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

Amber coloured body with orange highlights and a small off-white head. Aroma of pale malt and some american hops with little else. Light to Medium-bodied; Malty flavour with a nice hoppiness with floral qualities. Overall, a decent apa from canada! I got this pint on draught at a small pub in Toronto, Ontario and not in that stubby bottle pictured! I sampled this one on 09-April-2004 with my good friend Jon (JONR888710).

Boittle. This was not a stubby bottle, so I’m not sure if this is old or new. Nicely hopped aroma that is a bit spiced and a little piney. There are earthy malts in the nose as well. Amber-copper transparent color with a frothy, off-white head. Bitter, earthy, spicy hops to start, then turning very burnt and resinous to finish. A fair amount of roastiness is present. A bit dry and too burnt for my tastes. Ok stuff.

Bottle. Pours a deep amber color with average head. Scents of hops on the nose. Pleasently bitter throughout but not overwhelming mixed with a malty caramel sweetness. Nice piney hop presence as well, but perhaps a too thin body. Pretty good though. Bottle thanks to Blankboy.

Nekronos (3738) - Xalapa, MEXICO - SEP 11, 2006
Interesting flavour, It is strong, but the flavour is just hopy, the brown appearance is very nice and good suagr alike foam. THe smell is hopy too, but It is not a bitter. Good beer too.

VeloVampire (625) - Parkdale, Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 20, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2011 355 ml bottle - Pours a clear copper colour with a long lasting head. Aroma is all grapefruity hops, but a bit of dirtiness in there too. Body is robust and flavour is mainly hops upfront, though they are not overwhelming - nicely balanced by a solid earthy, slightly dirty malt backbone. Pretty good beer, but it has faded a bit since its early incarnation.

lewis13 (49) - Kokomo, Indiana, USA - APR 10, 2007
bottle thanks to blankboy...pours deep amber with decent sized white head, strong malty aroma...taste is suprisingly dry with a hop combo that I cannot put my finger on. Palate is rather full bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. Decent session beer with some attitude.

RagallachMC (631) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - APR 26, 2007
12oz bottle from robinboyer. Aroma: lightly toasted malt, orange zest, light pine and some subtle spiciness. Appearance: Dark amber/orange in color and slightly hazed. Light khaki head was full and foamy with good retention. Fair lacing. Flavor: Some toasted malt upfront with a bit of nuttiness and caramel. Light pine, orange, and spicy hops. Bitterness was smooth and refreshing. Clean finish. Palate: Medium bodied. Medium carbonation. Overall: A smooth and very drinkable APA. Could definitely spend an evening knocking these back.

LinusStick (2955) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 4, 2008
Via trade with matt7215. Thanks! A pretty standard APA. Aroma was all caramel malt. Pour was a decent dark amber with a one finger off white head. Taste was nice and malty in the front with a grassy hops aftertaste in the back that is very light and not bitter at all. This is a good beer, just not breaking any new ground.
