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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Draught at the brewery, 7/15/2006.
Brass-goldenrod colored body shows medium-high clarity and has very slight beige tints on the edges. Large, white head fairly steadily recedes to cover, with some minimal, spotty lacing left behind.
Malty and estery from the nose, it combines to produce a note reminiscent of peaches and apples dipped in honey butter...or something like that. Medium strength overall, with very basic complexity, just malt and esters really. Some light alcohol adds a touch of warmth/spiciness but is otherwise minimal. A very slight hint of breadiness is noted, but it’s a doughy/dry combination, whereas some grainy or husky flavors might improve both balance and complexity. A bit of dried grass is noted from the hops, but very fleeting.
The flavor is very monotonous, being comprised mostly of honey-like and buttercreamy malts. Light fruitiness adds a touch of depth and there is a slight saltiness or other mineral-like note on the end. But again, it just seems very focused on buttercream sweetness, with a hint of alcohol dryness. Almost like a strong American golden ale, with medium to low attenuation. I think some different malts could do it good by adding more complexity, and a touch more attenuation my relieve some of the monotonous sweetness. But otherwise, a clean, uneventful beer with a smooth texture.

Pours a dark amber body with an off white head. Aroma is sweet malt with a potent hop aroma of citrus. Flavor is dominated by malt and the citrus hoppy sting comes in in the finish. okay.

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.

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.

CapFlu (5100) - 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.

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.
