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: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

12oz bottle served in a SN IPA glass

A - Pours a clear mahogany brown with a tight knit tan head. Nice rings of lacing with good retention.

S - Brown bread crust, yeasty, brown sugar, nutty, hints of oxidation, faint herbal hops.

T - Grassy hops are the first thing I notice which were not very present in the nose. Charred/toasted brown bread, some toasted toffee, roasted grainy barley. The cocoa-like bitterness is peppery and rounds out the toast notes well. Finishes bitter and roasted.

M - Moderate creamy carbonation, smooth feel, medium body.

Nice take on the style. Hop forward with a strong toast character.
