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.

12oz; Springfield; date was within two months; review a week later; it seems I do not care for brown ales, and this one had little aroma/flavor.

Poured from a relatively fresh bottle into a goblet. I will start unusually by saying that if you think hops have anything to do with this beer than you are just inexperienced..

Look: Pours a dark brown with a fleeting off-white head. I held it up to the light and the body glowed a glorious ruby red throughout.

Smell: Roasty toasty malt abound with a slight fruity yeast characteristic. The aroma is quite simple.

Taste: It tastes largely of simple malts with an upfront rush of fruity ale yeast. There is a touch of lingering brown sugar and toffee but again it is quite simple.

Feel: Medium body and not a lot of carbonation but it does carry it's weight well.

Overall: I did expect a bit more from this brew but there is a discernible quality and richness that opposes the general lack of expressive attributes.

The taste really did not hit me. I think it is a little too hoppy for me with a brown.

Malts fail to leave much of an impression. They come and go on the palate like the wind. Looks great though, it has a beautiful reddish brown hue. Mouth feel is pleasingly thick and frothy.
