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: 3.75 | 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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A - 3.75 - deep clear brown/mahogany color. Half finger of off white head.
S - 3 - some hoppiness, bread, rice, not much else.
T - 3 - some hop bitterness, bread, rice, wet cardboard, nothing else.
M - 3 - light, way too light for a brown ale. Alc covered, aftertaste nil.
O - 3 - Nope. I'll pass on this one in the future. It's not very good at all.
