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.

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown! / Waikato, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 9, 2010
Bottle. Pours amber with almost no head. Pure apricot marmalade on the nose. Flavour is wheat bread and apricot jam. Medium bodied. Rough finish. One dimensional - liken it to an apricot wheat beer - strange.

DanielBrown (3966) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2010
Bottle from Global Wines, Bearwood. Smells not too good - a bit caramel, a bit like wet cagoule. Flavour is a bit too strong and slightly sickly, with a sweet nut kick. Not terrible, but not something I wanr to try again.

johndoughty (4114) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2010
Bottle. Its a long time since I tried this one and was very surprised to see it on the shelves again. Hoppy aroma upon opening with a pale yellow appearance.Slightly bitter with a medium body. Pleasant although not sure if it was as good as when I first tried it some years ago.
