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.

12 ounce bottle courtesy of MaltDawg at the 13th Richmond Gathering. Thanks! Pours a clear amber color with a thin head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of citrus hops, toffee, butterscotch. The taste is toffee, bitter hops, butter, caramel. Medium bodied. Meh.

Amber body with a big fluffy off white head that recedes leaving a still respectable head of foam. Aroma is pleasantly malty with a bit of caramel and butterscotch (perhaps a touch of diacetyl, but I am not sure). Pleasantly sweet with a bit of bitterness to balance it. Something odd but not unpleasant floating about in the finish. Thanks for sharing Ken.

Bottle. Poured dark clear copper with a frothy off-white head. Fruity aromas of cantaloupe and pear, with a bit of butterscotch, but not the pungent diacetyl I found in some of the other Cooperstowns. Prominent toffee malt and fruity flavors up front seem to mysteriously dissolve, leaving a generally watery and diluted tasting finish, where any hop bitterness is basically washed away. Itís a shame because there are great full flavors here, but they are not being properly supported by the awkwardly thin body. It tastes like an otherwise decent but underdeveloped cask-conditioned beer thatís been put in a bottle.

Looked great when I poured it out, nice dark amber, great smell, almost like apples, but the taste is just pure malt. Nothing very exciting about it.

Brown clear with thick long lasting tan frothy head. The nose is incredibly faint with just a hint of caramel. The taste is again some caramel and malts but the butter is very present but is weak and watter compared to other good beers out there.

Lubiere (9765) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 12, 2005
Dark gold ale with a light white head. Strong diacetyl whiff in aroma. Sweet butterscotch and fruity taste, with sweet apples and pineapple. Overbearing and difficult to drink. Tap. CNY Brewfest Feb. 5 2005.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4831) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 7, 2012
My wife brought this one back from a trip to Rochester. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a heavily carbonated orange-caramel color with a large foamy off white head that left no lacing. The aroma was ripe cherries, figs and pears with faint caramel and bread underneath. The flavor was tangy caramel and butterscotch with notes of pear, apple, raisin and fig underneath. The finish was short with a touch of bread and fruit. Light to medium body but overcarbonated. Eh.

ben4321 (3784) - 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.
