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.

BelgianBeerGal (3190) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JUN 9, 2010
12oz traded bottle. No clue what to expect based on the label art. Pours an orange-amber colour with a big, foamy, eggshell head and plenty of lacing. Pretty big aroma of sweet malt and a little alcohol. Pretty bold flavour that reminds me of brown sugar. Honestly, a pretty tasty beer!

AirForceHops (3174) - 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.

(12 oz bottle: Obtained 27-Jun-05 in trade with jah noth, thanks Dan!) Expecting the usual gusher from Cooperstown, I’m 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 I’m 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 I’ve had from this brewery.

probstblueribbon (2916) - 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.

The lads at Cooperstown Brewing have done a nice job with this one. The 7.7% abv is well-concealed, like a surprise bunt down the third base line. Maltier and less-hopped than most, this is a sweet, tasty brew.

tgncc (2816) - Bellmore, New York, USA - AUG 21, 2010
The aroma is decent, caramel, apple. The flavor is sweet molasses, very malt forward, slightly. sour, decent the appearance is a deep amber color. The finish is crackery ok. Not bad at all.

Brown pour with slightly off-white head. Aroma of dark fruit, toffee, and caramel. Dark fruit flavor with toffee and a hint of sourness. Decent beer.

garthicus (2670) - Dublin, IRELAND - OCT 2, 2009
Bottle. Dark brown body with a tiny bubbly white head. Aroma: honeycomb malt, slight spice, yeast, lemon and alcohol. Flavour: spicey malt, ’dusty’, dark autumn fruit, corn, tangy fruit peels and a long bitter malt finish. Interesting.

OldGrowth (2662) - 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.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - DEC 9, 2001
Nice ruby brown color, beige head, generous lace, medium body. The yeast is quite evident in the nose, but the malts dominate. Still the finish has a nice bite of hops which adds greatly to the pleasure of this beer. A good beer I think, and a very quaffable brew for all concerned, and a cool label for us baseball fans. ’Thanks Venom.’
