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.

Poured a slightly hazy copper color with a large creamy off-white head. Sweet lgithly aged malt. Dark fruits but a touch of paper. My fault on that part for forgetting it was in the celler for 6 years. Fruity malt with a dry finish and light bitterness. Light warmth. Medium bodied.

Took the tour of the brewery last year and brought a case from them. I have been searching NJ for it ever since.Very good tasting beer with a nice red color. It looks like I will have to visit again this summer to get some more. A few cases this time.

Just returned from Cooperstown, I tried this on draft at a steak house. Very nice dark amber color, perfect head that lasted almost to the end. It was smooth and warming with little nutty ending. I went to the brewery the next day and brought some home. It’s a pity we cant’t get it in PA

The ale was a bright copper in the glass and clear as tree amber. White lacing lingered long after the ale was poured into the glass, suggesting a well preserved, strong bodied ale. Indeed, even a light quaff could detect the noble hops (Fuggle?), but beneath lay tart spice, sweet malt, and hot biscuits. Mouth feel is surprisingly light and smooth for a beer with so much malt (five kinds—I would guess Crystal, Pale, and a Pils were used). A fruity sweetness begins the taste, but the bitters quickly go to work and the mouth puckers, losing what could be a complex taste. Although this is not a style of choice, I have had Pride’s that impressed me for their smoothness despite ABV and hearty filling; this session was a disappointing exception.

guzzler67 (1490) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - NOV 22, 2006
Dark amber appearance with an average size head and a small amount of lacing. Fruity aroma, replicating cranberries, followed by sweet, caramel malts as it warmed. Taste starts sweet, turns fruity in the middle and finishes on the spicy side. Medium bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel. Enough subtlety to keep things interesting. Relatively high abv was well hidden.
