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

Pours bright amber brown with handsome pillow like top (long lasting presence)
Front welcomes you with good dose of green bitter hops (blend of citric, green leaf and minerals), sweet brown malts are found below.
Medium bodied with straight forward bitterness, raw twig. Light earthy tones with sweet honey and brown malts. Subdued yet fairly clean finish. Overall quiet rich brew that in more characteristically of stronger brews. Flavour and set up did not carry that well in time so its finish was a bit let down. Still I can very well recommend over all solid IPA that is.

DuffMan (6164) - 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.

Rastacouere (6107) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 28, 2005
Light bubbly amber with small beige head. Surprisingly sweet, caramelly and bready nose, but as it warms, earthy, citrusy and floral. Direct, to the point and surprisingly efficient despite the fact that I feel like I’ve had this beer quite a few times with different labels. Rather linear flavor presentation. Sweet palate, light-medium body, moderate carbonation.

5000 (6029) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 27, 2005
Bottle pours amber, heavy on the caramel hues, large off-white pancake batter like head, web like lacing, with very active carbonation.   Caramel malt on the nose.   Smells tasty!   Malty up front, semi-sweet, soft caramel, with a subtle hop background.   This is very smooth... delicious!   Body and mouthfeel are full to medium.   Finishes clean, malty, fairly soft, with lingering caramel sweetness and mild hop bitterness.   Thanks goes out to radiomgb for the trade!

HogTownHarry (5984) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUL 16, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2005 Draught at Volo. Poured a very bubbly, reddish amber - large, lasting, off-white head, good lacing; wonderful sparkling glass of great ale. Nose - surprising amount of blended hops, toasted malt, a little grain to remind us it’s Canadian - so balanced! Taste - oh yeah! grapefruit-citrus but not over-bitter or tart, medium toasted malt, some alcohol, pleasantly bitter but not overwhelming. Apart from some cedar on my palate, all I can say is this is a balanced, crisp, carbonated beer and deserves greater recognition in Canada.

Glouglouburp (5929) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 16, 2008
In short: A decent dry and toasted caramelized Pale Ale that could passed as an Amber Ale. Decent session beer.
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Clear red-amber body topped by a small beige head
In long: A well malted beer with a malt profile that is grainy and dry, like a toasted bread crust. The big bubbles make the beer feel a bit airy. Caramel toastiness brings distant chocolate notes. Spicy fruity hops (Cascade?, others?), short and dry bitterness. For the style I would have preferred more juicy and refreshing. Still this is a decent beer and the pub is worth visiting. I’ll never forget the day I walked into that pub, ouch it hurt.

KyotoLefty (5906) - 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.
