British crystal malts give this beer its distinctly deep amber body and a nutty aroma that persists throughout the glass. The soft underlying hop bitterness is tempered with the flowery aroma of the U.K. Golding hop. Like its namesake, Bulldog Amber Ale is tough on the exterior but with a soft disposition. This malty morsel makes the perfect pairing to hot wings or hand tossed pizza. Serve in a glass at 4 degrees celcius. Unpasturized.

Hazy tea, tepid and thinnest white ring. Heavy diacetyl, light ash and tea. Flavor softer, low cardboard and orange, acidity high but carbonation low, stale end.

YigSvartka (106) - Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 3, 2014
Translucent red/brown, no head, served cold from a bottle. Caramel, malt intertwine to create a relatively sweet aroma which presents an accurate depiction of its taste. Light, fizzy, sweet, caramel, malt, with mild lingering hops. A nice refreshing beer, but nothing spectacular.

pictoman (608) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 9, 2014
Poured from 341mL bottle. Clear copper orange with off-white head. Toasted malt with a bit of caramel malt. Taste was more on the caramel malt side with some nice esters coming through. Light-medium body.

ljthiessen (511) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 30, 2014
Dark amber pour with a pillowy white head. Roasty caramel and light citrus aroma, some bready notes. Malty caramel and soft citrus flavour, sweet with a light bitterness, and slightly metallic. Very nice amber, and definitely better on tap.
