Tankhouse ORGANIC Ale

Brewmaster’s Notes

Our original brewery in Toronto’s historic Distillery District, known as “Tankhouse #3” was built in 1879 as a storage building for bulk spirits waiting to be filled into barrels. It was in this building in 2003 that our Tankhouse Ale was born. Now made with all organic ingredients, we use an abundance of organic hops and five different organic malts to produce a rich, fiery pale ale, copper-red in colour, and truly satisfying in flavour.

This is a very balanced beer in every sense: between bitterness and sweetness, as well as the hop/malt intensity. It’s a wonderfully drinkable full-bodied beer, with huge malt and hop flavours that perfectly complement each other. We use five varieties of organic malt in the recipe to give the beer depth, and an abundance of organic cascade finishing hops to impart the refreshing citrus aroma that leaves you wanting more.

Tasting Notes: Aromas of citrus and spice with roasted notes. Complex malty texture with a snappy bitterness from the cascade hops.
