"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.

ABUSEDGOAT (2683) - 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. Its fairly complex, but really the flavor lacks to keep it really interesting. Its still a good solid brew.(3.3 --> 3.4)

UPDATED: OCT 9, 2006 Re-rate 10-8-06. I dont 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 Im a Ringwood or a malt fan. This particular bottle I got from Half Time seemed more on the caramel side than the bottles Ive purchased directly from the site in the past. I wonder if they have enhanced this brew since it first came out.

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.

Lubiere (13428) - 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.

Cletus (6355) - 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. Im definitely keeping the bpttles to display on my bar during the baseball season.

Flat out great. Nice looking with a head that will last a week,the beer wont too good. Lots of caramel and that distinctive ringwood taste. Fruit and hops in the middle,the finish is sweet but dry. A good amount of carbonation adds to the body.

OldGrowth (3400) - the Containment Area, 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.

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.

jercraigs (10210) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 15, 2004
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.
