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.

A-Nice cloudy orange, some carbonation, two finger head.

S-Caramel malt, with a bouquet of citrus hops. Some grassy hops as well.

T-Starts with large malt profile, which includes caramel. Some citrus hops rounding it out with a tad bit of bitterness.

M-Light to medium bodied, nice carbonation, perhaps over carbonated.

O-A decent beer, it is mild although I think it could use some more bitterness.

Pours golden orange with a nice sized head. It has a general fruity smell with a slight hoppy hint. Taste is very pleasant, very nice citrus hops on the first sip that lead into a nice deeper orange lemon like aftertaste. Mouthfeel is pretty spot on carbonation slightly high. Overall an amazing session beer I wish we had this year round by me.

Bottled served in weizen glass

A - Golden amber with 2 finger white head with excellent retention and excellent bubbly lacing

S - Citrus herbal and floral hop wheat mild notes

T - Strong herbal, pine, wheat, follows note, very nice. Slams you in the face with citrus, peppery spice and herbal notes, then backs off all most too soon with a nice smooth only mildly bitter finish.

M - Medium body, moderate carbonation. A lot of warming EtOH.

O - Pretty good, just think this mild APA has too soon a finish

Poured from a bottle into a sam adams perfect pint glass

Appearance: Burnt orange color with 1.5 fingers of nice offwhite head, dissipates a little quick.

Smell: Nice fragrance, citrusy with apricot and toffee. Also has some good hopiness to offset the fruit notes.

Taste: Nice and crisp, just enough hops and yet it isn't overpowering. Toffee and Citrus fruit that correspond with the fragrance.

Mouthfeel: Plenty of carbonation but it dissipates quickly on the tongue. It doesn't linger around the palate which makes it very drinkable.

Overall: Good session brew, i like the pale ale characteristics along with the fruitiness. Great on mild spring or summer evenings.
