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.

08.05.04. Bottle, a surprise gift from a customer. Reddish amber color with a trace of a head that lingers. Aromas of blueberry, raspberry, sweet malt. Flavor is carried by a thin but coating palate that finishes sharply, dry, and hoppy - Grapeskins. More sweeeet berry and plum flavors and tartness. Some nice alcohol in flavor, but not in aroma, adds depth to taste. An interesting brew. Quite nice, really, and a great surprise. Not what I had expected when given this treat.

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.’

poured a clear brownish amber with little head...malty aroma with touches of overripe apple, alcohol, and banana liquor...some malty apple flavors with some sweetness riding along..semi-creamy mouthfeel with just a sliver of bitterness at the end..pretty smooth for 7.7%..but nothing stands out as extraordinary

Clear copper. Fluffy white foam. Nutty with mashed dates and earthy Ringwood notes. Light waft of rounded fruitiness. Delicate carbonation with a creamy softness. Opens with a gritty stamp of dryness from the Ringwood, coupled with an earthy hop understatement. Well-attenuated, and gritty as a result of the yeast, but equally slippery and juicy to augment its remarkable depth. Complex, but so clean and devoid of flaw. Nutty malt flavor rises to the surface and continually softens the body, gaining a depth-lending touch of toffee glaze and toasted walnut harshness. Retrained, but noticeable, oily hop bitterness in the finish accompanies the lengthy Ringwood-accented toasty, nutty malt (Crystal?) depth that lingers on. Not sure what else you want from the style. This is absolutely superlative and must be to die for, cask-conditioned. Thanks, IPFreely.

Pour is orangey amber with a thin off white head...smell is vegetable...taste is rather sweet and vegetable-ish as well...I would not be proud of this...

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 7, 2003
Deep brownish red body topped by a medium thick quickly disappearing head that leaves good lace behind. Sweet vanilla malt aroma with a touch of hops and alcohol. Slightly sweet malt flavor with bitter background and a strong bitter finish. Medium to full bodied and relatively dry.

ABUSEDGOAT (2416) - California, USA - JUN 18, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 18, 2005 After sampling 4 beers before this one, this one seemed to be a blend of the lighter beers at the brewery. Fairly sweet and bitter, and the alcohol was noticeable. Not really that special. UPDATE: pouring like a jackass gave this a large head. Poured a thin brown color like Newcastle. Aroma was fruity, alcoholic, and bitter. Finishes nutty and alcoholic. It’s fairly complex, but really the flavor lacks to keep it really interesting. It’s still a good solid brew.(3.3 --> 3.4)

I liked this one - a creamy tasting ESB. Thinner malts but well balanced, you wouldn't expect the alcohol content.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - SEP 10, 2002
I know this is good, despite not being a big fan of Eng. Strongs. Fits style fairly well...quite frothy head, wonderful reddish color. Super malty, and the ringwood + 7.7% makes it quite sweet. Went well with super peppery teriyaki steak. Thanks Jayme.

Rich ruby gold, next to no head. Malty nose - some chocolate, dark fruits. Nicely h opped. Rich malt up front and then a huge bitter acaramel w. dark fruits - kind of strange.
