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.

An interesting offering as a unique beer of their brewery. I liked the complexity of the malts, the alcohol is hidden well, but it didn’t make me want to drink more of it (seems like that is the theme over at Cooperstown Brewery)

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2014 Original rating 05/14/10: ... 6/5/7/4/15 = 3.7 ... 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........ ==RERATE 07/10/14 == Color is super-cloudy, dark carrot orange. Doesn’t quite have sediment,but the fluid is murky as hell. Looks awesome. Interesting that when I opened the bottle, it foamed up and bubbled out like a volcano. The aroma is unusually metallic. Sugary, almost like a barleywine. Supremely grainy, with an almost lacquer-like scent. An earthy grain bill. When you let it warm up, a sort of Sour Ale component kicks in; I’m not sure if that’s a byproduct of the yeast (I thought they used Ringwood), but it’s unusual, in a good way. Flavor is more sugary malts, with very little hop presence. More finished wood sealant. As it warms up a bit, the sugars really explode. There is a mild sugary sourness that I really enjoy. Feels thick and chewy, and sits around after after you’re done with it. This is an intense beer, make sure you decant it properly and let it warm up.

This had some fruit in the taste. Strong alcohol for a %7.7 brew. Not bad. Good on a cool night.

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.

Sligtly hazy amber with a small white head. An odd beer as I was not expecting a big beer from such a small brewery. Aroma of old wood and barleywine. A big taste from the first sip, a woody, liquor conditioned taste. You can not detect the ABV but you can feel it.

Had this one bottled at the brewery in Milford, New York. Bright, medium yellow pour with an unusual banana and strawberry nose, citrusy, with pineapple, cherry, citrusy hops, spectacularly complex, excellent.

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.

Cherry, fruity, yeast nose. Ruby amber hue. Sticky off-white head. Very sweet, smooth and light texture/body. Start is all malt, flows very smooth over palate. Yeast provides nice fruitiness. Very drinkable, alcohol is not evident at all. Finishes with a light bitter lingering finish.
