Anheuser-Busch has created a new limited-time spring ale in Sun Dog Amber Wheat. Sun Dog is filling the shoes of Spring Heat Spiced Wheat, which is now offered year-round under the Shock Top Belgian White name. Jack's Pumpkin Spice Ale, Winter's Bourbon Cask Ale and Beach Bum Blonde Ale will still be available seasonally. Sun Dog's ingredients include caramel malt, which gives it an amber hue and subtle sweetness, and a blend of wheat and pale barley malts. The Cascade and Willamette hops, from the Pacific Northwest, and imported Hallertau hops, from southern Germany, provide the beer's hop aroma and citrus flavor. The brand's label depicts a dog wearing shades and shorts while holding a Frisbee. The beer, available in six-packs, contains 5.3 percent alcohol by volume.
