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

Aroma is one of beerís most complex features. Aroma is propelled by lively CO2 and dampened by pillowy heads - especially nitrogen foam. Click on a term below to add it to your tasting notes.

Bottle to nonic glass, the beer pours a transparent red-amber with not much head. The aroma is odd....spices, pez candy, licorice....strange stuff. Taste is typical of a red ale with the balance more toward hop than malt with some spice in the background. The palate is ok, watery and not very complex but quite refreshing....carb is decent too. Overall...Iíve had worse but...not my thing. Boring really.

Itís been a while since my masochism has led me to try a Mill Street offering, so I thought why not try out their flagship beer? Itís got solid ratings, how bad can it be? Well, as usual itís not so much that itís a bad beer, itís just nothing like what they claim it to be, which drinks me flippin bonkers. This is a solid, tasty AMBER ALE, thatís it. Hops are most certainly not the "most dominant character". I get more Cascade aroma out of Keithís Hops series. Thereís no "assertive hop flavour, aroma and bitterness"; thereís a hint of the two former, and a modicum of the latter. And if the brewmaster developed this recipe 20 years ago and itís still his favourite, I think Iím beginning to understand why Iím so routinely underwhelmed by these guys. Note: my rating is based on what this beer CLAIMS to be. If it called itself an Amber, or even an Altbier, or a friggin EPA, Iíd probably give it a 3ish. But since this beer is a big fat phony, as most of their beers seem to be, Iím giving it a 2.5. But I SHOULD give it a damn 0.

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

Pours a dark copper/caramel colour. Decent head. Above average lacing. Aromas are big sweet caramel malts. Tastes are malts, bit of molasses, a smidgen of nuttiness, a touch of red fruit peels. Overall, I wasnít expecting much and I have to say this one surpassed my expectations. Not a bad beer at all.

For a pale, incredibly malty. And particularly smooth considering it is an ale. Nice! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at my uncleís place. It pours a crystal clear golden brown with a big malty aroma, nutty cocoa. The taste is nice and clean maltiness with a little tangy citrus. Pretty good.
