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

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2010 The smell is actually quite nice, a medium amount of dark malts and lots and lots of hops, I can really pick out the cascade, because Im a cascade whore... lots of hops in the aroma anyways. Its great! A very even not-quite dark brown, little head with some lacing, pretty boring to watch. Very muted taste initially, the malt and then the hops come on late in the tasting. A bit fizzy on the palate, you really get a taste of the yeast after the hop bitterness wears but also a bit plain, a bit too easy. A lot nicer than I expected, but still room for a bit more malt and different hops on the tounge Id say. Almost an IPA, with just a bit of brown ale added in instead of high ABV to balance the flavours. A bit un-traditional?

Thanks to Jester for this beer. Pours deep amber with a lazy white head. Aroma is mild floral hopes and a bit of sweet malt. Flavor sweet and citrus a good balance of citrus hops and a sweet malt. A pretty good beer

This dark copper brew was topped by a thin bubbly head that left webs of sticky lace on the sides of my pint glass. Grapefruit and other citric hop aromas hit the nose first, followed by caramel malt and a bit of chocolate. The pleasant smell was offset a bit by a bit of sour yeast not sure how that ended up in the mix. Dry, bitter hops briefly dominated the flavour up front, but malt makes its presence felt. Still, this isnt what youd call a balanced brew: theres a lot going on and there are some spicy flavours that add to the complexity and enhance the overall experience. The carbonation was lively on the palate and the finish was dry with just a bit of stickiness nothing to complain about.

hoppy aroma, some caramel, a slightly murky bronze color, lots of malts up front, hops at the back, with a slightly chocolate finish.. nice smooth body, and a mildly sweet finish. more malt than most american pales, and the chocolate was a pleasant surprise. thanks to radiomgb for this from a long time ago.

Wow for a Canadian beer I didnt expect much. Tons of aroma, of malt and spice. Nice thick head that lingered over a sienna coloured pour that was disapointingly clear. Very full taste, very malty with a good amount of spice. Some pale late like bitterness that I could do without (cascade hops?). This really blew away my expectations. There is a bitter bitting aftertaste that grows as the beer continues that is less than pleasant. At the end it stuck unpleasantly on the tongue way to long. The aftertaste killed this one, I was really enjoying it until then.

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2006 Thanks to Doug & Mike for the bottle. Deep copper, slightly off-white head w. nice lacing. Nose is piney hops, some citrus, some fruits, pepper and a bit of toasted malt. Flavor is grapefruit rind, peppery iced tea, very bitter. Crystal malt butterscotch. Orangey piney finish. Quite nice.

Goodeone (39) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 16, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2007 Amber colour with a foamy head. The spices (pepper) are very apparent in the aroma and will awaken the senses for what’s to come. A spicy beer with a pepper aftertaste that disipates quickly in a forgiving manner. A good beer overall, but not quite my taste for an everyday beer.

Redish copper colour. Clarity is good along with the head development. Not much aroma to speak of - little hint of citrus. Taste- malt bill is good, but the hops taste stale. Grassy and muddy hops- not so good. Mouthfeel is ok and finsih is dry from the hops. Easy enough to drink but the flavour would get pretty tiring after a couple. Not a bad effort from a canadian brewer.
