"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.

ClarkVV (4648) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 27, 2006
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.

This beer had a medium sized tan head with fine-large bubbles that was mostly diminishing.The body of this beer was clear with a little bit of carbonation observed.The hue was reddish-copper and there was no lacing.The nose was malt and alcohol and the flavor was malty and a little bitter from start to finish.The mouthfeel was tingly, smooth texture and light bodied.At 7.7% ABV the alcohol was not overpowering in my opinion.

muzzlehatch (4420) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - AUG 18, 2002
Nice cloudy dark amber/maroon hue, almost no head. Haven’t had a lot of Eng Str Ales; looks just like a barley wine to me. Nose winelike, with caramel and prunes. Flavor -- ah, here’s where it stops being like a barley wine. Much "darker", roastier, more porter-like; alcohol is present to a slightly great extent than I’d like but the fruit-in-rum effect does offer some compensation. Long somewhat bitter finish. Good shit.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - APR 21, 2007
Poured a slightly hazy copper color with a large creamy off-white head. Sweet lgithly aged malt. Dark fruits but a touch of paper. My fault on that part for forgetting it was in the celler for 6 years. Fruity malt with a dry finish and light bitterness. Light warmth. Medium bodied.

zach8270 (3961) - Henrietta, New York, USA - NOV 20, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2008 [bottle - 12 oz] Deep orange/copper color. Not much of a head to speak of. Very thick and buttery aroma with hints of malt, fruit and some grains. The flavor begins with a sweet and buttery flavor and goes to a smooth malt backbone and a slightly sweet and fruity finish with a nice alcohol warmth. Very thick and chewy.

CanIHave4Beers (3684) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - OCT 13, 2009
Exemplary within its style. Pours a deep amber color with a small head and good lace. The aroma is very floral semi sweet and fruity. The flavor is nicely nutty and fruity with a light herbal bitterness and some earthy and spicy hops.

beerbill (3576) - Laurel, New York, USA - FEB 13, 2006
12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy dark amber with a thick foamy head. Light aroma of malt and yeast. Slight floral flavor, but mostly just bitter, which I didn’t care for all that much. The bitterness moderated around mid-glass as the beer warmed a bit. This beer was worth trying, but I won’t be back for another 6-pack.
