COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

fiulijn (20515) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 20, 2010
Hazy orange-amber color. The aroma is comfortably fruity and malty, elegant. Good caramel flavor; the yeast created a good combination of esters, light fruit, soft spice. Correct bitterness. Solid brew.

mcberko (17840) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 10, 2011
341mL bottle, pours orangey amber with a medium off-white head. Aroma of dry caramel malts. Flavour of dried fruits (apricot, orange), caramel malts and a touch of sweetness. Quite decent amber.

3.8
Oakes (17676) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 17, 2006
Hazy light amber liquid with thin head and gentle carbonation. Quite English in the aroma with crisp woody and herbal hop, light toast & caramel malt plus peachy, almost cantaloupy esters. The esters are prominent in the palate as well. The malts are sweet but bright, the hops moderate but with a mild flowery/foresty note that complements the rest of the beer quite well. Subtle, enjoyable brew.

Lubiere (13911) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 12, 2006
Golden orange ale with a thin white head. Light orange malt with fresh herbal hops, malt out of mash tun, fresh and pleasant. In mouth, a crisp malt with british hops. Medium bodied, well balanced. Thanks to Piscator32! Enjoyed with the Mtl Crew Sept. 9, 2006.

2.1
BeerandBlues2 (13321) - Escondido, California, USA - NOV 9, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear amber with a small, fizzy off-white head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is moderate diacetyl with light earthy hops and dates. Flavor is sweet malt and diacetyl, light hops and no bitterness with a sweet finish. Medium body and carbonation.

3.1
Sammy (12205) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 29, 2009
Volo. Light amber,with a thin white covering head, and some lace follows. Aroma is not rich, there is some hops and it is neutral at best. Medium mouthfeel, smooth drinking. Medium bitterness yet only 20 IBU. Later sips produce more maltiness. A mild brown plus, a prototype Canadian beer. Well crafted owing to its good balance, absence of distracting carbonation.

3.1
shrubber85 (11408) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JAN 30, 2015
Bottle. Buttery barley malt and light hay aroma. Golden yellow with moderate off-white head. Mildly sweet butter, barley malt and lightly bitter hay flavor. Decent.

2.9
BVery (10510) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - NOV 15, 2012
Bottle via trade with Andrew - thanks! Mild caramel malt and some dusty earthiness. Okay, but not really my style typically.
