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.

Dark cranberry color with brown and orange hues. Smallish cream ring for a head. Smells of wheat, banana, grapes. Taste is sweet malt, banana, grapes, pit fruits, dry hops and caramel. Pretty good ale, but nothing extraordinary here.

UPDATED: OCT 9, 2006 Re-rate 10-8-06. I donít know what happened. Its almost like they re-worked this beer. Its way too high on the malt side and somewhat syrupy, lacking a hoppy balance to settle things out. I used to love this one as indicated below. ********** I am extremely biased as I love this beer. It has a coppery caramelly bubble gum finish which makes me want more. The only thing that works against it in my opinion is that it has a bit of a grainy finish which you find on the other CB beers. Maybe Iím a Ringwood or a malt fan. This particular bottle I got from Half Time seemed more on the caramel side than the bottles Iíve purchased directly from the site in the past. I wonder if they have enhanced this brew since it first came out.

HogTownHarry (6131) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JAN 24, 2006
Bottle (12oz) Hazy deep amber-orange with a large beige lasting rocky-foamy off-white head. Very faint aroma of dry floral hops, rye bread, faintly citrusy and not much malt anywhere. Taste is juicier (peach, orange, apple) with more floral and slightly funky hops - nice and balanced, the finish is quite juicy. Mouthfeel is slightly acidic and fizzy, decent body - donít taste the alcohol at all - very nice.

Just returned from Cooperstown, I tried this on draft at a steak house. Very nice dark amber color, perfect head that lasted almost to the end. It was smooth and warming with little nutty ending. I went to the brewery the next day and brought some home. Itís a pity we cantít get it in PA

Ibrew2or3 (7107) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 8, 2009
Bottle bonus courtesy of Cletus. Pours copper with thin tan head. The modest aroma has notes of apple, pears, sugar sweet malts, a bit of crystal malts and a touch of caramelization. The taste has caramelized malts mixing with prunes, apples and pears. It smooths out into the finish leaving sweetness and slight tart fruitiness to linger into the after taste.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 11, 2009
Rich caramel aroma with hints of banana (a bit like bananas Foster). Flavor is medium sweet with a slight hint of metal and a drying hop finish. Interesting beer.

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.

bhensonb (11533) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 6, 2010
Bottle from Half Time.Pours ruddy amber with a foamy beige head. Medium body with mildly frothy carbonation. Aroma is floral/fruity with roast malt. Flavor is pretty much that, though maybe the fruit is a little more forward. Slightly chewy. Pretty well balanced and almost smooth - the malt roast is just a bit harsh. Seems to fit the style.

wlajwl (4064) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - DEC 29, 2012
Aroma is sweetish malts and hint of vinous notes. The flavor is fruit/berries, medium sweetness and a mix of smooth and tangy in the finish.

iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 30, 2004
12 oz bottle: reddish copper with a nice off tan head. Sweet tangerine malt aroma and a flavour to match. Some piney bitterness adds a slight depth to the flavour and texture. The balance in this one is the best thing going for it: not overly flavourful or interesting. But drinkable and tasty in its own way.
