BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Mill Street Brew Pub
Ontario, Canada
millstreetbrewpub.ca

Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.20%

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.

Pours with a copper coloured body and rather frothy parchment coloured head that settles rather quickly to 1-2mm of creamy foam. Aroma: Toast, caramel, faintest hint of hops. Taste: Toasty fairly rich caramaly malt balanced to a clean noble hop bitterness. Medium bodied and very drinkable.

The beer pours a thick off-white head that settles after a few moments, leaving impressive glass lacing that continues as the beverage is enjoyed.

The beer itself is brown to copper coloured.

The smell is a mix of hops, nicely toasted malts, and the faintest hint of caramel.

The aroma attributes transfer to the taste in every way. The hop bitterness is so nicely balanced with the malt.

The beer is medium bodied, while the finish is a bit wet and smooth.

I really enjoy this beer and can’t say enough good things about it. If you like this style give it a try. Personally, it’s my favourite from Mill Street Brewery.

A very pretty copper pale ale with a moderate head and lacing, tasty malts, only mild hops, smooth mouthfeel. Goes down much too quickly!

I got a bottle of this from a mixed pack that I bought whilst in Hamilton for my son's hockey tournament. It poured a clear copper with white head that is leaving a spotty lace. The scent is faint bitter hop. The taste is nicely balanced and easy to drink. There was a floral spice present. The Mouthfeel is lighter with good carbonation. Overall it's ok certainly worth a try.

This was disappointing given the hype. Aroma hints of smoky roasted chocolate. Starts crisp but finish turns a bit hazy. Lingers and then hard to drink multiple. Nice dark amber colour and decent head.

Pours to a permanent buff head and deep amber color. Aroma is malt forward with caramel, toasted biscuits and slightly tinged of hops. Flavor is a malty and clean amber, balanced and appropriately toasty. Mouthfeel is medium. Overall, this is somewhere between British pale ale and American Amber. Excellent departure from hop mania.
