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

Another awesome ale from my trade with Hogtown Harry. Deep copper pour, with creamy 2-finger off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt, noble hops, citrus, and cabernet. The flavor was piney hoppy and citric, with a form caramel malt and some tropical fruits. Silky palate. This is a very good ale, an ale I’d gladly drink every day of the week.

UPDATED: DEC 5, 2006 Auburn with a bit of head, most of which disappeared. Aroma and taste are both quite complex. The taste is complex, spicy, bitter...perfect. Wonderfully smooth, bitter finish. The world’s finest ale.

dark amber in color; minimal head and aroma. strong initial caramel taste that trails off into fairly predominant hops and an almost dark chocolate finish. This was definitely a tasty surprise.

Bottle. Pours a darker reddish amber with a moderate pearl head; moderate carbonation. Aroma of hops; notes of grass and herbs. Taste is slightly bitter with citrus notes; warms to a slightly sweet maltiness, notes of bread. Finishes with a glassy hop bitterness with malt undertones. Medium-bodied. Very tasty; a great session beer.

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.

brownish amber colour. citrus hop and slightly melony aroma. good mouthfeel. for sure a hoppy beer, but there is a good firm malt flavour. somewhat berry-ish sweetness turning to bitter citrus in the finish. a great pale ale that's big and hoppy without being out of control.

Love that bottle. Pours a nice amber in color, fairly hazy, with slight head. Sweet malty aroma, syrupy sweet with a hint of citrus. Chewy mouthfeel. Lts of hops and malts going on here - toffee and caramel, orange and pineapple, very lively on the palate, sweet and sour in perfect harmony. A vey enjoyable brew. Well Done! Thanks to radiomgb for the brew!

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.

aerosol999 (113) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 20, 2006
Aroma: HOPS! malty, spicy, rich, inviting, reminds me of spice cake, honey and toffee Flavour: Big hop flvour, balanced bitterness equalled with strong malt character, crystal, biscuit, spicy hop flavour and a dry finish Palate: medium full bodied, chewy, prickly carbonation which lightens the beer and increases it’s complexity Appearance: copper-gold, low head with poor retention Overall: Great beer, lots of hops and malt, rich but manages to finish with a dry profile despite the residual stickiness it leaves on the lips. Very complex and well done. For my money, the best beer from Ontario in a long while
