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.

Hi, 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! Alan

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.

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.

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

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!
