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

DuffMan (6802) - 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 (6603) - 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.

mcberko (6568) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 15, 2012
Few ounce sample from bottle, pours a golden orange with a small white head. Aroma and flavour of floral hops, citrus and hay - the floral hops are the most prominent flavour. Fairly standard but solid.

phaleslu (6555) - 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.

KyotoLefty (6505) - 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.

Radek Kliber (6495) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUN 14, 2003
UPDATED: APR 29, 2007 Bottle 341 ml
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.

5000 (6300) - 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!

Svesse (6163) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2007
(Bottle, Stockholm Beer Festival, 29 Sep 2007) Reddish amber colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, fruity, slightly grainy nose with notes of dark fruit. Malty, fruity taste with dried fruit and balanced amounts of citrussy hops in the finish. Nice balance. Hardly exciting, but still quite nice.
