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

Tap at the Brewpub. Near clear dark amber with a fluffy creamy head. Great lace. Fruity, malty nose. Flavour’s quite intense compared with the rather subtle aroma. Fruity, slightly jammy, quite nice but weak. Grapefruity bitterness. Floral notes. Crisp in the mouth, body firm.

Atom (1878) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 22, 2015
Can pours a clear Amber with a large khaki head. Caramel malt aroma with some dry earthy hops. Taste of caramel malt and tootsie rolls with an aggressive earthy hop bitterness on the finish. Not bad, especially if you like malt forward beers with a hop bite.

Tank House is one of those ales that despite tasting ok, I find it to be very similar to beers like Big Rock Traditional. It is a good beer, but I wouldn't add it to my top 20 beers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

luttonm (3414) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 7, 2015
Draft in Toronto. Lighter, decent malty ale. Clean, simple, tasty sipper. Medium hop, more malty body.

Clear caramel brown in appearance with almost no head. A hint of sweetness but ultimately a little boring.

Bamsen78 (4519) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2015
Draught @ the brewpub in Ottawa. Pours clear dark amber with small white head. Clear aroma of hops and malt, with citric and estery touches. Bitter, hoppy flavour with notes of malt and roast and some touches of yeast and needles. Bitter aftertaste. Decent but not as citric as I had expected.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5664) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2015
Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured an orange-caramel color with a large foamy orange-tan head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was faintly malty with notes of toffee, golden fruit and a touch of perfume. The flavor was bitey, bitter and perfumey. Long perfumey finish. Medium body. Meh.

lello4ever (294) - ITALY - JUN 10, 2015
Ambra carico con sottile schiuma. Aroma lievemente erbaceo. Ottimo sapore, col luppolo equilibrato e una leggera spaziatura. Molto beverina, frizzantezza giusta. Ottima apa.

473ml can, via tarde, thanks Asheft. Ambrée, col blanc. Arôme est malté, caramel moyen, léger bouquet houblonné noble. Palais est malté pâle, caramel, houblonné dans un style fleuri et fruité-citronné pour une fine amertume. Malté reste persistant avec une fine couche de grillé en fin de bouche.

Really nice beer. One of the better Ontario craft brews I’ve had. Brownish amber in colour and aroma is of hop and spice. Taste as well is a nice palate of hop, spice and malt.
