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.

Picked this up on a recent trip through Kansas City. Tasted 24 February 2013.

Pours quite dark brown, appearing opaque without light behind it. That light reveals red, deep cherry red. One finger of light tan head, good retention, solid fingers of lacing. Nice.

Smell is good. Warm, slightly buttery and toasty. Like a buttery biscuit. All in the malts, and all very smooth.

Taste is where this beer takes a downward turn. It's actually kinda bad. Dull, a touch herbal but almost flavorless, but for an unpleasant medicinal twang. Really not working for me. Not sure if I can finish this.

Mouthfeel is fine. But I want this beer out of my mouth.

Borderline drainpour. Not terrible, but definitely worse than okay. Strange thing is that several elements of the beer are actually pretty good. Not sure what happened with this one.

3.33/5  rDev -4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.5

Aroma: Light crystal malt aroma with some spicy hop aromatics. Just a hint of metallic copper. No DMS, no Diacetyl.

Appearance: Brown with amber highlights. Off white head with medium bubbles.

Flavors: faint hints of burnt malt, coffee, with a prominent spicy hop bite on the sides of the tongue. Overall the flavor is malt forward and sweet.

Mouthfeel: medium-light body with medium low carbonation.

Overall: a well brewed example of a brown ale. Probably fits best as a Northern English Brown, well brewed but nothing too memorable.

Serving type: bottle
