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.

Nice caramel color but very light smell that doesn't tell you much. Mild ale is very correct. Pretty mild flavor that is nothing to write home about. Not sure what the fuss is about. Good beer for a mild ale. A little heavy on the fizziness which stuck around on the mouth for a bit.

Somewhat hazy orange with a tinge of copper or brown. Pours about a finger of foamy head with great retention.

Slightly fruity aroma, with subtle notes of citrus from the hops, along with some spice / grassy notes. Very well balanced by sweet caramel malt backbone, that also seems to contribute a hint of slightly burnt, buttery bread aroma.

Tastes more like an English mild or bitter accompanied with some very well-balanced hop characteristics throughout. The style/malt is definitely the body and soul of the beer, but the hopping adds a unique American twist without becoming hop-forward. Notes of caramel, toast, grass, and citrus.

Well carbonated, with a much more hearty feel and flavour than some sessions.
