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.

Vighals (1962) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - JUL 23, 2015
Orangebrun klar med høyt beige skum. Lukter brunt sukker, karamell, fudge og rips. Middels fylde. Smaker søtlig karamell noe brent, blomster og bær. Balansert. Medium bitterhet kommer sent. Kjenner også alkoholen noe, spesielt i etterkant. Men en svært lettdrikkelig ale til å være på 7,1

Pours a clea ramber color, topped with a medium sized white head. Malty aroma, with some mild presence of fruity notes. Taste is sweet and malty, medum bitterness and some presence of alcohol. Not a bad one, but not that good either.

Tap. Appears a light red with a small head. Tastes a bit flowerish, a bit herbal with a nice hoppy finish, due to the dry hopping.

Benzai (9995) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - DEC 3, 2014
Bottle @ home, gift from my uncle Ino. Clear orange golden color, medium sized white head that lasts for a decent while. Smell and taste malts, a hint of dark fruit, lightly sweet, a hint of bitter. Decent body and carbonation. Ah well, it’s decent enough.

Diabobale (289) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - NOV 10, 2014
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 (25) - - NOV 2, 2014
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.

UPDATED: NOV 27, 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 è una birra che si fa bere, forse non vale quello che costa ma è una birra onesta, né più né meno.
