Three Floyds "Pride & Joy"
Three Floyds Brewing Company - Munster, Indiana USA
Amber Ale (ABV 5%) (IBU 42)

[Best served in a Shaker glass]

Rating: 3.6/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 14/20

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...
