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.

beerbill (3599) - 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.

DYCSoccer17 (3581) - 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.

probstblueribbon (3579) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 16, 2010
Sampled at Central New York Brewfest, Syracuse NY. 06FE10.

App.: Clear deep amber with white rim. Aroma: Some tart fruitiness, mainly brown sugar, dark dried fruits, lightly buttery, lightly woodsy and rum-like. Palate: Medium body and carbonation. Flav.: Some nice molasses/licorice, dark dried fruits, a touch of wood/earth, still a bit buttery, some pine/earth hops, quite fruity (berries); lightly sweet, quite bitter, finishes abruptly.

Meh, not great.

Cloudy amber color with big frothy off white head. Malt and dried fruit aroma. First taste was a bit bitter with a bit of malt and figs. The 7.7% is nicely masked. The body is full and rich. The finish is smooth and clean.

OldGrowth (3102) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - DEC 1, 2004
Bottle, from Halftime. Ok nose, apples,carmel or butterscotch. Reddish orange color, good size head, but I poured it kinda quick, that faded quickly to a lite hazy cover. Bittersweet flavors, a sour bitter thing, figs, apples, dates, little plasticy. Thick body, creamy oily mouthfeel, bitter, non hoppy, finish. Oh that ringwood.

DarkElf (3050) - La Jolla, California, USA - JUN 11, 2006
(12 oz bottle: Obtained 27-Jun-05 in trade with jah noth, thanks Dan!) Expecting the usual gusher from Cooperstown, Iím pleasantly surprised that there was only a slight rush of carbonation when I popped the cap. And pouring the beer was easy -- no foamy mess. The aroma is fruity, woody, a bit earthy. Good follow-through in the flavor, as Iím getting plenty of sweet, dark fruits, caramely malts, a bit of molasses, some earthiness, finishing with a hint of smoke on the back end. Bitterness is very mild. Medium-bodied, low to medium carbonation, fairly easy to drink. Orange-amber body is fairly hazy, but the filmy, off-white layer dissipates fairly rapidly. Not a great beer, but quite drinkable and one of the better ones Iíve had from this brewery.

Bottle. Dark brown body with a tiny bubbly white head. Aroma: honeycomb malt, slight spice, yeast, lemon and alcohol. Flavour: spicey malt, ídustyí, dark autumn fruit, corn, tangy fruit peels and a long bitter malt finish. Interesting.
