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

Light brown in colour, small creamy head. Aroma of sweet malt and some hops. Tastes like an IPA - very hoppy indeed! Pale & crystal malts, some slight roastiness in there, too. Wonderful hoppy aftertaste - 5 hops varieties? Fuggles must be in there somewhere... Appropriate body with decent carbonation. Very nice beer, reminds me of Phillips Amnesiac. Many thanks to Robin for the trade!

Pours a dynamic reddish copper with a dense off-white head with good carbonation. The aroma has musty caramel malt and some pale malt. There are also some spice hops noticed, but they are muted by all the malt. Medium body with a velvety feel at first then some semi-soft carbonation that is on the crisp side. The flavor starts with some somewhat dark malt and spiced hops with pine. the finish has mainly spicy and woody hops with some apparent malt. Overall a nice APA. Big thanks to radiomgb for sending this my way.

Bottle with thanks to RagallachMC. Clear reddish orange with a small head. Aroma of piney and spicy hops along with caramel and roasted grains. Moderately bitter with spicy, sweet toasted grains and earth. Bitter finish. Unique and very nice.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2012 Bottle. This is my favourite pale ale. Great colour and very complex. Might overwhelm novice beer drinkers but is a nice treat when you need something different///////////////////////all this beer is, is a nice sessionable ontario pale ale, which is basically an ESB malt bill with C hops. it pretty much define the craft beer scene in ontario, as sad as that is

lowg (148) - Scarborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 18, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2008 Bottle from six pack. Finally had the last one after a few weeks and this will be the one rate with. Pours dark copper, with beige head that fades but leaves pretty good lacing. Aroma is nice and spicy. Flavour is well balanced and very clean. The finish is very nice with just the right amount of spice for my liking. The bitterness lingers very neatly. Delicious. **Re-rate: May 20th 2008 - Another six pack: much better than I remember. Knocked it up a few more points**

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.

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.

This was my go-to weekend beer while living in Toronto. Is great on tap, and even better on cask (Volo Cask Days). Pours copper-red in colour with a decent amount of head. There is an assertive amount of hops and nice spicyness that makes the beer great. The beer has a very clean finish and is very, very drinkable. Please export to Switzerland!

BINGEBOT (240) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 4, 2007
Nice reddish colour, very hoppy and spicy in scent, not sweet and not bitter; just right. The flavour is exactly the same, hopping and spicy. Very unique and very good. One of my favourite and most consistent beers.

sinkhole (263) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 23, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2007 Pours copper red. Strong aromas of hops and spices with more subtle hints of yeast/rice. Sweet hop flavours overpowered by spice mixture IMO. Long lasting bitter flavours.
