ok, first off...I donít get the name change. Sun Dog fits much better. Hop HOund makes it sound like thereís at least a little hoppiness to it. That being said, it was $10 for a case, so I didnít give it much thought. Itís a good lawnmower beer. Pours hazy orange amber with a yellow marble effect from the yeast not evenly dispersing. Big, fluffy off-white head. nose of citrus, papaya, a little soap, and malt. flavor tastes a little like unripe watermelon, with some wheat, malt, and caramel. aftertaste is watermelon-y again, turning a bit odd as it sits. It is what it is.

Draft. Poured a hazy orangey amber with a medium white head. Not much aroma -- just a bit of sweetness and a hint of hops. Not a whole lot of flavor either: starts harshly grainy, finishes a little doughy. Medium mouthfeel. Didnít know this was a AB product when I ordered it; will NOT be ordering it again.

Pretty decent amber. I had this right after I had the Michelob Ginger Wheat Ale so a nice glass of pond water would have tasted good after that. Seriously this one is not a bad beer. :)

Iím rather disappointed with Micholob for this one. Crazy burnt orange look with a non-descript smell. Tasted like a very bland, more bitter version of a Blue Moon. No reward in the aftertaste.

Poured a clear amber with a moderate frothy white head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Light sweet citrus aroma. Session beer that was better than I expected.

Barreras (931) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - APR 28, 2010
Pours an amber orange with sweet fruity aroma. A slight spice smell as well. Taste of mild caramel, very smooth and refreshing. Not a very complex beer, more of simple flavors and aroma. Beer is an easy drinker and a decent beer to enjoy.

I think this beer is very solid is a nice overall decent taste of caramel sweet wheat flavors and a touch of hops. not too bitter but the malts make up for it. slightly honey esque and soft on the tongue,

UPDATED: MAY 5, 2010 There isnít much in the aroma with this one, very mild...there is a bit of a hoppy aroma coming through, so itís not entirely void of substance, just close to it. Tastes rather smooth and bland. A small touch of hops, perhaps even a bit dough coming through on the palate. Finish is rather short. Overall, itís not terrible, but itís not something Iím hoping to have again.
