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.

Nice dark amber colour. Big head which lasts long. Tastes like lager. Not much of palate. I hardly believe this is an ale.

AlchemikalGab (43) - Borgomanero (Novara), ITALY - DEC 29, 2012
On tap @ Molly Malone, Nebbiuno (NO) Italy. Served nicely, which is a rarity among italian irish-style pubs, pours a clear light amber colour, with a thick and lasting off-white head. Aroma of caramel with a little earthiness and spiciness from the hops, Very sweet, nice body, with a little bitterness to give balance, Soft carbonation, oily body, quite pleasant for a regular beer. The aftertaste lingered around for a while, with the characteristic earthiness. To me, this is one of the best products from the big industry (never tried it from the bottle, Iíve been told itís very different, and worse). Drinkable enough.

SheffieldSteel (115) - St Nikolai im Sausal, AUSTRIA - NOV 22, 2012
330ml bottle from Carrefour, Udine. Pours small frothy head. Copper dark blond colour. Aroma of boiled sweets and cough medicine. Taste is thick, full bodied syrupy alcohol with pronounced orange and cherry notes. Very light carbonation. Very sweet and very malty. Finish is bitter and lingering, with the hops giving a lasting spiciness. A nice strong ale but a tad too sweet for my liking. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
