1892 Traditional Ale was the first beer ever brewed at Quidi Vidi Brewery. This exceptional ale is brewed using the finest two row malt and North American and European hops. Rich malt sweetness which is balanced by the perfect amount of mild hop bitterness. Pours a rich amber color and offers a clean finish

Bottle. Newfoundland. Clear amber, decent head. Malty and stale-bread smell. Hints of apples in the rather watery flavor. Thin mouthfeel; I could chug this all day and not feel much.

mrkimchee (1414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 22, 2003
clear copper, beige head. faint perfumy hop and tasty malt nose. flavour shows whole wheat bread, toffee and a little roast. all in all not bad from a brewery that makes one of the most awful cherry beers ever.

A great session beer from a respectable Newfoundland micro-brew. Malts are subtly sweet and hops is present just enough to dance with the ruby dark flavors. Head and lacing are also quite acceptable. This is a tasty version of what I think is a rather boring style. The locals on George Street are quite proud of it and I can see why.

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 8, 2003
Dark amber. Pours w/ a large, fizzy almond head that quickly disappears. Very malty aroma w/ some caramel & spice. Light body. Decent malt flavour but not much else. Very quick finish. Little bitterness.

Eirikur (385) - hafnarfjordur, ICELAND - MAY 8, 2003
Very weird beer, I just dont know how to describe it. Light bitter taste, a bit of malt, dry grass smell and it just felt like old style light ale.

The best of the Quidi Vidi's I've tried, but still not super. Deep orange colour with a smallish fizzy head. Spicy hop quality in the aroma. Unfortunately that quality isn't retained in the taste. A medium bodied, but watery palate is accompanied by a balanced caramel and light bitter taste.
