1892 Traditional Ale is brewed using the finest two row malt and North American and European hops. Generously hopped, this is a full bodied reddish amber ale that offers a clean, sparkling finish.

wnp22 (685) - 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 (6154) - 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...

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.

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.
