3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewpub. Poured a clear gold with a white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma had a strong malt profile with, hay, grain, bread and a bit of biscuit. Flavor had a bit of grass hops in the start, but the malt profile takes over with the beer finishing with mainly hay and grain with a bit of biscuit sweetness.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the brewpub. Ah, so here’s where the actual mild ale from Three Floyds has been hiding, since the Pride & Joy is 5% ABV. Pours a cloudy gold color, with a finger-thick bone white head. Aroma of fresh hops, wheat, apricot, grains, and pine. Flavor of straw, hops, wheat, grains,
and just a hint of bready malts. Light-bodied, with a watery mouthfeel and mild carbonation. My friend called it a ’hop delivery device’ for people who need to drive home. That’s not an inaccurate description for this nice mild ale, which is just a little bitter.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the brewpub (Munster, IN). A new beer.. Man, they are bringing them lately. Pours a hazy golden orange pour, glowing, near murky, you really can’t see through it. A small offwhite head dies to a decent film, laces lightly. Aromas are bready malts, a touch of toffee and biscuits, light floral hops, citrus, faint orange marmalade. Mellow, yet still there. Initial is light bodied with a touch of orange up front, light citrus, moving into bready malts, toast, lingering orange marmalade, light sweetness but nice zesty oils and citric acid touch moreso than sweetness. Light bodied and highly quaffable, light bitterness moves into mellow bready and citrus sweetness. Pretty flavorful considering the 3.5 ABV tag. I really like this, the flavors and balance, leaning towards bitter and dry, with mellow bready and orange sweetness, are really working for me. The world needs more well made Mild Ales. This really keeps with FFF’s style, getting citrusy flavors out of such a light beer. Light, a touch watery, but the flavors take care of it. Very nice Mild.. Possibly my favorite to date.. The orange influence wins me over and puts flavor in a beer that many just load with bread and biscuits with light florals. All that is there, but the orange zest and touch of acidity wins me over. The Hedonist scale scores this lower, but for me this is the perfect Mild.. I was literally blown away, even if on the Hedonist scale it isn’t as high..

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Local Option into a pint glass...Light clear orange with gold, a light off white head. Only rises half a finger gone quickly. Looks like a cask beer with a powder sugar head that settles fast. Light lacing...Super light aroma, light malt backbone of caramel, bread and nuts. a little hops on the back, boring!!...Taste is so boring, lightly sweet a little hops with a bitter aftertaste finish that is not good. Tough to drink a pint of this. A very subpar english mild not worth having.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
GABF 2010. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a fairly well-formed white head. The aroma has FFF’s trademark herbal and citrus hop profile along with some bready malt notes. The flavor has medium sweetness with pale malt and cereal grains, bread, and a pretty good herbal and citrusy hop bite. Medium-light bodied with average carbonation. A nice flavorful true session beer from FFF overall.

Quite sessionable. not as hoppy as gumballhead. more of a bready tropical fruit presence. would drink all the live long day.
