Tankhouse is sold in stylish and shapely 341mL bottles. It contains 5.2% alcohol and pours a nice-looking deep red with a full head that dissipates quickly. It's extremely clear and considerably carbonated.
Tankhouse features a pungent aroma that is both spicy and yeasty. The taste is complex. It is at once hoppy and spicy. Nestled somewhere within the peppery body lurks some malt sweetness and a faint blast of citrus. The aftertaste is bitter, but balanced with a gentle maltiness.
People, lemmetellya, this is a seriously class beer! It is almost exactly what I am looking for when I reach for a craft ale. It looks beautiful, has a big flavour with lots of subtlety, tastes great and is highly sessionable. There is definitely a reason that Mill Street's Tankhouse Ale is one of the top-selling craft beers in Canada. It is both interesting enough for the serious beer enthusiast and approachable to appeal to average drinkers. It should be a staple in every beer-lover's fridge.
