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.

Indra (2569) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - MAR 11, 2014
12oz. bottle. Aroma is dominated by toasty, bready, brown malt, with faint suggestions of caramel, milk chocolate, herbal hop and a touch of fruitiness from the yeast. Clear deep brown in color with a lasting, foamy, off-white head and copious amounts of lacing to match. Flavor profile is malty and toasty to start, seeing a touch of sweetness enter the picture and then surprisingly bitter (for the style), with a good bit of herbal, tea-like hop flavor and finishing dry and roasty, with faint coffee tinges late. Plenty of carbonation on the palate, with a slight mineral feel and a medium body. I get what they were going for here but it pretty much ends up being just another Brown.

Mora2000 (5346) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAR 3, 2014
Amber pour with an off-white head. The aroma has some toffee and nut notes. The flavor is more of the same with the toffee, caramel and nut notes really melding together nicely. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Crash_the_dog (117) - Fairway, Kansas, USA - FEB 21, 2014
Good looking beer, rich chocolate brown with a light blonde head. Mellow nose, with a roasted grain flavor, slightly malty. Flavor is straightforward, and mouthfeel is terrific. Not exciting, but nothing wrong with it either. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Medium dark brown, dark ruby highlights a smattering of cream colored head. Smells of tea, toffee, roasted coffee. Tastes are similar, not a lot of flavor. An ok drinking beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

strattonspeaks (113) - Springfield, Missouri, USA - DEC 12, 2013
Clear dark amber brown pour. Solid beige head with good retention. Decent lace. Aroma was a letdown. A little roast and a lot of grain. Taste makes up for it a bit. Nutty and roasty with little toffee hits. Had to really look for it, though. Medium bodied and easy drinking. Overall not too shabby.

phaleslu (5867) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 30, 2013
12 oz. bottle sampled at the Side Project release bottle share. Pours a rich amber color with a small beige head. Notes of earth, nuts, faint caramel- not much sweetness at all here. It also has little toastiness for a brown ale, leaning more earthy. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry mouthfeel. Good brown ale.
