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

Eructoblaster (4005) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 22, 2006
Bottle. Limpid amber body with average carbonation and a good lasting off-white foamy head. Nice hoppy aroma with spicy and roasty notes. Its sharp hoppy taste ends with a long bitter finish. Very good!

Pours a nice amber colour with ephemeral head. Excellent yeasty smell - taste is quite hoppy and bitter. A nice dry finish.

StompBrockmore (316) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 9, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2007 355ml bottle/draught - I can drink a lot of this stuff - one of the best beers brewed here in Toronto, and easily my favourite of the Mill St. line. Pours a deep copper red with a medium tan head on top. Aroma is a wonderful smack of hops, with a huge dose of roasted malt. Spicy, ultra-hoppy flavour follows, but not over-the-top by any means. Theres a lot of malt in there to balance the hop bomb it otherwise would have been. Instead it is floral, earthy, spicy, with some roasted flavours and perhaps a trace of caramel. A very fine beer. Grassy, earthy hops all the way through, and right into the finish. Tastes like drinking iron-rich blood.

DarkElf (3061) - La Jolla, California, USA - JUL 2, 2006
(341 ml bottle: Obtained 24-Mar-06 in trade with blankboy, thanks Paul!) Now heres an eyebrow raiser! Very, very toasty and malty with a slightly roasty character. Tastes a bit like fresh-roasted coffee too, but its truly only a hint rather than a full-blown coffee flavor. Bitterness is light to medium, but hops isnt exactly a no-show in this beer. Huge amounts of toast in the nose is just wonderfully aromatic and enjoyable. Light to medium bodied with a slight dusty character to the mouthfeel, but despite the very malty flavor, the gently carbonated beer is still fairly clean and easy to drink. Bright amber in color and pretty darn-near clear in appearance. The off-white and fairly bubbly head rises to less than a half-inch and fades to a thick ring after a few minutes. Some spiderweb lacing is left on the glass. Overall, I never expected such a toasty beer, and Ive savored every sip. Totally delicious.

frink (467) - coquitlam, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 24, 2006
Raidiant copper pour with a medium thick head. Fruity hop nose. Fresh hop taste with a good malty balance. About five more of these would have been perfect.

henrikb (1262) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 17, 2006
Clear amber-cobber body, very creamy head, some laces; Very big pleasant nose, comes out as soon as the bottle is opened, moderately hopped nose with sweet grapefruit and warmer notes like freshly baked white bread; Soft body, soft carbonation, a bit watery textured body; Very pleasant finish with a quite dry bitterness and a peanut like aroma. Incredibly pleasant beer brought to me radiomgb.

JorisPPattyn (9668) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JUN 10, 2006
Foxy amber; good off-white creamy head. Gorgeous hoppy-grapey nose, dry, hay. Dry-bitterish with quite some sweetness underneath. Retronasal fully hoppy (USA hops). Medium bodied, certain slickness. Very good American amber ale. Not a hopmonster, but a fine well-hopped beer, with plenty to tell you. Thanks, TW.

Pours a fiery red with a lingering beige coloured head. Excellent spicy taste with a hint of orange and pine. Bitter finish leaves you wanting more. One of the finest Toronto-brewed beers around.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 2, 2006
On draft at Volo. Arrived a nice clear amber with a long lasting beige head that left good lacing. Aroma of toasty malts with a bit of caramel, floral notes and light citrus in the hops. English style toasty maltiness and sweetness, with a balancing of herbal and floral hops with a hint of pine in the finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Pretty good.
