BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Mother's Brewing Company
Missouri, United States

Style: Altbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.50%

Availability: Year-round

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.

a deep ruby/mahogany pour with a finger of creme colored head, great retention. smells of chocolate, pistachios, toffee. the flavor is of slightly bitter toasted grains, dark chocolate, faint hint of dark fruits (plum mainly), a bitterness that is almost unidentifiable hits you towards the end.. almost a burnt caramel flavor. medium in body, moderate carbonation, has the typical brown ale feel.

not a huge fan of this one.. nothing special really, a bunch of off flavors and smell that don't really blend in well together. i'll sick to their ipa's for sure.

Pour is a burgundy, oxblood color. Aroma is a bit weak, malty and non descript. Taste is pretty clean with notes of chocolate, slight toffee and roasted malt. Mouthfeel is thin, but enjoyable for an easy drinking brown. Overall, not the best brown I've had but easy drinking.

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...
