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.
