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.

blipp (8011) - La Mesa, California, USA - JUN 23, 2008
Bottle. Pours clear amber with a dissapearing off white head. Caramel aroma with candy sugar, cherry and hops. Medium body. Flavor has a general fruit sweetness, as well as caramel and hop notes. Not that bad.

PorterPounder (7221) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 5, 2004
Pours a dark amber - not unlike a bourbon. Decent off-white head with good lacing. Fruity aroma with a slight alcohol undertone. Slightly acidic flavor with some good malty notes. Has some of the same qualities that English bitters have - Fuggles is apparent. The aftertaste lingers a bit too long - alcohol hidden fairly well.

Radek Kliber (7113) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - APR 23, 2008
Bottle 355ml
Appearance: Clear amber ale with medium light creamy cover.
Nose :Alcoholic weave into woody hints, hint of vanilla dipped cherry and of twizzlers.
Flavor/Palate : Medium bodied , quiet empty frontal but with more character in the middle and finish. Semi-dry alcohol warmth, processed vanilla and dough. At finish texture becomes chewy and more complex. Brew with obvious flaws that transforms into likeable thing.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6615) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 7, 2012
My wife brought this one back from a trip to Rochester. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a heavily carbonated orange-caramel color with a large foamy off white head that left no lacing. The aroma was ripe cherries, figs and pears with faint caramel and bread underneath. The flavor was tangy caramel and butterscotch with notes of pear, apple, raisin and fig underneath. The finish was short with a touch of bread and fruit. Light to medium body but overcarbonated. Eh.

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUN 8, 2004
Bottle: Hazed copper hue with a frothy off-white head and very good lace. The aroma hints of biscuit, toasted malts, boyenberry, toffee, floral hops, and dusty yeast esters. Reminds me a lot of Fuller’s beer but not as strong. The taste has a mild fruity and malty tone with a good balance of bitters throughout. Undertone of earthy, woody and smoky notes which led to a subdued bitter finish. The alcohol is very well hidden. The feel is lively and dry, almost chalky, some richness. If you told me this was made in Britain, I would have believed you. A nicely quaffable strong ale, again very Fullers like.

HogTownHarry (6374) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JAN 24, 2006
Bottle (12oz) Hazy deep amber-orange with a large beige lasting rocky-foamy off-white head. Very faint aroma of dry floral hops, rye bread, faintly citrusy and not much malt anywhere. Taste is juicier (peach, orange, apple) with more floral and slightly funky hops - nice and balanced, the finish is quite juicy. Mouthfeel is slightly acidic and fizzy, decent body - don’t taste the alcohol at all - very nice.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 26, 2005
Pours a cloudy orange/red. Tasted a bit on the florally hoppy side but there were also some definite tastes of figs and raisins. Not a bad beer. I’m definitely keeping the bpttles to display on my bar during the baseball season.

AirForceHops (6065) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 17, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2011 Tap @ the Brewery, Milford, NY. Served in taster glass. Also had in a 12 oz bottle from the brewery. Nose of caramel and toffee candy, but not too sugary or rich. Also, dark fruit notes with a cereal malt flavor. Nice flavor in this one, some complexity. Flavor is malty and sweet, reminds me of a barleywine, caramel as well as English hops. Medium-full body. Very drinkable, alcohol is not evident at all. Finishes with a light bitter lingering finish. Nice brew.

Has the appearance and aroma of your standard English Strong Ale, but it has an odd mix of flavors. There is an almost vinous, fruity aspect, with some slight roasted malt and hop bitterness near the finish. It's kind of an odd mix of English and Belgian Strong. Not sure if it works well, but I enjoyed it.
