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.

imdownthepub (10661) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2009
Bottle, 330ml pasteurised from B&M, Southport. Amber with white head. A sweetish, malty aroma leads to quite a harsh, sharp alcoholic type flavour, no messing around, boiled and brutal on the palate. Some sweetness in the finish. Not particularly good.
