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

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 (2244) - Peterborough, 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.

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.

I cellared this for three months to bring out the finer qualities. Nice amber beer with decent carbs and a small rocky tan head with some slippery lacing. Aroma ok with biscuity malts, some dark fruit, a touch of stink and the slightest hint of smoke - that’s probally due to the brewery being forced to use cigarette butts in the filtering system because of the failing economy. Taste was really good. The hops were a bit too strong but mixed in with the malts it’s not bad at all. The malts are not the best but there enough of them to give a good ammount of flavour overall. There is a faint hint of oxydization but nothing to slice your wrists over. Mouthfeel is weak and a bit on the rough side. There is a bad tasting bitter aftertaste. My belch sounded like rocks getting pulzerized with a sledgehammer.

Cirrhosis (1280) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 5, 2009
Crystal clear honey brown, fairly large head with amazing retention, this beer looks way better then I ever imagined it would. Peanuts!!!! I swear I smell peanuts. Slightly sour smelling, what the hell where did the smell go after I inhaled the sour peanut smell all the sent vanished, where did it go? This beer feels soft and thick, very creepy feeling, yuck. The taste is watery and nutty, but it pretty much taste like nothing, hello taste where are you. The only way I can describe the taste of this beer is bland and just plain old sucks, I guess it could be worse but I don’t see how, this was very close to getting the dishonorable dump down the sink, thank god this was a free beer

alexchafe (29) - , Newfoundland, CANADA - MAR 16, 2009
aromas of caramel and apple. nice orange-brown colour, with short-lived off-white head. Tastes of caramel, with some grassy notes, light spices and some nice bitter on the back-end. you’ll notice the quality of this one really deteriorates as the temperature falls. Overall, a great session beer, that’s easy to come by in newfoundland!
