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.

Nose: big piney grass that quickly dissipates supported by grainy malt aromas and light fruits.
Pours hazy gold amber with a thin white foam cap. Big lace.
Palate: malty sweetness, grain, hints of treacle, graham cracker, and light fruit with a very pleasant hop accent on the finish. Slightly sweet with a finish suggesting an iced tea dryness.
Medium body and medium to medium low carbonation.
A light and sessionable easy drinking beer.

12oz bottle in a Guinness pub glass.

A- Poured a dark golden copper color with a dense 1f head. Slight haze. Rings of lacing.

S- Mild fruit and flowery hops with some sweet light bready malts. It smells a bit like brewed tea.

T- Light malt with some orange citrus hop flavor.

M- light body, good carbonation. Dry, mild hop finish.

O- I'd call this a good and drinkable session ale.
