COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular (but not permanent). Also available bottle conditioned (at 5.3%). Bengal Lancer is a traditional India Pale Ale, pale amber in colour, distinctively hoppy and highly refreshing. It’s notable for floral and spicy notes from the hops, and a finish of mild bitterness. A version of Bengal Lancer is brewed specifically for the export market, known simply as Fuller’s India Pale Ale.

Tony_Grayne (113) - Borisov, BELARUS - MAY 21, 2016
500 ml bottle. Labelled as Fuller’s India Pale Ale. Bottle conditioned. 5.3 % / 13.3 %. Pours rich amber to orange colour. Off-white 1.5 finger frothy head. Fades gradually. Leaves a thin layer on the beer surface. Aroma: gentle exotic fruits; passionfruit, mango, tangerine, some malts. Taste: raisins, malts, fruity citric, grapefruit, mild bitterness. I’d say it’s a calm IPA. I like some with higher IBU.

AdolfoCC (112) - Veracruz, Veracruz, MEXICO - APR 9, 2016
ASPECTO: de color ámbar con algunos destellos naranjas a contraluz, se observa ligeramente turbia y ligera actividad de carbonatación; corona de espuma blanca de buena retención, con burbujas compactas y algunas abiertas. AROMA: lúpulo herbal es lo que reslta sin mucha intensidad, notas cítricas discretas, cierto dulzor en aroma con notas de caramelo y miel. SABOR: amargor moderado ligero de entrada, atrás notas herbales ligeras cítricas del lúpulo y resalta la maltosidad con notas de caramelo y miel; el retrogusto un poco del lúpulo herbal discreto y amargor ligero, seco y no astringente SENSACIÓN: cuerpo ligero, ligeramente oleoso y carbonatación moderada baja. RESUMEN: una buena IPA estilo inglés que se apega, recomendada.

Desverger (6954) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 31, 2016
Bottle from Meny (Amager), Copenhagen - fuzzy golden orange pour with decent white head. Fruity and hoppy, with citrus tangerine, grapefruit, biscuit malt backing, some pine, herbal hoppy bitter finish. Surprisingly very good.

Scopey (11533) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2016
Bottle at my work. It pours golden – amber with a medium white head. The aroma is grassy, floral, dull citrus peel, earth and biscuit. The taste is dry upfront, bitter – sweet, orange rind, grassy, floral notes, touch of soap, pepper and white bread with a firmly dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. This is actually pretty all right for a UK-style IPA. Decent.

Butelka 500 ml. Ciemnozlote o malej bialej pianie. Aronat cytrusow trawy szyszek sosnowych miety. Smakuje podobnie- z lekkim goryczkowym finiszem .Niezle wysycenie podkresla smak i orzezwiajacy charakter. Dobre

Lively carbonation, tastes similar to Fuller’s ESB and 1845 with a little extra bitterness.
