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.

November 2, 2014

Draft/growler, weizen glass

A – Dark brown, fairly clear. An inch of slightly off-white foam on top, moderate retention. Somewhat bubbly.

S – Floral hop aromas with moderate bitterness showing. Light chocolate, mildly roasted grains. Warm, dark brown bread, a touch of pumpernickel.

T – Toasted dark brown bread, not particularly bitter from the malt. Some minor roasted coffee and a light semi-sweet chocolate backbone. Hops are somewhat herbal, moderately high, with well-balanced bitterness holding it all up.

M – Moderate carbonation, enough to scrub the palate. Bitterness as much from the malt as the hops, very pleasant.

O – Somewhere between doppelbock, Northern English brown, and brown IPA, this is an interesting entry for any of those styles. Regardless of genre, really an excellent, very drinkable brew.

Served in a shaker at Yard House at the Legends in KC KS

Fluffy head, clear dark brown/amber.

Aroma is strong malt,a little bready and a little chocolate. Earthy and slightly spicy from the hops.

Smooth, wonderfully balanced, malt forward but with a solid hop backbeat.

A great example of an American brown ale.

Wonderfully malty mixture of goodness. The matinees features are complex with what seems to be a layering of flavors. Simultaneously, the brew has a moderate mouthfeel and finishes lightly.
I'm a fan!
