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

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 I’ve tried so far. Highly Recommended!

Pours a clear reddish brown with a nice white head. Aroma is fairly hoppy, with a bit of an outdoorsy nature smell. Aroma also contains a small tinge of apricot. Flavor is a bit spicy, with fairly strong hops that were present in the aroma. Finishes a bit bitter, but in a quick, clean sort of way. Overall, a nice beer with some unique characteristics. One of my local favourites.

Fairly strong hoppy taste with a slightly bitter finish. Clear amber colour with very little head (341 ml bottle). Overall a very solid amber ale.

A beer with bite! There’s a lot of hops crammed into Tankhouse and I find too few beers have that kind of a flavourful punch to them. A repeater, for sure.

I tried this beer on May 13, 2008 at the "Elephant and Castle" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer was poured a translucent reddish-brown colour with a half-inch creamy tan coloured head. The aroma was a combination or raosted malt, and hops. The mouthfeel was medium bodied, with mild carbonation. The flavour was all about the hops. A nice bitter citrusy tang and a very good beer.

Yummy! Great aroma, great taste, coffee finish. Almost perfumed. Love this beer though it’s rather difficult to find at most bars. My Fave.

To say this beer is flavorful is a gross understatement! This brew is full of flavors and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The spices come on really strong at first along with the hops, and maple. The strong front can be deceiving at first, but this beer really grows on you as you drink it. It has a semi-light amber color; it looks like maple syrup. I see myself buying a 6 pack of this brew every now and again for a treat. A very decent beer.

Very nice deep red, moderate lasting head. As always, a wonderful aroma of Cascade hop. Perfect amount of citrus and floral smell. Taste is just the right combination of bitter, but not stupidly so, and good malty sweetness. Palate is a nice dryish bitter, but perhaps could be a bit more solid overall. Still, as I tell everyone who asks me, this is the beer that everyone should be drinking, all the time, everywhere.

Solid favourite from Mill Street. Can be a bit bitter for some, but hardly overwhelming. Nice spice to it. A winner from Toronto.

Tankhouse is delicious. This rating is well earned. One of only two I like from Mill Street, but really enjoy this.
