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

Bottled. Strong and sweet aroma. Deep copper hue with no head. Sweet start which leads into a long bitter and hoppy finish. Very good.

Bierdimpfe (82) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 28, 2016
Slightly hazy dark amber, almost copper color, beige 1 finger head, lasting 2 minutes, with good legs and tons of activity. Sweet aromas of nutty toffee and bitter spices. Inviting smell. Very sour toasty citrus flavors. Heavily spicy with a thick hoppy feel. Medium body with subtle carbonation, strong finish with a long bitter smoky mouth coat and a dry end. Overall : Packed with flavors, but slightly off in freshness and not finding the bitterness pleasing.

The aroma has a wet character, fresh hops, some cloves and spice with subtle hints of banana bread. Clear, filtered lacquer brown colour. Tight off white stable head. Nutty, bitter upfront lessened by a following milk chocolate bitterness. Total mouth fulfilling and complex flavour, with a lingering after taste on the back of the tongue. It’s my job to explain the experience of drinking the ale and if I could opine for a second, and comment not just on the experience but also the enjoyment of the ale I must say Tank house Ale is one of my all time favourite beers. Sessionable, confident, complex and so very delicious!

neongolden (1010) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 13, 2016
(On tap at Madison Ave Pub, Toronto, Jan 12 2016) Pours clear dark brownish amber with an off white head and no lace. Aroma is sweet with caramel, toffee, some earthy and kind of piney hops with just a bit of citrus fruitiness. Flavour mimics nose with lots of toffee sweetness to the malt, hops are pine, resin and earth dominated, a little bit of toast too. Some grapefruit and floral notes peek into the finish, which is medium-dry thanks to some bittering. Aftertaste has some grainy bread. Average mouthfeel, a bit sticky, carbonation is above average. Not bad as far as a malty pale ale goes, nothing really surprising here. A standby at places with mediocre tap selections.

Tall can. Mostly clear amber pour with a minor head. Toffee, some earthy, hops are a bit stale and dead in this. Damn.

Fairly standard quaffable ale. Not offensive in any way. Mostly harmless. That kind of thing.

Merci à François Moisan pour le partage (et pour le souper!). Bière sans doute excellente sur une terrasse pendant la saison estivale, cette bière d’apéro est rouge et paraît glorieuse! Mousse abondante, mais effervescence inexistante dans mon verre, comme bien des bières de nos voisins de l’ouest. Nez ponctué par de jolis malts grillés sans torréfaction mais avec toute la fraîcheur houblonnée à laquelle on s’attend d’une bière de cette couleur. Texture lisse, saveurs douces, je note principalement un grain léger. Le grain et la moisson sont principalement responsables de ces saveurs florales et printanières. Amertume courte, facile à boire, bien plaisante en début de marathon.

Gluepot (295) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 7, 2015
A tasty and complex IPA packing a significant taste profile at a relatively low ABV level. A dark caramel-coloured body delivers a roasted malt and earthy hop beer that is both refreshing and challenging. Hops range from earthy to citrus. The malt is bready with toffee and a touch of spice. Well crafted

En fût au Brouepub d’Ottawa en sptembre 2014. Assez léger. Aucune odeur, les houblons sortent à peine. Bonne bière de soif par exemple. Se rapproche beaucoup de ce les brasseurs industrielles peuvent nous offrir.

Fat @ Brewpub, Toronto. Dofter av malt, citrus och karamell. Smakinslag av malt, karamell, citrus och gräs. Avslutas fruktigt, medelbeska. En bra APA.
