Notes/Commercial Description:
Three Blind Mice is inspired by our favorite qualities from English brown ales, German altbiers, and Irish reds. Mother’s trio of beer connoisseurs sipped away many a night, working to find this ideal combination. Mother’s beautiful brown beer is medium-bodied with caramel, toffee, and subtle chocolate malt flavors—all balanced by moderate hop notes and a clean, dry finish.

Three Blind Mice combines components of several malty beers for the unique brown beer experience you've been missing. After lots of research to find the perfect styles for our base, the clear winners were the lighter body and caramel characters of Irish red ales, the soft chocolate and toffee flavors from English brown ales, and the hop component and balance of German altbiers. We used traditional elements from each beer style and added our own touch for one incredible brown beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Poured a clear, light brown color with hints of red. It had a small, off-white head of bubbly foam.

S - Smelled of mild chocolate, caramel and some roasty malt.

T - Good sweet caramel with some toffee and light chocolate flavors. Nice grassy bitterness.

M - It was very crisp, sharp and smooth. A medium bodied ale with a dry, clean finish.

O - This is a pretty nice brown ale. A nice brew by Mother's.

Had this on tap with Sushi in Joplin tonight!

Pours mahogany with some tan head that drops away fairly quickish. Okay lacing & head retention

S: Some herbal hoppyness & faint toasty notes

T: Toasty malt & herbal hops up front. As this warms, a bit of roastyness comes through as well along with dryness & more toasty notes. Finishes semi-crisp with some toasty sweetness

Medium bodied, slightly over carbonated along with nice balance

An easy drinker that needs a little more malt depth & hop snap to make this a good Alt, would buy this again though...

A: pours a clear copper-brown with a finger of off-white head that fades into a thin ring with little lacing

S: dry roasted aromas with some nutty notes as well. Slightly sweet caramel malt notes bring up the finish.

T: dry, roasted nut flavors dominate with some faint chocolate notes and a slightly bitter and charred finish.

M: medium body and carbonation, this beer could benefit from a creamier body.

O: an alright beer, though nothing special. I'd like a bit less bitterness and a creamier body.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Side poured with standard vigor from a bottle into a pint glass. No stanges here, just pint glasses.

Appearance - Pours a clear reddish brown color, like that of fall leaves in a pile. Decent one finger head with minimal retention and lacing. Cool packaging and back story, I like the idea of the brew.

Smell - Toffee, malts, caramel, almost a wood smell in the brew is interesting. Light hops notes.

Taste - The caramel and toffee certainly make an appearance here, along with the light hops. Very delicate, not too overwhelming in any direction. The caramel and toffee washes over the palate, followed by malts and finishing with the hops.

Mouthfeel - Hop finish, smooth, medium bodied and medium carbonation.

Overall - A decent beer. I do like the packaging, it looks really cool. But it is just an average beer. I would drink it again, probably not going to buy it again. Just nothing really exciting at all about it.

12 oz bottle pours a clear, light brown color with a nice float of tan head. Nice retention and lacing.

Nose is some earthy and burnt toffee malt with a fairly significant grassy hop aroma. This beer smells pretty unique, I am not sure if I have had anything quite like it before.

Lots of malty flavors ranging from biscuity to caramel to even some chocolate. Hops are mostly on the back end with a fair amount of bitterness. Yeast throws out a few light fruit flavors and a bit of bread. It is not as rich as it looks or smells, but the body is solidly medium. This beer is a little beguiling, odd little critter. I like it well enough, and always glad to try a small, new brewery. Could use a few improvements, mainly some richness and sweetness would be nice, but overall Im pretty happy with a six-pack purchase.
