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

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

Rating #100!

Pours deep rusty reddish brown. Auburn? Medium creamy head. Aroma is lush with citrusy hops and chocolate roasted malts. Great balance -- the hops slightly dominate the malts in the aroma, which suits my liking.

Flavour hits with caramel and chocolate before hops quickly become apparent and take over. Bittersweet effect exists. Again, the balance is great. Medium body. .Aftertaste is coffee, smoke/ash and hops. Maybe a little too much sweetness from the malts. This is a great session beer.

from bottle, inviting aroma, a little malt hint of fruit. pleasantly bitter flavour, lingering hoppiness after a few mouthfuls, dry. one to keep in mind if i see it on tap.

I poured this from bottle, copper color, med head. Floral smell to it, malty and hoppy, distinct so far to other beers, not sure if I get a coffee taste out of it almost like mocha but distinct nonetheless, this in not bad. Has a bitter ending to it, must be the hops. I like it.

Can from the beer store. I have had this before but it has been a while. Nice colour, not much hop, but malty and smooth for sure. A touch on the sweet side, which works from time to time. For sure the best thing @ the moment from Mill Street

Mill Street's best, IMO. Creamy, complex flavours, attractive copper colour. Elements of fruits, hops and nuts. Very unique character and thoroughly enjoyable.

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2005 Undoubtedly the best regularly available beer brewed by Mill Street, which is high praise indeed. It is a deep, rich colour that is darker than your average pale ale, and packs a punch with a multitude of flavours, which are almost citrus-like, with cloves and other spice. Im probably a bit biased because I have the Tankhouse on draft in my house, so its the run-of-the-mill (no pun intended) beer around here. But its an excellent beer by any measure, and certainly worthy to have on tap.
