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.

rampmaster (642) - Alden, New York, USA - FEB 22, 2011
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a pint glass. No other information is available on the label. Appearance: 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. Smell: The aroma has a firm malty character with a good hit of earthy and lightly citrusy hops. Taste/Palate: 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. Notes: This beer is well made and dangerously drinkable.

McGarnigle (549) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 5, 2008
Bottle. Clear copper with an off-white head. Slight diacetyl aroma. Body is medium, sparkly carbonation. I donít really detect the fruitiness others do. Itís malty without hop bitterness, but it is also somewhat dry. Itís somewhat biscuity to me. A bit of the alcohol comes through. I think this is a very interesting beer, and Iíd drink it again.

Good Strong ale. Dark amber/light brown, thin head. Suprising hoppy, alcohol aroma. Very good piney bitter taste. Also some smokey, roasted flavors.

I get a less-than-thrilling "Magic Hat-type" fruit sense from this as well, but the malts conspire to rescue this brew from utter mediocrity. Extra points for aroma. I like this almost-backyard brewery, and look forward to sampling more of their offerings.

Nice copper color. Has a nice bite to it, itís not a big bite but there is one there. A very nice Strong Ale.

goz (359) - Chelmsford, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 7, 2003
Pours clear ruby red, medium tan head that slightly lasts, good lacing, tons of bubbles in the body. Aroma is buttery, fruity, and some caramel. Flavor is slightly fruity, buttery, light caramel. Body is medium, fairly dry. The second bottle I had of this was much warmer than the first, and the flavors and drinkability were much better when warmer (about 60 vs 45 or so for the first bottle).

Has a bit of spice note that reminds me almost of a Xmas ale posing as a Strong Bitter. My taste buds are confused, but itís not bad.
