Sundog Amber Ale
(Look it hasn't been a month yet! I've still been drinking the beers, no worries.)
Sundog Amber Ale – New Holland Brewing Company – Holland, MI
This beer is immediately awesome because it has a howling dog/wolf on the label, but I can’t tell which because it is only a silhouette. (This was also an appropriate beer for the time because I was vacationing at the beach with my family/neighbors and I probably got way too much sun that day.)
Sundog, yesdog. I’ve had another beer by New Holland Brewing Company but the name/type of it evades me currently – I do however remember liking it. So good on Michigan, I only have good memories of the microbrews coming out of the big mitten. This amber ale tastes a little different from your normal amber, with a very bitter initial bite to it. This took me by surprise because the bottle description made it sound like it was going to be more of a caramelly malt flavor, which doesn’t come through until you get past the initial hop/barley taste. Overall, I really enjoy this amber ale, and it’s definitely a solid beer to be drunk alone on a night of board games at the beach with too many adults wandering around wondering where they put their John Grisham novel.
