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.

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.

poured a hazy copper with an inch of foamy white head. aromas of grassy and piney hops, caramel and brown sugar. tastes very bitter up front with a sweet toffee/caramel like finish. a very light tasting pale ale with lots of sweet malts. light bodied and very fizzy on the palate. honestly, this is a great summer lawn mowing beer!

Pours a cloudy dark amber color with a two finger bright white head with good retention and lacing. The aroma has grapefruit, oranges, citrus zest, and caramel.

The taste is just like the aroma. Grapefruit, oranges, orange zest, and caramel malt. Hop forward, with a bit of sweetness for balance.

Light bodied, well carbonated, and so easy to drink. I still have the rest of the 6 pack to finish, and I look forward to it.

Thanks again to BDEE for this one.

Poured into a tulip. Leaves a good two finger heading. Slightly lace than amber in color with a good off white colored heading. Good retention with a some soapy rings around the glass after each sip.

Smell at first is all citrus, after a few more swirls of the glass a bit of pine and fruit come into play with a decent doughy aroma.

I am getting alot of lemon at first with a kind grapefruit background. Very sweet malt chracter with a subtle bitter pine taste. A little dry in the finish.

Medium bodied, good cabonation. Good balance and a slight buttery slickness in the finish.

A good session beer nothing spectacular but nothing bad either.
