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

Excellent flavour and aroma. Served slightly cold or at room temperature. A good beer to savour.

Pours a reddish deep copper with small white head leaving a nice sticky lace. Aromas of citrus and a nice malty mixture of pale malts and caramel. Great full mouth feel with the up front malt flavours then hit by a dry citrus finish that works well together. Fantastic beer.

Very nicely balanced Pale Ale. Nice aroma, beautiful amber colour and excellent taste. Nice hoppy taste with smoth finish.

341ml bottle.
Pours a clear dark amber with a large fluffy tan head. Leaves lots of lacing. Earthy aroma with hints of citrus, toffee and hops. Medium body with a sIlky and slick mouth feel. Taste is roasty and malty. A little chocolate coffee finish as it warms. Slight bitterness to balance it out. Nice beer.

This has been my favourite beer as of late. The bottle is a classic old school slender beer bottle. It pours quite dark with an off white fluffy head with good lacing. Aroma reveals a nutty maltiness and a lot of hops. The first sip reveals complex malts, supporting claims of four or five differents malts or whatever they’re claiming. But also lots of hops. This is primarily a hoppy beer.

Deep copper w/ fluffy tan head. Nice fresh leafy, citrus nose, lots of body, and one of the best structured pale ales I've had in a while--hops and malt in perfect synchronicity (I know I'm misusing the word).

Great dark golden-red colour. Flavour has a nice smokiness, with a very present but not overwhelming bitterness. Very full-bodied and satisfying. The best Canadian beer I’ve tried so far. Highly Recommended!

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.

Fairly strong hoppy taste with a slightly bitter finish. Clear amber colour with very little head (341 ml bottle). Overall a very solid amber ale.

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.
