A good average beer. Pours clean amber brown. Light bodied, smells of hay and mild alcohol. Tastes better than most large scale beers.
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! Wim (3954) - Weelde, BELGIUM - AUG 18, 2016

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.

Great everyday easy drinking beer. Very clear copper colour. Sweet caramel taste. Not really a standard brown ale, more of an american style ale.

Not a bad brown ale. Has a sweet caramel flavour, some roasted malts and a toasty nuttiness. cmacklin (1124) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 1, 2015
330 ml bottle. Pours a clear, reddish brown with a thin, beige head. Sweet caramel malt aroma with a faint nutty note. Sweet flavour of roasted malt, caramel and nuts with a dry finish. Medium body with a watery texture and average carbonation. UXO (1896) - CANADA - MAR 22, 2015
Pours clear medium amber with one finger of light tan head diminishing gradually to a thin skim, spotty lacing. (4/5) Nose is caramel with hints of toffee, grainy malt, mild fruit and nuttiness. (6/10) Taste is moderate sweet, mild bitter. (6/10) Medium to light bodied, moderate carbonation, dry finish. (3/5)
“Boring” might be a little harsh, but I’m not sure how better to describe it. “Straightforward”? “Unremarkable”? It’s a little light for the style, but there are no other negatives. Very drinkable and - speaking from experience - sessionable. (Just because this is the first time I’ve officially reviewed it, doesn’t mean it’s the first time I’ve drunk it!)

On tap at Sage in Canmore, Alberta.
Clear, reddish copper with an off-white head and excellent lacing.
Aroma of caramel, light fruit and lemon rind.
Taste of mixed spices, caramel, light fruit and mild citrus.
Medium/light body and medium/high carbonization.
My take on this beer clearly differs from other reviewers--particularly in regard to the spiciness. I checked with others in my party who had tried the beer and they also felt that spiciness was the predominant flavor, closely followed by caramel malt. In any case, the beer I tasted was fairly decent.
