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.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2014 Surprisingly tasteless ale without a profile or clarity. Works best to wash down the food.

Kita (1027) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JUN 10, 2013
Bottled, 0.33l. Pours clear orange golden with thin tan-like head and lively bubbles. Aroma of caramel malt, vanilla, dried fruits, herbal hops and with light alcohol note. Taste starts with sweet and rich malt, then followed sour grassy and refreshing fruity. Mouthfeel is dry, although some piney spiciness is felt, too. Aftertaste is strong hoppy. Medium to full body, thick texture and lively carbonation in palate. Good doggy beer...

maeib (8627) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUN 9, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2013 Bottled 04/06/13. A classic brown coloured beer with a rocky white head and lace. A very very husky malty beer. Sweet strong and alcoholic. Old fashioned strong ale. A bit one dimensional. Not for me. Score 2.4
Subsequent rating scored 3.0. Average becomes 2.7

RichTheVillan (2688) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2013
Bottle from B&M Bargains; clear amber pour with big foamy white head, syrupy sweet aroma, taste is initially sweet very syrupy some maltiness that is struggling to break past the caramel sweetness only 89p so bang per buck is pretty damn good.

mecafilo (70) - Perugia, ITALY - APR 25, 2013
On tap @ Buskers, Perugia, Italy. Aroma: caramel, cereal and a bit of herbs, with some alcohol. Foam is short-lasting, but a bit of foam remains for longer. Amber color. Taste: quite bitter at first, but becomes sweeter as the beer warms up. Medium body, average carbonation.

Silvan7 (667) - Samarate, ITALY - APR 12, 2013
tap @ Prince of Wales, ITALY. Birra interessante, dal bel gioco dolce/alcolico /amaricato. Profuma di tostato e di caramello, con anche un decisa nota alcolica. Schiuma bianca sporca ma molto compatta, di breve durata. un sottile strato di schiuma invece rimane anche dopo parecchi minuti. Carbonatazione medio alta, di corpo tenue, consistenza oleosa, finale amaricato e lungo. In bocca è piacevolente calda con un bella rotondità. Non è molto equilibrata, perchè i gusti sono molto divisi, prima si avverte il tostato poi il dolciastro ed infine l’amaricato, ma non sono lgati. in complesso però è buona.

dnicolaescu (733) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - APR 11, 2013
Head and color ok. Aroma: some unrefined crude malty/graininess that gets worse as it warms up; and a bit of alcohol. The taste has the slight hint of alcohol and is dry and bitter first; as it warms up it gets sweeter and has a vienna/marzen-style bitter-sweet character, but with that crude cereal scent too. Unpleasant beer.
