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.

A - Poured a hazy dark golden brown body with a thin one-finger head that fizzed away pretty quickly.

S - Piney, resin-like hops with a strong caramel and bread-like malt character in the background.

T - Quite different from the aroma. The bread-like malt dominates the palate, with a quick burst of floral hops and a bitter/caramel malt on the finish.

M - This is where I was most disappointed. This brew has a very thin and watery mouth feel.

Overall, not bad.

I had this on-tap at Melt recently. Served to me in a pint glass. This beer draws a a clear, medium amber/copper/slightly golden color with a nice white head about 2/3 of an inch when first served that settles to a medium sized ring lining the inside of the glass with very nice lacing and a good cluster film layer of foam. Mild aromas of caramel malty sweetness and hop bitterness. the taste is pretty much the same with mildly sweet flavors of caramel malty sweetness followed by mild bitterness provided by floral hops. Has a slightly crisp, mainly smooth and creamy/frothy medium bodied mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. A good easy drinkin' mild ale here, but nothing all that special either.

Another great beer by FFF. Here goes:

A: I think this brewery has the appearance of its beers down to a tee. Clear, copped-colored beer with a massive two-inch head. Plenty of carbonation to boot.

S: Like opening up a bag of hops. I have no idea how FFF gets all their beers to actually smell like fresh hop pellets straight from the bag. Incredibly floral, grassy and earthy notes. Also some caramel malt to balance out the bitterness.

T: Great; follows the nose. Floral and grassy hops complimented by a nice amber-malt body. Both bitter and sweet.

M: Very good. Nice and toasty with a good amount of carbonation.

O: An excellent beer by FFF. Another winner, to say the least.
