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

Via HogTownHarry. The beer pours to a clean dark orange caramelly body with a nice lasting rocky white head and good lacing. The aroma is extremely hoppy and malty. Grapefruit, apricots, oatmeal raisin cookies, light gingerbread. Very nice aroma. The flavor starts out hoppier and finishes extremely malty. Muddled citrus morphs into crystal malt oatmeal raisin cookies. Pretty decent. The palate is decent and middle of the road. Very pleasing alternative APA. Nicely malty!

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2008 bottle: Pours a dark copper with a medium off white head creamy head. Aroma is almost reminiscent of oatmeal-raisin cookies with a strong fruity hop Flavour is medium hopped (again fruity) and full bodied. My first Mill St. brew and it was very nice.

Draught half-pint at Pub Italia in Ontario in the company of the estimable CapFlu. Clear amber with little head and a touch of lacing....light citrus and apricot aroma, hoppy without being overly acidic, nice caramel notes come on strongly as it warms....orangy citric body is faintly acidic, very fruity and lightly tart, moderately bitter and eminently well-constructed with low to medium peppy carbonation. Nothing spectacular but a pleasant summer quaff.

diabel (1680) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - AUG 9, 2006
Bottle Clear, amber body. Off-white, large, lasting, creamy head. Intense aroma of hops with some liquor added. Lightly sweet, moderately bitter initial flavour. Heavily bitter, lightly sweet finish. Quite interesting, but has a little bit flawness. Still quite complex. Very soft mouthfeel.

LordBeamish (144) - Boozetown, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 8, 2006
bottle: Pours a medium, orangish amber colour with a frothy head. An interesting aroma with caramel and nutmeg leading the way. Lots of flavours in the mouth, perhaps too many. Caramel, spices, citrus etc. Finishes slightly bitter followed by a coffee/chocolate aftertaste. I could see this beer becoming an acquired taste but I think theres too many other great ales out there to give this one too much time.

KingofCastle (208) - London, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 7, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2007 bottle: The bottle reads that they use a staggering amount of hops and different malts to create a fiery, spicey pale ale. Well, it is spicy & has tonnes of flavour, but it is almost too hoppy and the malts dont balance it out. Granted the IPA is hard to do right. I suggest the Wells IPA, way smootther & flavour that actually works together. This is complex all right but that doesnt mean it is good. Feels bitter/sharp in the mouth and finishes that way too: flavours just dont blend & I smell & taste something very distinct like citrus or pineapple which is way too strong. Reminds me of a true spice ale or a red/copper ale, but there are better ones out there. Way too much hype here. Part of the unfortunate micro-brew trend to combat blah-tasting macro brews with overly flavourful beers you cant drink or just dont bind into 1 smooth flavour.

Bottle from Len, Thanks! Pours out a brown yellow color with a white head. Smell is hoppy and sweet, some notes of pine and grapefruit. Taste is also hoppy, goes down very smooth and easy to drink. Pretty good Candaian beer if you ask me. Dunno if its better than their porter, but its really good. Thanks man

Great dark golden-red colour. Flavour has a nice smokiness, with a very present but not overwhelming bitterness. Very full-bodied and satisfying. The best Canadian beer Ive tried so far. Highly Recommended!
