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.

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.

Enjoyed on tap while up in that area for Thanksgiving, review is from notes.

A: 2 finger slight off white head on a hazy copper and crimson body. Little retention, some lacing.

S: pine, citrus, caramel and floral. Nice full aroma as expected from the makers of Zombie Dust.

T: nice malt presence with a slightly bitter hop note from the pine and floral notes.

M: medium body and moderate carbonation.

Overall: another nice offering. sessionable almost with the 5% ABV. do these guys make a bad beer?

[Best served in a Shaker glass]

The pour was a medium amber with a brownish hue and an average sized (1-2 finger) white frothy head that lasted a good while, slowly reducing to a thin cap and small collar with some good sheets of streaky lace.

The aroma was of a floral hop, a grain malt and a mild earthy yeast with notes of citrus (grapefruit and orange peel) and a mild apricot sweetness.

The taste was mildly bitter with a hint of orange from the start then progressed into a much bitterer hoppy flavor with a good citrusy grapefruit taste at the end. The flavor lasted a decent duration being mostly of a bitter citrus taste.

Mouthfeel was just beyond light in body with a mildly dry texture and a moderate carbonation.

Overall a fantastic Mild Ale with a really nice hoppy feel to it...
