COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 youíll find anywhere.

This beer tastes darker than it looks. I sense a strong smell of wheat, although in this beers case, it's Spelt in place of wheat. A good, drinkable beer that you might enjoy I'd you like the sweet earthy tones. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tasted on 4/10/14 from a capped 12oz bottle purchased at Frugal MacDoogal. Pours a pretty clear crimson amber with an average beige head that slowly recedes to a thick collar of lace, leaving sticky residue. The nose is some lightly bitter toasted bread with a hint of darker malt and some earthy hops. The flavor is features a bit more character with some caramel malt and the hops coming through with some spicy bitterness. The body is medium with average carbonation and a medium toasted malt and lightly bitter and spicy hops finish.

Amber color with some tiny flakes floating about. Aroma has some roasted malt notes along with a bit of caramel. Tastes a bit sweet and some phenolics are present as they are with many ambers. Average beer.

Bleh! Copper smell and taste. Ruined this amber ale. Not sure what it actually is supposed to taste like as a result.

Poured from a bottle a hazy brown with a very light white head. Aroma is slight caramel and malts. Taste is light on caramel, lightly sweet. Not a whole lot there, but not so little as to make this unenjoyable. Has a medium body feel and is smooth. This is just ok, but Iím beginning to wonder whether the amber ale style just isnít my thing.

Hey this beer is not bad. Its a cheap drink that tastes really good. Would recommend this to anyone wanting a medium bodied tasty beer. Its really a nice color if that really mattered. "Look at that guy drinking that awesome copper colored beer. He is cool." " Yes the color of that beer makes him look SO HOT!!." Anyway its tasty while your working but then again what beer is not. I would take this beer with me to a party for sure. Oh I dont go to parties anymore. This is a keeper. DOnt forget your BIG RED To hide the taste at work.
