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

Bottled. Strong and sweet aroma. Deep copper hue with no head. Sweet start which leads into a long bitter and hoppy finish. Very good.

La cerveza presenta un color intenso ámbar oscuro y translúcido con aromas de maltas, caramelo, nueces y frutas confitadas con ligero bouquet herbal. Es una ale muy fresca en boca y con sabores maltosos, presentando un amargor intenso que se refleja en su gran final seco.

Tap at Toronto airport brewpub. Great color and head is off white and thin yet lingers. Nose is hop and medium malt. Body is usual ale dry and fullness. Malta really shine thru the hop bite and overpower it. A bit too sweet I think but would do again.

Je suis OBSÉDÉ par cette bière, elle couve malicieusement mes rêves de douce ivresse de sa longue chevelure rousse, elle m'agace l'imagination a chaque coup de chaleur (comme aujourd'hui en cette canicule post-apocalyptique)...et en plus, elle sait s'adapter en temps froid et se faire aussi désirable. C'est simple, la Tankhouse est la succube la plus succulente qui soit!! Pour les amateurs de bière rousse ou ambré, c'est la bière de soif par excellence: facile a boire sans pour autant en perdre sa part de mystère et sa complexité finement voilé. Un classique de la littérature brassicole, la Thankhouse offre du caramel avec retenu, des note fumée et confite, un petit mordant malté et houblonné, une rondeur sans pareille et une généreuse mousse pour coiffée le tout, et ce, encore une fois, a un prix très abordable. Attention, le mariage n'est pas loin et risque de jamais être ennuyant avec une bière pareille!

Bottle at taste, Oakville Ontario. Darrk brown with an off white head. Earthy citric aroma. Marmalade and toffee malt flavour. More like a premium bitter than an APA. Lacking zing, a bit ho-hum.

I used to quite like this beer, but I get the distinct sense that it isn’t the same beer since InBev took over. It seems much sweeter and blander than I remember. They must be up to their usual tricks of screwing with a recipe, so that it’s a more mainstream beer to compete directly with Rickards Red.

Use to be one of the few beers I could get at a lot pubs that mostly sold macro beers, however there is a lot more craft beers you can get in Toronto now today. Now the brewery was purchased by InBev. Ok beer. Good for the style of beer, malty taste, but not my favourite.

Got this one through the holiday 6-pack. Discovering new beers, yet this one is plain.

Syrupy red, clear, frothy. Aroma is sweet and malty, slightly oaky. Taste is fairly malt-forward, caramel and almond, lots of cherry flavour. Hop flavour is pretty restrained for an APA. Pleasant, but a bit weaker than I remember. I prefer a higher hop-to-malt balance, but if you’re the opposite, then this is a good choice. Good intro pale ale, definitely better than nearly any macro product, but not really competitive among the better Ontario breweries.

Draft. Love this beer, very favourable and easy to drink. Good for all seasons and goes well with pub food.

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