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 beer’s 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.

Barwa miedziana, bardzo ładna, zmętniona. Piana drobnopęcherzykowa, kremowa na czubeczku, dość szybko się rozpadła i pozostaje cienką warstewką do końca picia. Pozostawia całkiem przyjemny lacing. Aromat bardzo intensywny, karmel, rodzynki, orzechy prażone, lekko ostrawe, po prostu super. W smaku jest słodkie, słodowe, toffi, z niezłą kontrą w postaci skórki pomarańczowej. Półpełne z kremowym odczuciem. Wysycenie średnie. A goryczka na poziomie zadowalającym, przynajmniej mnie, z pomarańczowym finiszem

MadRobin (2225) - Silver Spring, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Poured from 330ml bottle in Lake Louise, Alberta. Clear, reddish copper with a 1-finger khaki head and fair lacing. Aroma of caramel, orange and mild nuttiness. Taste of caramel, nuts, orange, toffee and a touch of spiciness. Medium body and medium carbonation with a smooth mouthfeel. A very malty ale with little distinction. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pictoman (709) - British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 17, 2015
Poured from the tap (note: ordered the Tankenstein which is 7.2% abv and around 70IBU (approx 25 higher than the tank house) but it listed it as an alias to the Tank House). Golden copper with off white head. Fruity candied caramel malt with resiny hops. Dryish finish.

12oz bottle into an English pint. Pours a clear reddish-amber, with light head, some lacing. Nose of caramel, light spiciness; caramel malt richness, some hop and a pleasant, bitter finish. Malty and a bit creamy. Quite good.

shrubber85 (8323) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - FEB 3, 2015
Bottle. Milky orange caramel malt and light orange peel aroma. Sweet creamy orange caramel malt and lightly bitter orange peel flavor. Smooth body. Not a typical APA - very malty. Pleasant.

gregorymconway (206) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 11, 2015
Transparent copper/amber body. Malty, some caramel and toffee, but also a big hop presense. Reminiscent of a really hoppy vienna, or a real west coast APA.
