Availability: Spring

Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

An unfiltered amber wheat ale with a slight caramel sweetness and refreshing citrus note. Brewed with Cascade and Willamette hops from the Pacific Northwest and Hallertau hops from Southern Germany, Hop Hound certainly lives up to its name. The amber hue results from the blend of caramel, wheat and pale barley malts.

Sun Dog Amber Wheat pours to an orange/gold color with a good deal of carbonation and it offers a pretty good head of foam for a summer beer product. The appearance is slightly hazy and the aroma that is grainy and a little bit fruity.

Sun Dog Amber Wheat offers a good flavor that alternates between wheat/grains, citrus hops, and light spice. Caramel notes are tasted up front, followed by the flavor of toasted malt and a touch of light citrus. There is a slight bite in the finish, the result of the crispness of the hops and the carbonation, followed by an aftertaste of lightly spiced hops.

Sun Dog Amber Wheat is a good tasting summer brew from brewing giant Anheuser- Busch. A-B already produces a few seasonal brews, but Sun Dog is a little better than the rest, with a body that is light but a taste that offers some distinct refreshment that is great for a hot summer day. The most memorable aspect of the taste is the contributions from the hops. Cascade, Willamette, and Hallertau hops combine for a nicely spiced, fruity, tangy combination. Not only do the hops give the beer character, they make it seem a little fuller- bodied than it really is. It makes Sub Dog Amber Wheat a pleasant malt beverage surprise from Anheuser- Busch.
