look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a dark brown with a nice white/tan head. Nice lacing but the head is dissipating too quickly.

Smell: Roasted nuts, toast, caramel, dough.

Taste: More of a floral hop, with the slightest hints of the smell.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied, a little low on carbonation.

I like this beer a lot. I like the hop and toasted/roasted combo. I wish I could taste more of the roasted/toasted with the hop. This beer won't satisfy any cravings, but it is very enjoyable anyway. It makes for a tasty session beer.

Sundog is an Amber ale. This beers aroma has a Carmel scent with also a malt scent to it. It was a medium light beer. It taste like a fall beer. The wheat taste really came out in the beer.
