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.

Drake (7926) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JAN 15, 2011
12 ounce bottle courtesy of MaltDawg at the 13th Richmond Gathering. Thanks! Pours a clear amber color with a thin head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of citrus hops, toffee, butterscotch. The taste is toffee, bitter hops, butter, caramel. Medium bodied. Meh.

pete4999 (973) - Buffalo, New York, USA - NOV 30, 2010
Bottle. Pours a reddish mahogany brown. Really an intriguing beer. Smells strongly of caramel, toffee, banana, and other sweet fruits. Taste has a hit of vanilla and flowery notes throughout. Nice bite up front with a smooth, sweet finish.

tgncc (2661) - Bellmore, New York, USA - AUG 21, 2010
The aroma is decent, caramel, apple. The flavor is sweet molasses, very malt forward, slightly. sour, decent the appearance is a deep amber color. The finish is crackery ok. Not bad at all.

Boliv (1148) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 18, 2010
Bottle. Pours deep copper with red hints and a small bubbly tan head. Aromas of caramel malts, red fruit, berry, and grass. Flavor is sweet malt, caramel, berry, and cherry. Pleasantly sweet with a little sour cherry and bitter sappy pine in the finish. Medium carbonation and a little sticky and creamy. Pretty good.

bhensonb (10340) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 6, 2010
Bottle from Half Time.Pours ruddy amber with a foamy beige head. Medium body with mildly frothy carbonation. Aroma is floral/fruity with roast malt. Flavor is pretty much that, though maybe the fruit is a little more forward. Slightly chewy. Pretty well balanced and almost smooth - the malt roast is just a bit harsh. Seems to fit the style.

BelgianBeerGal (3013) - Dayton Area, Ohio, USA - JUN 9, 2010
12oz traded bottle. No clue what to expect based on the label art. Pours an orange-amber colour with a big, foamy, eggshell head and plenty of lacing. Pretty big aroma of sweet malt and a little alcohol. Pretty bold flavour that reminds me of brown sugar. Honestly, a pretty tasty beer!

UPDATED: DEC 16, 2010 Pours a nice frothy head over a rich, cloudy, dark orange/ruby red. Thousands of little bubbles slowly and deliberately rise to the surface. Gorgeous. The head actually stays atop the beer as I drink it, right down to the bottom. Has a malty aroma with a mild sweetness. However the sweetness is the overwhelming characteristic of the smell. A slight bitter hint of malt at the end. Seems to have all the characteristics of an English Ale. Some butterscotch from the (I’m guessing) Ringwood yeast; sharp and sugary. Has a very strong pungent flavor. Heavy malt and some sweetness, but overall has a strong, somewhat sour taste. Any hops that might be in this beer are completely overpowered. But the malt is pleasant with the perfect sweet/sour mix. Lots of yeast, a sugary finish: plums, grapes, dates. Minor alcohol burn on the way down. Density is very thick and chunky. Remains on the palate for a little while, but has a smooth aftertaste. Fizzy; the fact that the carbonation is slight on the tongue is a bonus. As strong as this is, it is surprisingly easy to drink. Has a good combination of malts, thickness, sweetness, fizzyness and drinkability.

probstblueribbon (2737) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 16, 2010
Sampled at Central New York Brewfest, Syracuse NY. 06FE10.

App.: Clear deep amber with white rim. Aroma: Some tart fruitiness, mainly brown sugar, dark dried fruits, lightly buttery, lightly woodsy and rum-like. Palate: Medium body and carbonation. Flav.: Some nice molasses/licorice, dark dried fruits, a touch of wood/earth, still a bit buttery, some pine/earth hops, quite fruity (berries); lightly sweet, quite bitter, finishes abruptly.

Meh, not great.

CanIHave4Beers (2897) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - OCT 13, 2009
Exemplary within its style. Pours a deep amber color with a small head and good lace. The aroma is very floral semi sweet and fruity. The flavor is nicely nutty and fruity with a light herbal bitterness and some earthy and spicy hops.

Bottle. Dark brown body with a tiny bubbly white head. Aroma: honeycomb malt, slight spice, yeast, lemon and alcohol. Flavour: spicey malt, ’dusty’, dark autumn fruit, corn, tangy fruit peels and a long bitter malt finish. Interesting.
