COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Pride of Milford" is a very special ale with a tapestry of complex flavors and aromas. It is brewed with five malts and fermented with the Ringwood yeast at a higher temperature which gives this beer a uniqueness all its own. "Pride" has a distinctive reddish copper color. It is strong and rich beer. When "Pride" was first brewed in December 1999, many thought the flavor and aromas of this beer had fruit overtones. No fruit or adjunct flavoring is added to this beer.

Smokey, sweet aroma and a touch of some kind of fruit in the flavor that I can't put my finger on. Malts and caramel are also present. Medium carbonation.

Has the appearance and aroma of your standard English Strong Ale, but it has an odd mix of flavors. There is an almost vinous, fruity aspect, with some slight roasted malt and hop bitterness near the finish. It's kind of an odd mix of English and Belgian Strong. Not sure if it works well, but I enjoyed it.

I liked this one - a creamy tasting ESB. Thinner malts but well balanced, you wouldn't expect the alcohol content.

Good fruity smell with a nice amber colour. The pour looked thick as the beer coated the side of the glass. Somewhat wierd taste, but not very strong. Not a bad beer, just not much taste as I had expected.

rich, complex flavor in a nice deep amber pour. there’s enough of a hop on this to make it worthwhile to drink, and it masks the 7.7 abv very well.

Small off-white head recedes into almost nothing very quickly, reddish body, fruity nose. Medium sweetness, fruity flavor. Too much carbonation for the style. No particular alcohol presence. Ringwood character does come through.

The lads at Cooperstown Brewing have done a nice job with this one. The 7.7% abv is well-concealed, like a surprise bunt down the third base line. Maltier and less-hopped than most, this is a sweet, tasty brew.

I know this is good, despite not being a big fan of Eng. Strongs. Fits style fairly well...quite frothy head, wonderful reddish color. Super malty, and the ringwood + 7.7% makes it quite sweet. Went well with super peppery teriyaki steak. Thanks Jayme.

Nice cloudy dark amber/maroon hue, almost no head. Haven’t had a lot of Eng Str Ales; looks just like a barley wine to me. Nose winelike, with caramel and prunes. Flavor -- ah, here’s where it stops being like a barley wine. Much "darker", roastier, more porter-like; alcohol is present to a slightly great extent than I’d like but the fruit-in-rum effect does offer some compensation. Long somewhat bitter finish. Good shit.

Nice copper color. Has a nice bite to it, it’s not a big bite but there is one there. A very nice Strong Ale.
