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.

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.

Nice floral aroma. Pours a medium golden orange. Mild hop flavors and a mild sweetness in the background. Excellent beer.

UPDATED: MAR 20, 2003 3/08/03: bottle. thick cream colored head. cloudy, medium orange body. floury, yeasty nose. lots of light honey flavoring. yeast taste but not overwhelming. also includes a bit of a perfumey taste- similar to sam adams' hops. a good beer although i expected more hops.

Golden color with a quickly dissapearing head. Flowery smell. Slight citrus taste, with a little bit of malt to balance it out. Not exactly an attention grabbing beer, but probably a good one if you are trying to ease someone into the world of good beer.

DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 6, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2003 transparent fool's gold color with just a small halo of white bubbles atop...very sugary, malty, maple syrup, and subtle sweet orange-like aroma..flavors were slightly malty with whispers of hop flowers, caramel, and semi-sweet,but thats about it...definitely not my style.

Pours a clear, orange color with a nice, persistent white head. The aroma is really, pretty good. Nice balance of malt and hops. An interesting sweet, spicy note, maybe cinnamin or grass or something. The flavor is good. The malt is a little lacking, but a nice hoppy finish. Good bitterness and bite. A great session beer. Good for drinking several pints.
