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

Draft. Loved this beer. Bold aroma, hoppy at the front but well infused with sweet fruitiness.

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.

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.

MadRobin (2392) - Silver Spring, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Poured from 330ml bottle in Lake Louise, Alberta. Clear, reddish copper with a 1-finger khaki head and fair lacing. Aroma of caramel, orange and mild nuttiness. Taste of caramel, nuts, orange, toffee and a touch of spiciness. Medium body and medium carbonation with a smooth mouthfeel. A very malty ale with little distinction. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from bottle. Aroma of roasty nuts. Pours a clear red with white head. Has a medium bitter taste. Medium body, oily texture, average carbonation, and a bitter finish. A decent ale.

pictoman (777) - British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 17, 2015
Poured from the tap (note: ordered the Tankenstein which is 7.2% abv and around 70IBU (approx 25 higher than the tank house) but it listed it as an alias to the Tank House). Golden copper with off white head. Fruity candied caramel malt with resiny hops. Dryish finish.

Bamsen78 (4395) - 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.

Aroma of caramel, malt, and bread. Clear copper-orange colour. Sweet toffee front with notes of coffee, roasted malt, and honey - very rich flavour. Medium body with lively carbonation. Great beer - I would definitely buy qgaon.

w_adwersarz (348) - Cracow, POLAND - FEB 26, 2015
Barwa miedziana, bardzo ładna, zmętniona. Piana drobnopęcherzykowa, kremowa na czubeczku, dość szybko się rozpadła i pozostaje cienką warstewką do końca picia. Pozostawia całkiem przyjemny lacing. Aromat bardzo intensywny, karmel, rodzynki, orzechy prażone, lekko ostrawe, po prostu super. W smaku jest słodkie, słodowe, toffi, z niezłą kontrą w postaci skórki pomarańczowej. Półpełne z kremowym odczuciem. Wysycenie średnie. A goryczka na poziomie zadowalającym, przynajmniej mnie, z pomarańczowym finiszem

FROTHINGSLOSH (5515) - 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.
