darkish malts, caramel. Big and well-balanced with a bitter hoppy finish. Hop-driven and well-done.

phaleslu (7668) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 23, 2010
341 ml bottle via trade with MrManning- thanks, Len! Pours dark for an APA, a dark reddish amber color with a small off-white head. Aroma of citrusy hops, caramel malts, earthy notes, and a slight spicy note. Flavor of citrusy hops, caramel malts, tea, apples, and wet leaves. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a tea mouthfeel. Nice sessionable APA from Toronto.

mabel (7455) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 1, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2009 [093-20061104] Tap @ Mill St. (Toronto, ON). Hoppy aroma. Clear, dark amber body with a medium-foamy off-white head and bubbles along the outer rim. Quite a clean and distinct hoppy, grainy flavour. Medium body that may be ascerbic. Beautiful colour! (6/5/7/3/14) 3.5

[1802B-20081017] Cask. Slightly farty hops aroma with mild smoky earth and an off floralness. Slightly hazy, amber brown body with a long-lasting bubbly off-white head. Mild tea and smoky earth and green green hops continues in the flavour. Medium body. Extra green is not extra great. (6/3/7/3/12) 3.1
(Cask Days 2008 @ Volo; Toronto, ON; Called "Green-Hopped")

Ughsmash (7387) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 22, 2006
Bottle thanks to HogTownHarry. Poured a clear medium caramel with a rather long-lived cap of off-white head. Lots of lovely lacing followed it down. Nose was of soapy citrus, caramel, and some woodsy maltage... wish it was just a tad stronger. Caramel and floral bittering hops give the first impression on the palate. Citrus and pine highlights found the edges of the tongue.. felt a little stale. Light-medium bodied with a solid level of bitterness.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2007
A Mes rate: Bottle at RBESG. Dark amber. Quite aggressive and hoppy with some sweet notes underneath. Sweetness turns to caramel in the flavour and doesnt quite work. Hoppy finish sort it all out. Interesting stuff.
