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.

Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass.

Deep copper amber color, dark but very crystal clear to see through with a nice amber crystal dark color. Head is light off tan to white, four fingers tall and souffle like retention. Nice looking brew.

Notes of biscuit and toast with a faint caramel sweetness. Really hints toward an amber style with the caramel sweetness here. Nice light toasty grains to go with it.

Classic straightforward amber. A little lighter on the malt and feel with a touch of wetness slightly. Mild herbal tea like hop bent on the finish and a pinch of grapefruit rind like zest. Some nice faint caramel and grainy toast round out a bit.

It's a straight forward simple amber, that's decent, but not earth shattering. Not much to really say about it, but I also can't find anything really faulty, weak, or wrong with it either.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

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.
