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.

ben4321 (4095) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 1, 2013
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 wasnít a huge fan of this one. It just drank too sweetly for my tastes, and lacked the balance I was looking for. It isnít terrible, but it isnít really that good either.

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.

ClarkVV (3892) - 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 itís 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.

zach8270 (3585) - 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.

beerbill (3538) - 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 didnít care for all that much. The bitterness moderated around mid-glass as the beer warmed a bit. This beer was worth trying, but I wonít be back for another 6-pack.

AirForceHops (3524) - 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.

CanIHave4Beers (3362) - 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.

DYCSoccer17 (3357) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 3, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2004 Pours a tranparent amber with a 1.5 cm off-white head with good staying-power. Very pleasant aroma--malts, sweet cherries, honey are noticeable from quite a distance. Lots going on flavorwise. Tastes almost belgian at first with some banana flavor, malty throughout. Smokiness to finish. Roasted malts, cherry hints, banana hints. Hides 7.7% remarkably well. This is a remarkable value at $1.39 a bottle. Did I mention beautiful lacing? If there was a complaint, it would be that it wasn't totally to style. The next time I am strapped for cash and need a quality 6 pack, I will definitely pick this up. Re-rate--this beer just grows on me. It gets better each time. Increased overall from 17 to 18.
