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.

Clear amber, cream head. Yeasst, cereals and caramel, light honey aroma. Light sweet taste with a hint of caramel and mature fruits, dry herbal bitter ending and strong bitter aftertaste.

Partivo senza pretese, alla fine è una birra che si fa bere, forse non vale quello che costa ma è una birra onesta, né più né meno.

teorn88 (1923) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2013
33cl bottle. It pours a one-finger off-white head that fades slowly to a thin layer, leaving some lace. Clear amber color. Malty/fruity nose. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Flavor is malty with a malty/cidery finish. Decent at most, good alcohol kick

Fashawn (71) - Montesarchio, ITALY - DEC 1, 2013
Bevuta alla spina presso il pub "Compagnia del Prosciutto", Benevento, Campania, Italia. Birra ambrata, non troppo bella all’aspetto ma nemmeno brutta, con schiuma fine e poco persistente. Pochi aromi, riconosco il malto, un po’ di luppolo e poco altro. In bocca si dimostra una "bitter", una birra amarognola ma onesta, sicuramente non tra le più raffinate al mondo ma comunque piacevole.

Bottiglia da 33 CL, colore ambrato chiaro, schiuma fine che sparisce presto, il sapore prevalente è quello del malto

dynamiteninja (1511) - Richmond, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2013
Bottle. Golden amber body. Thin white head. Nose is bread, malt, fruit, alcohol. Taste is sweet. Dry finish. Tastes kind of cheap, a little bit like Gold Label. Can imagine would taste quite good ice cold in Italy (its principal export market) however.
