Thanks to Irishace9 for this one. Had once before on tap, this is my first bottle experience with this one. Poured from 12 oz. bottle into CCB pint glass.
A: This is an attractive, nice copper with some haze. Fluffy two-finger off-white head that lasts. Medium level of visible carbonation.
S: Hops (pine with a touch of citrus) and bready, chewy malt. Not a big aroma overall here - although the amount of aroma and the citrus rind aspect grows as the beer warms during the drink.
T: Follows aroma - with the addition of grassiness to the hop profile, and an almost wheat/grainy flavor on the exhale. Overall impression is a bit malt forward. Dry with a moderate bitterness on the finish.
M: Heavy-bodied for style, and chewy. Good carbonation sensation. No alcohol to speak of.
O: An enjoyable beer. I think it could be just a bit more hoppy (especially the citrus character), but this seems to be a personal preference. The wheat flavor seems a bit out of place, but I think it's growing on me. Tasty, but nothing that blows your socks off.

Appearance: Poured this bad boy into a snifter and was dark gold/light amber in color. The head was approximately 1 finger, maybe a little more, but I was a bit disappointed with the head as it faded away pretty fast. Can't be upset with that beautiful golden/amber hue, though.
Smell: Definitely got the citrus notes upfront. Although I could pick up a hint of the malty undertones, I felt I had to really search for them.
Taste: Pride & Joy is a very balanced beer. Goes down nice and easy. Nothing too overpowering here. A little on the bitter side for the aftertaste, but the malt and hops have a nice little conversation, balancing each other out. Definitely mild.
Mouthfeel: Smoooth. Doesn't linger around or leave your mouth super dry. Again, definitely mild.
Overall I thought it was a solid brew. I don't think I've ever been disappointed with anything from FFF. It's not necessarily a beer I would wet my pants over, but I wouldn't be upset if I had to drink it. The beer definitely fits the description of "mild." Incredibly balanced in every aspect. Would have maybe liked it to be a bit more crisp, but I can't be upset over what it isn't.
