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.

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...

Golden orange, hazy with a thick cap of khaki foam that stayed and stayed. Massive lacing. Smells of mild orange pith, caramel-nutty malt. Taste is moderate orange peel/citric hop bitterness balanced perfectly against a caramel-biscuit-nutty malt body. Medium-light body, crisp carbonation, creamy-tingling mouthfeel. Clean, dry finish. Bright and happy, easy drinking and very, very delicious. I'd suck this down by the case if it were available here.
