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

UPDATED: JUN 25, 2010 Bottle, thanks to Macadem for sharing. Pours a medium reddish-amber, good head, decent lacing. Nose is bright and hoppy, plenty of citrus and leaf, as well as caramel. Palate is fresh and nippy; balanced complex and infinitely sessionable. Becoming one of my go-to beers.

Pours a dark copper/caramel colour. Decent head. Above average lacing. Aromas are big sweet caramel malts. Tastes are malts, bit of molasses, a smidgen of nuttiness, a touch of red fruit peels. Overall, I wasn’t expecting much and I have to say this one surpassed my expectations. Not a bad beer at all.

For a pale, incredibly malty. And particularly smooth considering it is an ale. Nice! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at my uncle’s place. It pours a crystal clear golden brown with a big malty aroma, nutty cocoa. The taste is nice and clean maltiness with a little tangy citrus. Pretty good.

Pours a dark copper with fluffy off white head, and the aroma has notes of citrus, spice, roasted malts, toffee, and caramel. Tasting notes include citrus and tropical fruits from the Cascade hops, and nice malty notes of roasted barley, and a slight bitter finish. This is not a bad APA at all! I was pleasantly surprised.

Bottle from LCBO. Pours dark amber with a slightly off white head. Light toffee, light bread aroma. Medium body, medium carbonation. I’ve had this numerous times and its possibly better on tap. There’s caramel, lemon, a little tangerine, toast... It’s easy drinking. Nice.

Tapped at the I think Mill Creek pub in Orangeville/Canada. Floral hops, sweet aroma. The aroma reminds me of an air refresher used for restrooms. Color copper dark, head creamy and stable, kept a 4mm level. Taste a balance of malt and hops, malt major. Caramel malt a bit. Really creamy in taste. Full bodied. Overall a great ale!

This is one of my favorites. This pours a beautiful copper color with a modest head and nice lacing. Nice hoppy aroma. Complex palate. Long finish. Delicious. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
