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.

4.5/5  rDev +15.7%

A: Pours a great pale yellow, with orange hues. There is about one full finger of pure white head that settles quickly leaving a big froth along the edges of the glass.

S: The nose is big citrus. Lemon and grapefruit abounds. So must so, that it's all I'm picking up. Smells great.

T: It starts out really light and crisp. It's mild and wet. The citrus notes start to shine through, but it's not a big punch in the face. It's just tasty and delicious. The finish also has great citrus flavors without ever getting too bitter.

M: Light bodied beer. It's refreshing and smooth. It starts a bit sweet and finishes dry, but not overly dry.

O: I really like this beer. It's a great low(er) abv beer with tons of flavor. If this were available in my area, I'd be drinking this beer on the regular.

12oz. Bottle pured into a 1/2 liter mug.

Pours bright golden orange with 1/2 of fluffy white head. Really nice looking save for a few floaties. To be fair, I think this bottle is a few months old. No bottled on or best by date.
Nice pungent citrus nose. A little sweetness, some grapefruit, maybe pineapple.
Hops upfront on the taste, although not too sharp. A pleasant caramel sweetness follows it right up. Hints of pine, oranges, a little grapefruit, but sweetener citrus for the most part. A slight bread character. Wonderful balance.
Beer finishes dry but not too much. Sessionable for sure. In the same lot as Stone Levitation as a lower ABV for hopheads. This one is just a bit milder,
Only wish they distributed here in MO.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass

A: Pours a clear golden color with a slight amber tint. There is a foamy white head that fades to a fairly thick cap with moderate lacing.

S: This is a hop forward but balanced aroma. Sweet orange, citrus, and a touch of pine meld with caramel and toffee malts. Overall a very sweet smell.

T: Maltier than the aroma would have had me guess. Orange, toffee and caramel lead the way. Pine and grass are also present. There is a very slight roasted character. Overall light and sweet.

M: Medium-thin bodied with a good amount of soft carbonation.

O: A very drinkable pale ale, not because of a clean finish but because the flavors are so mild and pleasant. True to the label, a mild ale.
