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.

The original reason for my longtrip through Montreal to Cooperstown. Ask me and I will tell you the story. POured with a light khaki head and a medium copper colored body. The aomra was oranges with some old toffee. There was also some grainy character. The taste was old toffee with some grapefruit. There was also a little butter. Finishes sweet.

This brew poured a small head of fine to medium sized light brown mostly diminishing bubbles that left a no lacing and a transparent dark amber colored uncarbonated body behind. Its aroma is a very nicecaramel malt one and its mouthfeel is initially strong with a high alcohol content feel that smoothens in its finish leaving a lingering malt hop feeling and flavor. The flavor is a medium strong malt hoppy one with elements of spice.

Good fruity smell with a nice amber colour. The pour looked thick as the beer coated the side of the glass. Somewhat wierd taste, but not very strong. Not a bad beer, just not much taste as I had expected.

Slightly hazy amber with a slight white head. Aroma is very fruity and buttery- kinda diacetylish. I really like that ringwood yeast. Gives a great authentic english strong aroma, along with lots of malt. Reminds me a little like old thumper or any other shipyard brew due to the yeast selection, however, this beer has a medium body and is rich in flavor. However- I really believe that there can be no way that this is 7.7% abv. It just tastes like it is around 5. A very good strong ale and not overbearing. Extremely drinkable.

CapFlu (4779) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 11, 2004
(Bottle) Pours a thin, quick-dissipating, white head and a copper body. Weak malt nose that is rather lactic. Has a very strong english flavour - wouldn’t be surprised to find golding and kent hops in here. Linguring mild malt finish. Average.

Thanks Ibrew2or3 for the share. Pours clear orange-gold with an off-white head. Aroma is light fruit, malt, apricot, honey, caramel, sugar. Flavor is similar with lots of honey, malt, some raisin flavor, and a minor hop bite. Starts sweet, hoppy mid-mouth, and bitter with sweet in the finish. Not a bad session beer.

Location: Sampled at Tap NY, 4/27/13

Aroma: The nose of this beer comes off as overly sweet, fruity, and a bit malty as well
Appearance: The one pours a reddish-orange color with a small off-white head
Flavor: The taste is pretty much just like the nose, overly sweet, fruity and malty
Palate: The body is medium-plus, it has a decent feel, though it does get a little bit sticky
Overall Impression: I wasn’t a huge fan of this one. It just drank too sweetly for my tastes, and lacked the balance I was looking for. It isn’t terrible, but it isn’t really that good either.

Aurelius (4651) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 5, 2004
An interesting cross between a bitter and a brown ale. Fruity and sulfury, a little too tannic. OK label, darkish PA coloring. Finish is a bit on the astringent/alcoholic side and overbrewed.

wlajwl (4614) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - DEC 29, 2012
Aroma is sweetish malts and hint of vinous notes. The flavor is fruit/berries, medium sweetness and a mix of smooth and tangy in the finish.

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.
