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.

Best cooperstown beer to date. Pours a nice red with a lasting tan ring of a head. Aroma is faint, dark fruit and sweet alcohol. Flavor is similar, caramel, raisins, alcohol, and a nice amount of hops, pretty good.

BiddleBrau (1023) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2009
Deep mahogany with thin head. Malty nose, toasty with caramel. Caramel malt sweet with dry hop bitterness. Not so full on the palate and finishes clean. Real nice go. A stand up double. On tap at Dive 96, NYC

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - JUL 13, 2004
Dark cranberry color with brown and orange hues. Smallish cream ring for a head. Smells of wheat, banana, grapes. Taste is sweet malt, banana, grapes, pit fruits, dry hops and caramel. Pretty good ale, but nothing extraordinary here.

VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 28, 2001
Huge maltiness and a warming alcohol bite, all underneath the Ringwood yeast fruitiness. A ditto version of Geary’s Hampshire Ale, but a little tamer. Nice sipping brew.

KUEric (888) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 2, 2005
Bottle: Had a grass like aroma with some malty as well. The pour was nice with a lot of carbonation and a good looking sized head, although it was kind of a strange yellowish off-white color. T he flavor was veru strong, meaning it had a bite to. Almost like bitter beer face type of a bite. The malts were good and there are definitly some fruit overtones, but that bite was difficult for me to get past.

sheatripper (863) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUN 19, 2007
Bottle. Poured dark clear copper with a frothy off-white head. Fruity aromas of cantaloupe and pear, with a bit of butterscotch, but not the pungent diacetyl I found in some of the other Cooperstowns. Prominent toffee malt and fruity flavors up front seem to mysteriously dissolve, leaving a generally watery and diluted tasting finish, where any hop bitterness is basically washed away. It’s a shame because there are great full flavors here, but they are not being properly supported by the awkwardly thin body. It tastes like an otherwise decent but underdeveloped cask-conditioned beer that’s been put in a bottle.

Looked great when I poured it out, nice dark amber, great smell, almost like apples, but the taste is just pure malt. Nothing very exciting about it.

jayme9874 (756) - Hamburg, New York, USA - MAR 30, 2002
Clear bright copper. Thin head, nice lace. Nose of malt,yeast and a bit of peat? Medium body, soft and chewy, definite malt and peaty smoke on the palate, ringwood yeast(shows up very early and at the end) adds a unique and tasty fruity compliment to the beer. Nicely rich and balanced. Good shit! I have had 3 of this breweries beers and they have been winners.

The body has a rich amber color, good clarity and light off white head. The head fades quickly to just a thin wispy covering. This makes a little slick lacing on the glass. The aroma has a firm malty character with a good hit of earthy and lightly citrusy hops. The flavor reflects nose with its solid, lightly toasted malty base. The malt sweetness has some toffee and nuttiness with mellow fruity notes blended with both juicy and earthy hop notes. Hop bitterness keep the sweetness in check and gives good balance to the finish. This also makes this beer very drinkable even at 7.7%abv. The palate is a medium bodied with balanced carbonation.
