"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.

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. It’s 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 that’s been put in a bottle.

(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.

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

Sampled August 2008 - 12oz bottle, from a variety pack. Pours orange-amber, topped with a large off-white head. Biscuity aroma, with notes of caramel malt, peach, apple, and mild citric hops. Flavor began with caramel malt, complimented by apricot and mild hops. Long sweet malt finish.

Original rating, 4/22/07 12oz bottle. Dark Amber color with a thin tan head. Strong malt aroma with undertones of driet fruit and a bit of peat. Strong roasted malt flavor with prunes and honey and spice in the background. Long lasting sweet malt finish with some alcohol.

goldtwins (4319) - Nesconset, New York, USA - APR 21, 2007
Poured a slightly hazy copper color with a large creamy off-white head. Sweet lgithly aged malt. Dark fruits but a touch of paper. My fault on that part for forgetting it was in the celler for 6 years. Fruity malt with a dry finish and light bitterness. Light warmth. Medium bodied.

Took the tour of the brewery last year and brought a case from them. I have been searching NJ for it ever since.Very good tasting beer with a nice red color. It looks like I will have to visit again this summer to get some more. A few cases this time.

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. It’s a pity we cant’t get it in PA

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 kinds—I 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 Pride’s that impressed me for their smoothness despite ABV and hearty filling; this session was a disappointing exception.
