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

Crockett (1066) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 29, 2004
Pours deep gold with a reddish hue. Off white sudsy head. Nose of toast. Wood and butterscotch. Rich and malty. Good mouthfeel. Some very tasty caramel and bitter balance. Traces of yeast and perhaps a little smoke or charred wood. Extremely light chocolate in the slightly sour dry finish. Not bad for a buck and a half.

What struck me most about this beer was its stunning amber color - very appealing to the eye. taste contained hints of both fruit and nut with a slightly bitter finish. I may try it again sometime.

wnp22 (698) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - JAN 8, 2004
Tasted in Toronto from LCBO. Tasted in dimple mug. Tasted at 5C. Colour is deep copper with a light sustained white head. Carbonation bubbles are evident. Estery, fruity aroma. Sweet malty caramel notes. Relatively sweet scent. The flavour doesn't hold up well relative to the aroma. Fairly boring taste. Watery, thin, with only a slight caramel hint. Finishes with a bitterness that stays in the back of your throat.

Rastacouere (6166) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 16, 2003
UPDATED: APR 11, 2004 Clear amber robe with neglectable head that is fugacious. Shy malty aroma. Taste of honey and caramel, very fizzy on the tongue. A light fruitiness of peaches hides a slight tartness, lightly bitter finish, not too hoppy. Could definitely have been worse in this style.

SimonPatrice (312) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 2, 2003
Copper color, foamy head. Caramel, raw grains, a bit of yeast in the aroma. Malty flavor with a hint of saltiness. Could use a little more hops but still a good malt/hops balance. Average but good.

Caramel dewiness in orangey Belgian character...Quiet hops in an uneventful ending...The definition of average...

jercraigs (9253) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 17, 2003
Copper colour, Some fruity notes in the aroma. Flavour has a bit of malt, and earthy notes in the finish. Pretty mainstream beer, with a watery mouthfeel.

AceOfHearts (1374) - Mountain View, California, USA - AUG 31, 2003
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.
