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

Narnad (1518) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - MAY 31, 2010
Pours from the bottle a clean amber color with a small, dense, white head. Aroma has a very sweet grainy and corny nose, light apple juice nose, low malty aroma, not much hops. Flavor has a sweet apple juice and caramel malt note up front with a sweet grainy note coming in later and finishing with some grassy hoppiness. Body is light with a modest amount of carbonation lending a slightly dry feeling to the ale. Not a top tier brew but definitely one that can be drank pretty easily. Slightly grainy and the grassy flavors are a tad bit on the stronger side for my liking but all in a pretty drinkable brew.

bottle pours light amber with a tall off white head. Aroma is noble hops and grassy malts. Flavor is rich pale and caramel malts, bittersweet with a toffee bite. Clean finish with little to no hop character, just mellow malt sweetness all the way through.

Pretty average amber, but better than the rest of quidi Vidi’s beers. Pour is light brown with a finger of tan head. Aroma of toasted malts and caramel. Taste is nutty and malty. Overall, not too bad.

scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - MAR 25, 2010
Toasty oats and barley aroma, like breakfast. Oranged amber, sticky clean white head, great lacing. Very sweet, like a treat for horses. No yin to the yang. This is only one half of a beer, though this half is beefy, chewy, and firm.

hobbersr (690) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 2, 2010
Pours a light orange with an off white head. The aroma is sweet and malty. The flavor is loaded with caramel and sweet malt. Meh, just too sweet for me.

TheJester (2542) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 1, 2009
341 mL bottle. Copper red with a small head. Mild aroma of Euro hops, spice and tin. Flavour is stunningly uninteresting, without being offensive. More caramel than hops. Kinda sweet.

BillKismet (3863) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2009
Light amber with plushy head. Nice subdued maltiness in the aroma with a whisper of wood-aged vinegar. Medium malted body. Decent, malty amber ale, if non-descript.

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 31, 2009
Bottle. Pours medium amber with a thin off-white head that quickly reduces to a razor-thin ring, spotty/ropey lacing. Nose is soft caramel malt, buttery corn-on-the-cob, grass, tired hops. Flavors of grassy hops, citrus, malt. Seems a bit buttery on the palate, as well as a bit caramelly thanks to the malt. Nice, appropriate amber ale that I wouldn’t say no to if I ever should find myself in Newfoundland.
