American Pale Ale (APA) |  5.00% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
5.0% ABV, 30 IBUs - This beer is 3 Floyd’s American “Mild” Ale. With a more assertive hop profile that British Milds and a relatively low alcohol content this is a great session beer that still has Pale Ale characteristics. Pride and Joy is a golden color with a fruity nose and a light caramel sweetness to balance the crisp finish. A truly refreshing ale that drinks easily.

I poured this 12oz bottle of mild ale into a red wine glass, which i seem to be using a lot lately. I sat out on the porch while drinking this delight.

A: It poured a hazy orange color with a beautiful thick, cream-colored head which stayed around for the entire time, leaving thick rings on the side of the glass. There was lots of active carbonation visible through the haze.

S: The smell was incredible! Sweet and fruity notes everywhere. I could pick out a bubblegum smell at first, then I got the green apple smell coming at me. Other than that, I could smell grapes, like white grapes or something. The citrus hop smell was obvious, but it was not overpowering at all.

T: Very well-balanced. Spicy hops were countered by toasty/buttery malts. The predominant taste is citrus. Grapefruits, sour apples...and there is some other interesting flavor which I cannot put my finger on. Medicinal? It was more than just a flavor though, since it affected the mouthfeel in some way.

M: This ale was very smooth. The carbonation was neither too weak or too strong, but just right. Also, as I mentioned before, there was some quality that gave it a (medicinal) feeling.

D: This is now my favorite "mild ale." It is so damn drinkable that I have vowed to stop drinking water from now on. I am not going to file a BeerSpy report. Just stay the hell away from this beer!
