American Pale Ale (APA) |  5.20% ABV

Availability: Year-round

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.

Appearance: Rich coppery amber hue, fluffy off-white head with good retention.

Smell: Clean, mild scent of fruit, spices, malts and hops.

Taste: Black pepper and lots of spiciness, particularly up front. Richly malty, and some nice fruity notes. Bitterness starts out medium-strong and becomes quite assertive in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Quite crisp, medium-bodied and smooth.

Overall: Very good. Nothing jumps out at me as a wow factor, but this is certainly an above average beer.

2.6/5  rDev -30.7%

Served on tap in a pint glass.

1-finger head, with a copper-red, amber appearance.

A mild, bready scent present over the head.

Taste: I found my first sips to be bitter for an amber (based on what I like and am used to). Regretfully, I did a beeradvocate search for this beer only after I ordered, so I was disappointed to find that I ordered a Pale Ale, which is not a beer style that I particularly like. (The menu said "Tankhouse Amber". If it had said "Tankhouse Ale", I would not have ordered it.) In this particular case, I found the flavour unsurprising, but I'm somewhat biased against Pale Ales.

Overall, decent for the style, I suppose, but I don't like Pale Ales, so I can't rate this too highly.
