Tap Handle #33: Michelob - Sun Dog (Hop Hound) Amber Wheat

A whimsical tap that seems more like summer than spring due to the sunglasses and shorts. I guess I'm just used to cold Northwest springs.

Introduced in 2008 by Michelob for Anheuser-Busch, Sun Dog replaced Spring Heat Spiced Wheat, which went to year-round status. Brewed in Anheuser-Busch's Fort Collins, Colorado brewery, Sun Dog is an American amber wheat. Weighted average on is 2.49 out of 5, and more than one reviewer refers to the smell as "puked-up bananas." Yummy.

Note: Sun Dog has been renamed to Hop Hound Amber Wheat. The taps are identical except for the name on the label. In fact, I sold my Sun Dog, which was a little beat up, because I received a brand new Hop Hound.
