I found bulldog a wonderfully mellow strong barley wine type beer. Served chilled makes a wonderfully smooth drink. I have shared a few bottles with friends and they are of the same opinion as me. Its real ale to the bottom of the bottle!
Here in Dudley, [Black Country] it as been on sale for around six months, I hope it carries on being on sale!

Light red ambar with creamy brownish head. Smell is caramel and malty. On mouth is complex, malty and rich yeast. Hops are notorious and ver dry in the aftertaste. Nice beer and highly recommend it.

Caramellosa e frizzantina. Retrogusto di mandorla. E’ bilanciata dall’amarognolo del luppolo. Il portamento del cane sull’etichetta è semplicemente meraviglioso.

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.

Bottled. Copper colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is strong malts, some hops and barley. Flavour is malty, caramel, candy sugar and some slight roasted notes. The finish and aftertaste are dominated by a dry hoppyness. Good strong ale!

very enoyable, raw yet rich, strong yet sweet. It tastes old fashioned.. There us nothing slick or modern about this beer.

UPDATED: DEC 23, 2004 This was a funny one, looks quite pretty,dark orange colour, quite lively, but not easily noticable carbonation, with a huge white head, which tasted smooth and a bit peachy. Smells like caramel and butter. Tasted quite smooth too, not much of a flavor, but it was pleasant and fruity. The first sip was a bit off though, tasted very, very, metallic. After one more sips, that metallic feeling vanished. A fine ale, even if the initial impression (flavor wise) was bad. Might try it again, and if that metallic feeling was just because this was a bad bottle, this is getting a better rating.
Rerate: Well, tried it again. Seems I was lucky to have found it, because it seems that they have retired it. And I can nowsafely say that it’s a shame. No metallic feeling this time, just full taste of dried apricots. Very good ale.
