Notes/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.

Bottle. Pours a red copper with a white head. Some lacing. Nose is fruity and hoppy. Taste is quite hoppy with a bitter finish. A brilliant hoppy ale that has a nice complexity but still very refreshing. A constant in my fridge.

473ml can from the Beer Store.

A - clear bubbly amber. Thick coat of white foam, dissipates slowly and leaves spotchy lacing.

S - light grapefruit and grassy hops, caramel and toasty grain, faint butterscotch.

T - caramel and toasted grains come out a lot stronger in the taste. Grapefruit and grassiness still present and mixing together with some spiciness. Faint buttery notes that seem to get more noticeable as the beer warms up.

M - medium/high carbonation, light body. Mildy bitter malty aftertaste.

O - Nice malt forward pale ale. I rarely have this beer in my fridge, but it's widely available on tap in the GTA area.
