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

Not much aroma, but nice hoppy flavour. Tasted a 5 oz. sample draft pour. No head to speak of on a sample this size.

Pours a fiery red with a lingering beige coloured head. Excellent spicy taste with a hint of orange and pine. Bitter finish leaves you wanting more. One of the finest Toronto-brewed beers around.

I liked this ale quite a bit. There was something strange about the after-taste, and then a friend had some with me and said something that hit me ... the after taste is like "Thrills" gum ... has anyone tried this gum (I know it was available in Toronto in the 70’s, not sure if it still it). I liked the after-taste, but it is definitley for a more seasoned pallet.

Draft. Loved this beer. Bold aroma, hoppy at the front but well infused with sweet fruitiness.

To say this beer is flavorful is a gross understatement! This brew is full of flavors and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The spices come on really strong at first along with the hops, and maple. The strong front can be deceiving at first, but this beer really grows on you as you drink it. It has a semi-light amber color; it looks like maple syrup. I see myself buying a 6 pack of this brew every now and again for a treat. A very decent beer.

Spicy and hoppy. Like a rabbit crossed with a jalepeno. Or a Frog vindaloo. Only in a bottle.

My stand-by session beer. This is a great tasting pale ale. Fairly hoppy for a main-stream beer, with a good level of malty goodness to balance it out. For a widely available, commercially friendly, mainstream beer... you can’t expect much more. About as flavourful as a light beer can be. Solid.

Nice rich amber pour with a modest creamy head. Nose is all spice with some toasty notes. Spice follows in the taste along with sweet baked bread and a hint of cocoa. Very balanced - pleasantly surprised and have made one of my everyday beers.

A beer with bite! There’s a lot of hops crammed into Tankhouse and I find too few beers have that kind of a flavourful punch to them. A repeater, for sure.

meh... too much hype for a sub par beer. looks nice, pours well and even smells good, but it’s a bit too hoppy for my pallete. not indicitave of other Mill St. brews though.
