COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Rastacouere (6126) - 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 (7782) - 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.

Andrew196 (1091) - Katy, Texas, USA - SEP 1, 2003
Aroma of stale malts and vegetables. Color of marmelade with a thin head. Creamy mouthfeel with a mild malt taste. Bread and more veggies, celery. SLight hoppiness in the finish.....kinda boring.

AceOfHearts (1375) - 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.

humulus (339) - Salem, Missouri, USA - JUL 28, 2003
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.
