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

A promising start on the aroma front this beer sadly falls away when your lips and nose are struck by the carbonation which is way to intense and strikes me as a mask for the beer’s shortcomings. A shame as its other elements are very encouraging indeed.

UPDATED: MAY 19, 2016 Toffee nose, copper-brown clear color with a wisp of a rim. Sweet citrus and toffee taste with rye malt and a tinge of hop and grapefruit on the palate. Finely made ale.

Bière orangée cuivrée, limpide, effervescence moyenne-faible, et surmontée d’un col beige pas tellement large, mais bien dense et mousseux, presque cotonneux, qui se réduit tranquillement en laissant une belle dentelle sur les parois du verre. Arômes de pain un peu grillé, céréale sucrée et beaucoup de sucre d’orge avec un peu de réglisse rouge et de caramel. Derrière ce sucre dominant, on décèle les subtils effluves d’un houblon qui semble principalement floral et poivré. Par moment, les odeurs de la bière semble bien pâteuse (pâte à pain, levure à pain…), et ça fait aussi maïs et grain brut peu raffiné... Nez ordinaire, intensité acceptable, mais complexité plutôt faible… En bouche, pétillement élevé sur la langue, onctuosité moyenne au palais. Au goût, entrée maltée de pain grillé et grain rôti avec un sucré beaucoup plus retenue qu’au nez, ce qui est une excellente chose. Nuance de sucre d’orge et de caramel. Aussi, saveur un peu de malt fumé, tourbe, noisette… ça fait beaucoup plus céréalier qu’au nez, et, heureusement, beaucoup plus travaillé. Présence également en bouche d’un houblon principalement floral aux notes aussi un peu herbacées et poivrées. Finale à l’amertume moyennement élevée. Très bonne intégration des différentes saveurs entre elle, complexité en bouche bien élevée (surtout pour le style!), intensité qui y est également bien élevée. Alors qu’au nez je croyais avoir affaire à une rousse de style macro, je me suis retrouver avec une APA fort bien réussi en bouche. Bien bonne bière!

341ml bottle from LCBO bought a while ago by wife. Aroma: caramel, old cereals, medicinal notes as it warms up. App: clear copper reddish, medium frothy off white head, little retention, good lacing. Taste and palate: medium body, medium sweetness, more caramel in mouth, moderate carbonation, moderate bitter finish. Overall: not so good but way better than expected. A sweet, sticky ale. As the expression says well: a swill a day keeps the doctor away. Dp.

Pours a clear copper with a small offwhite head that leaves some lacing. Nose is of caramel, pine and something that could be alcohol (that would be strange, coming from a 5% ABV brew) but that I will call hop oils for now. Taste is moderately bitter and offers mostly caramel again. Body is light, carbonation moderate and mouthfeel is watery. It was alright overall but really oldschool and a bit watered down. Way too much caramel.

Can (473 ml), shared. Clear golden with a small white head leaving little lacing. Aroma is bland with caramel notes, mild spiciness and herbal notes. Taste is also rather boring with caramel, mild spiciness, herbal notes and mild bitterness. Medium body, but somewhat weak and watery. Medium carbonation. Herbal and mildly earthy-mineral finish. Short aftertaste. Not bad, rather easy drinking but bland and boring.

Nouveauté sur nos tablettes au Québec. Bière rousse aux reflets acajou, exhaussée d’une mousse généreuse. Nez intéressant de malt grillé avec des noisettes. En bouche, c’est goûteux, riche, la texture est parfaite : notes de malt, de houblons, de noisettes, de caramel. C’est complexe et agréable. Au-delà de mes attentes. Cheers!
