According to the poem, there is a corner of a foreign field that is forever England. Since 1985, we’ve been turning many Albertan fields into one of England’s favourite drinks, brown ale. The go-to favourite for many, it’s become something of a legend.

Little Known Fact
One of our original three craft brews, Traditional was also one of the first English-style brown ales ever brewed in Canada... it’s still our best-known beer today.

Didn't have the robust flavours I was looking for in a English brown ale. Was good but not great.

shawnmurphy (1188) - Plattsburgh, New York, USA - JUL 20, 2017
Tasted while on vacation in Edmonton, Alberta. 12-ounce bottle pours clear amber with no head and a spritz of light tan lacing. Aroma: brown sugar, nuts. Flavor: malt-forward with the above flavors plus an odd wet newspaper taste. Mouthfeel: medium-bodied.

Pretty much the only beer I buy, stock in house, and drink regularly. The beer to which I compare all others. Don’t take my Trad away!

This was my go to dark beer in Alberta for a number of reasons. Mainly for easy availability in the local establishments. A decent darker beer but not a great beer.

bdleedahl (1722) - , Saxony, GERMANY - NOV 30, 2015
Great everyday easy drinking beer. Very clear copper colour. Sweet caramel taste. Not really a standard brown ale, more of an american style ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
