Light amber-orange colour. Fruity British yeast aroma and flavour. Light bodied. Not dark enough for me.

The weakest Floyds product that I have had. Golden color with a faint hoppy citrusy smell.Overall flavor is lacking and weak.

Brown in color. Subtle sweetness and some caramel. Decent sipping brew and I think one of the only milds I've ever had.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bright golden color with a light white head. The nose is mostly citrusy hops with a mild maltiness and just a touch of orange. The body contains a dusty, raw hoppiness that I just don't love. There is some light citrus and fruitiness, but they don't ever get juicy or exciting. The malt is almost absent in the body, finishes with a resiney, somewhat woody bitterness. A mild the really isn't that mild, one sided and uninteresting.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Malty nose, lightly floral accents. Copper hue. Small beige head. Caramel up front. Lightly sweet, light bodied. Almost butterscotch like. Hops are faint and in the distance. Not terribly impressed, but this definately a gentle session beer with supperb drinkability.

This didn't really taste like a mild, but as it says it is a good session beer. Very drinkable. It had a slight malt taste with floral hops overtones. Not very deep and flavor seemed to remain the same at any temp.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I found that the son of Alpha to be weak in flavor, but strong in aftertaste. Bitter without a good bite. It even looks like a weak beer- too pale and small head. I think I'll stick with stronger ales.

This was a dissapointing first beer from the brewery that has so many great ones. Nothing that really jumped out at me in any aspect of the beer. The head was kind of thin, as was the taste. I can only hope that the other beers from Three Floyds are better.

Ok, perhaps I have this on the brain, but this brew made me reminisce about my high school days, getting high behind the grocery store. Very flavorful, not one I'd call a session ale though.
