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

LordBeamish (144) - Boozetown, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 8, 2006
bottle: Pours a medium, orangish amber colour with a frothy head. An interesting aroma with caramel and nutmeg leading the way. Lot’s of flavours in the mouth, perhaps too many. Caramel, spices, citrus etc. Finishes slightly bitter followed by a coffee/chocolate aftertaste. I could see this beer becoming an acquired taste but I think there’s too many other great ales out there to give this one too much time.

Much more assertive than their organoic lager. Good hops and bitterness combines with darker malts to give an excellent package.

mannika (140) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 2, 2007
Pours a clear reddish brown with a nice white head. Aroma is fairly hoppy, with a bit of an outdoorsy nature smell. Aroma also contains a small tinge of apricot. Flavor is a bit spicy, with fairly strong hops that were present in the aroma. Finishes a bit bitter, but in a quick, clean sort of way. Overall, a nice beer with some unique characteristics. One of my local favourites.

Tiger_08 (137) - Sarnia, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 7, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2012 May 6 2012. 341ml bottle pours a clear deep amber color with a finger of white head that settles down to tight cap producing nice lacing for a while. Aroma is toasted malts with some sweet maple and grassy hops. Taste is light caramel malty sweetness with some toasted malt notes and a grassy hop bitterness in the finish. Excellent carbonation leave a nice soft silky feeling on the tongue. Strong hop aftertaste leaves citrus mouthfeel. Great balance, great beer!

Bottle obtained in trade with Mr. Manning. Pours a beautiful dark amber colour with a thick tan head. Aroma of Hops which are also in the taste at just the right amount. There is also some sweet malt in the flavour. A very good beer which I must try and pickup the next time I am in Ontario.

Can from the beer store. I have had this before but it has been a while. Nice colour, not much hop, but malty and smooth for sure. A touch on the sweet side, which works from time to time. For sure the best thing @ the moment from Mill Street

I was at a crappy little dive the other night and noticed they carry tankhouse, so i ordered one. And it was dreadful! Sharp skunkiness, very unappealing texture, bad balance. I felt like i was drinking your average americen fizz. But I remember drinking alot of this about 5 years ago, and it was my favorite for a long time, so good marks for that. What happened? Maybe it was a skunky bottle? Maybe the expansion dropped the quality? I cant let this one bottle ruin it for me. Must try it on tap again.

On tap @ Ces’t what!. Orangay brown coloured body with minimal head that leaves slight lacing. Aromas of hops, sour, and malts. tatse is very hoppy, slight malt, and slight nuttiness on the finish. Bitter all the way through. not bad!
