0.341 bottle. Clear, gold color and a small, white head. Aroma of citruses, pines, and grass. Taste is crisp, toast, citruses, some malts. A medium body, a slick texture, and an average carbonation. Finish is medium long and relatively sweet. Overall not a bad pale ale, but it is still just a pale ale. sulawang (1185) - - MAR 7, 2016
Visual: (seasonal sampler 6-pack). Pours reddish brown with no significant head, super thin hazy retention, singular micro streams all over.
Nose: brown sugar booze-laced toffee malts. (lvl-5)-pungency
Attack: crisp, thin entry
Mid-palate: toasted malt backbone, (lvl-4-sweetness), half-creamy, dry grassy hops, tongue prickly,
Finish: hints of vanilla, thin body residual barley malt finish.
Summary: Decent drinkability with okay complexity of malt, hops, and a touch of spice. It’s a bit thin in mouthfeel though. Bierdimpfe (640) - 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. bjakk (814) - Skagafjordur, ICELAND - JAN 18, 2016
Redbronze, clear with nice white head. Sweet meat and dry heath in the aroma. Malt, burned sugar. With sweet burned bitterness in the aftertadte ___Steve___ (71) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 14, 2016
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!

(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. BVery (11216) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - DEC 27, 2015
Tall can. Mostly clear amber pour with a minor head. Toffee, some earthy, hops are a bit stale and dead in this. Damn. NeilinSeattle (32) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 23, 2015
Fairly standard quaffable ale. Not offensive in any way. Mostly harmless. That kind of thing. yourilevesque (1829) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 18, 2015
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 (684) - 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
