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.

RichTheVillan (4163) - 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 (134) - 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 (821) - 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 (1141) - 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.

Piero1987 (686) - Iglesias, ITALY - FEB 2, 2013
Intense golden color with white head. Malt, caramel and alchol aroma. At taste is light sweet and malty, with caramel malt and honey flavour pretty balanced with fruity english hop.

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

AlchemikalGab (48) - 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, I’ve been told it’s very different, and worse). Drinkable enough.
