COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bulldog is an award winning strong ale that was first brewed for the export market in 1947. The traditional recipe and maturing process of "warm conditioning" which takes place after fermentation, has been deliberately retained to preserve the strength and quality. The beer is dry hopped and the distinctive mellow flavour of Bulldog Strong Ale allowed to develop slowly.

Una strong ale decisa. Ben strutturata e molto corposa, rotonda. Aromi caramellati e di cereali, a tratti erbacei. al palato caramello e biscotto e buona amarezza dei luppoli

Blastomorpha (9) - - NOV 2, 2014 does not count
Nice amber colour and the one-finger thick head, but quite lacking a distinct aroma, out the 330ml it smells like a cheap supermarket beer honestly. Fortunately tastes better, even if it has a very strong bitter end for the first sips.

eduardovl (925) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
330ml bottle served in a tulip glass. Enjoyed in Italy. A: Pours a dark orange to amber color. Clear. Forms a medium yellow creamy and persistent head. Lots of spotty lacings left in the glass S: Strong caramel in the nose. Quite fruity too. Notes of wood and scotch. flowery hops T: Sweet upfront. Quite bitter end. Strong notes of toffee, caramel malts, wood, scotch malts. Nice bitter stingy end M: Medium body. Medium carbonation. Hoppy bitter end O: Good drinkability. Good scotch malt character. Not bad [ BA Review @ 3/30/2013 ]

Partivo senza pretese, alla fine č una birra che si fa bere, forse non vale quello che costa ma č una birra onesta, né piů né meno.

teorn88 (2436) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2013
33cl bottle. It pours a one-finger off-white head that fades slowly to a thin layer, leaving some lace. Clear amber color. Malty/fruity nose. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Flavor is malty with a malty/cidery finish. Decent at most, good alcohol kick

Fashawn (168) - Montesarchio, ITALY - DEC 1, 2013
Bevuta alla spina presso il pub "Compagnia del Prosciutto", Benevento, Campania, Italia. Birra ambrata, non troppo bella all’aspetto ma nemmeno brutta, con schiuma fine e poco persistente. Pochi aromi, riconosco il malto, un po’ di luppolo e poco altro. In bocca si dimostra una "bitter", una birra amarognola ma onesta, sicuramente non tra le piů raffinate al mondo ma comunque piacevole.
