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.

OldGrowth (2645) - 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.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 26, 2005
Pours a cloudy orange/red. Tasted a bit on the florally hoppy side but there were also some definite tastes of figs and raisins. Not a bad beer. Iím definitely keeping the bpttles to display on my bar during the baseball season.

DarkElf (3033) - 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.

Sregnar35 (968) - Rotterdam, New York, USA - AUG 2, 2006
Best cooperstown beer to date. Pours a nice red with a lasting tan ring of a head. Aroma is faint, dark fruit and sweet alcohol. Flavor is similar, caramel, raisins, alcohol, and a nice amount of hops, pretty good.

slapknot (8) - Safety Harbor, Florida, USA - JAN 1, 2007 does not count
The ale was a bright copper in the glass and clear as tree amber. White lacing lingered long after the ale was poured into the glass, suggesting a well preserved, strong bodied ale. Indeed, even a light quaff could detect the noble hops (Fuggle?), but beneath lay tart spice, sweet malt, and hot biscuits. Mouth feel is surprisingly light and smooth for a beer with so much malt (five kindsóI would guess Crystal, Pale, and a Pils were used). A fruity sweetness begins the taste, but the bitters quickly go to work and the mouth puckers, losing what could be a complex taste. Although this is not a style of choice, I have had Prideís that impressed me for their smoothness despite ABV and hearty filling; this session was a disappointing exception.

Darft @ MrGoodbar GBC. Sweet buttery, malty. Light caramel color. Sweet malts, no biterness. Alcohol well hidden. Best of the Cooperstown offerings

bu11zeye (11940) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JUN 10, 2007
(Bottle) Pours a clear amber body with a small white head. Aroma of caramel, fruit, candish, peat, and buttered biscuits. Flavor of hops, nuts, toasted oats, and cherry.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 30, 2007
Shiny orange-toned amber body with a modest, sudsy off-white head. Aroma is like cinnamon toast. Flavor of tea-like malt, butterscotch and some pleasant warm spice. Moderately sweet and lightly bitter with a medium body and notable diacetyl. Like a strong bitter or winter warmer. This is the best offering that I encountered from this brewery, but I expect even more from a beer that has Pride of MILF in its name.
