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.

Aroma is sweet and buttery full of ringwood yeast character. Dark amber apperance. Sweet malty taste with some hops for balance, slight smoke flavor and a fruity finish with pear and apples coming through.

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.

Brown clear with thick long lasting tan frothy head. The nose is incredibly faint with just a hint of caramel. The taste is again some caramel and malts but the butter is very present but is weak and watter compared to other good beers out there.

UPDATED: OCT 9, 2006 Re-rate 10-8-06. I don’t know what happened. Its almost like they re-worked this beer. Its way too high on the malt side and somewhat syrupy, lacking a hoppy balance to settle things out. I used to love this one as indicated below. ********** I am extremely biased as I love this beer. It has a coppery caramelly bubble gum finish which makes me want more. The only thing that works against it in my opinion is that it has a bit of a grainy finish which you find on the other CB beers. Maybe I’m a Ringwood or a malt fan. This particular bottle I got from Half Time seemed more on the caramel side than the bottles I’ve purchased directly from the site in the past. I wonder if they have enhanced this brew since it first came out.

Very enjoyable ale! Rich flavor with a nice bitterness. Great Upstate NY beer.

gunhaver (1030) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 15, 2009
Bottle, courtesy Ibrew2or3. Hazy copper pour, light thin white head. Nose is dry, hoppy, raisin, some caramel and some must. Smooth flavors, lots of raisin, plum, hints of caramel, apricot and many dark fruits. Balanced, drinkable and full-bodied.

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - OCT 8, 2005
Aroma is highly diacetyl, but not necessarily out of place. The heavy, buttery notes work nicely with some light fruitiness beneath. The body is fruity and dry, highlighting a great meaty, nuttiness. Some hop bitterness fights through the fruity esters in the finish as well. Interesting to say the least.

estoppel (1028) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JAN 7, 2003
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.

12oz - Light tan head over brown liquid. Wood and creamy caramel on nose. A sweet malt palate, some molasses character. I liked this one.

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2006 Poured from bottle. Has aroma of grilled vegetables. This stuff is quite unique, with qualities of 3 or 4 different beers in the flavor. I detect nut, burnt wood, roasted malt to go along with the hops. Theres a sweetness in there that I really like. Crisp, clean aftertaste. Impressive beer.
