Sundog is an ale whose amber color is as deep as the copper glow of a Lake Michigan sunset. Its Biscuit malt and Fuggle hops give it a toasty character and a subtle, malty sweetness. We believe Sundog is the deepest, richest amber you’ll find anywhere.

Scrapersnbeer (1531) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 22, 2013
Aroma is toasty, buttery, and nutty. Deep, hazy looking orange. Initial sweetness, lengthy dry middle, mellow starch finish. Easy enough to drink, yet it gets heavy as it goes.

nuplastikk (5174) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 9, 2015
12oz bottle. Attractive thick burgundy red-brown body, unfiltered. Respectably steady, foamy, off-white head. Big doughy malt tones. Not unlike a brown ale in some respects. Nutty. Kind of has an English feel to it. On the lighter side of full bodied. Pretty good.

Block (1762) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - FEB 21, 2015
I don’t know about this one. It looks right, but something doesn’t quite taste right. A little off. Caramel flavor throughout, really dry.

DialSquare (3581) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 31, 2014
12oz bottle from Pace High Carryout. Amber brown pour with a thin cream colored head. Aroma of roasted grain, nutty. Tastes of sweet caramel malt, nutty, herbal, citrus, biscuity. Not an amber fan, but this was solid.

chinchill (3229) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 5, 2014
12 oz bottle poured a deep, red-amber with an oversized off-white head. I had to wait for the head to die down a bit before sampling this amber. Aroma: the earthy Fuggle hops work great in the flavor but not so well for my nose. Flavor: rich and malty; lightly sweet but turning mildly bitter by the aftertaste which also has a touch of hops. Approaches 8. Feel: very smooth; near medium body; Medium, soft carbonation. O: a wee bit more malt and hops than your average amber. Nicely done.

TheBear11D (363) - Michigan, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Sundog pours a deep rusty copper with a decent beige head that lasts a good while. The aroma is toast and caramel. The flavor is toast and caramel as well. This beer lacks complexity. It is a fairly malt forward amber that is pretty easy to drink, but it fails to make a distinctive impression. Overall the beer is average.

Tap @ TacoMac Windward. Dark copper, thick rocky foam. Toasted barley malts. Well balanced, toasted grains. Well made Amber Ale. Finishes dry. (4228)
