Pours orange-tinged copper with a thin (fizzy at first) head that becomes wispy. Some lacing sticks.

The smell is of mild caramel with some, slightly roasted, bread.

The taste is of mild caramel, a little water in the middle, finishing with a mild sweetness balanced by some tea-like leafy dryness.

It is light and crisp. Pretty smooth.

Nothing particularly "special" but it's a mild amber ale that is easy enough to drink.

12 oz bottle poured into a Duvel tulip.
No date or info. 5.0% ABV, 10 IBUs.

(Bottles are pending label approval and are expected to hit market early-to-mid fall.)

A - Vibrant clarity shows off the gorgeous bronze color nicely! Enkel Biter pours with an ivory-colored pile of foam that settles to a thin skim with traces of wispy lace on the tulip.

S - Musty and earthy beginning, Enkel Biter is unique right off the bat! Toasted wheat and amber malt have a nice dryness that's balanced by sweet caramel undertones and overlapped by yeast nuances. Fermented by a Belgian strain, dark fruit esters and light spice notes arise from a hearty swirl. Hops are merely hinted at with just a trace of citrus on the finish.

T - Enkel Biter's flavor offers the same balance the nose does; toasted malt, Munich-like, with a balanced caramel sweetness on the finish that marries well with the yeast esters the Belgian strain provides. Nuanced dark fruit and traces of spice trail across the tongue.

M - With minimal hop presence, the balance almost seems to come more from the blend of malt and yeast with the sweet juxtaposed to the dry. Leaning towards being medium-full bodied and very smooth, Enkel Biter goes down very nicely, but not something I would consider quaffable.

O - 3 Sheeps takes a new approach to amber ales with a great blend of malt, minimal hopping, and a subtle Belgian yeast strain that offers delicate nuances rather than beating one over the head. Friendly to the palate in more ways than one, Enkel Biter is quite a nice departure from the typical American Amber!

Serving type: 12-ounce bottle. No freshness date.

Appearance: Poured into a pint glass. The color is hazy amber with a ruby/grapefruit tint. A finger of eggshell-colored head left a spotted skim, ring around the edge, and a little lacing along the glass.

Smell: While allowing the beer to warm in the glass, I could smell a fusion of caramel, toffee, and cocoa from about three-quarters of an arm’s length away. Up close it smells a lot like a British pale ale: lots of toffee, caramel, toasted malts, molasses, rye bread, and grass. Needless to say, it is very inviting.

Taste: Much spicier than I was expecting. The rye is really powerful. The beer’s website mentions Belgian yeast and I’ll go with it (what the heck?). Underneath and overshadowed are caramel, toffee, bready toasted malts, and grass. I do not pick up any molasses, though. There are hints of honey and fruity esters, though.

Drinkability: Though it is flavorful, I was expecting something different from the aroma. I wanted a rich, malty, British-style pale ale. But whatever. It is what it is — which is pretty tasty and drinkable.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Y'know, I enjoy the label art and the intriguing name, but I hate it when those two things come to me without any text with some sort of explanation or backstory or whathaveyou. Regardless, this stuff pours a clear sunset amber topped by a finger of dirty white foam. The nose comprises straight grains, light toffee, flowers, mild greens, and a pinch of powdered sugar in the deep. The taste brings in more of the same, minus that whole powdered sugar thing, but plus a stronger grain component, even drier than before. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, I can't say this is something I can recommend, whether or not style is even taken into account. It's too grainy for its own good, and, beyond that, it's just kinda there, kinda very meh.

I really enjoyed this beer. Poured into a Capital brewery pint glass. Solid off white head that measured about 3/4 of an inch, some light lacing left on the glass. Smell is rich with a yeasty bready, malt scent to it. Tastes delicious. Very light hopping, with a smooth malt flavor and a great light yeast tinge. My only problem with this beer is that it feels a little thin. On the whole, I'm happy with it, and look forward to trying more from 3 Sheeps.
