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.

Clear dark coppery brown color with a decent tan head that persists and leaves some nice lacing.

The aroma is toasted malts, caramel, and a hint of chocolate.

The taste is also lightly toasted malt and caramel up front, hints of toffee, finishes with some dark chocolate, light to moderate hops in the finish.

Light to medium bodied, maybe a bit thin for the style but easy to drink.

Altogether a pleasant, but not spectacular brew, well worth a try.

Dark brown with a finger of foamy off white head. It smells pungent / infected. It tastes like skunked beer, maybe this one has just gone bad, I will not take another drink.

Received in trade from gregwilsonstl, thanks for the opportunity!
Pours a dark copper almost brown color with a huge frothy beige head that persists forever. Big caramel and toasted malt with a hint of chocolate and a touch of earthy hop to counter. The flavor adds some dark dried fruits as well. Pretty good brown ale.

Aroma is nutty, with hints of chocolate and roast. There's a bit of a metallic note.

Flavor is slightly sweet, nutty, with a hint of chocolate and a roasty bitter finish.

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.
