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. Itís 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 Fullerís India Pale Ale.

I wanted to taste an original India Pale Ale from the mother country, and I thought it would be plainer tasting than the Americam and Danish varriations and less hoppy. But I actually think itís pretty good and well hopped. So kudos to the old country! I tasted the bottle conditioned one by the way. The one called "Fullers India Pale Ale".

jbruner (2841) - Athens, Georgia, USA - FEB 1, 2015
Bottle gushed when opened, pours a hazy hazy golden orange with fluffy white head that leaves good lace. Aroma of apple sweet fruit over sought earth and pale malts. Taste is more balanced, but still really sweet and toward the apple. Meh.

ManVsBeer (5337) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2015
Bottle from Booths, Media City. Slightly hazy golden-amber in colour, with a few bubbles for a head. Has a lovely light hoppy and fruity texture and taste for a beer that is over 5%, and plenty of nose in this respect too.

Drank as a cask. Nice, smooth and not that strong. Something you would expect at a British pub.

dnicolaescu (1107) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - JAN 15, 2015
BOTTLE 50 CL as ĒFullerís India Pale AleĒ (Bottle Conditioned) at 5,3%. The aroma is sweet fruit/marmalade and light zesty hops. The flavour is also fruity sweetness and hops, with medicinal notes and aspirin-like bitter finish. Not bad.

NancyBoyDIY (5) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2015 does not count
A potentially divisive beer. There is no denying its charms: crisp and finite after-taste, wonderful hue, clear bitterness and hoppy attack. Is there anything that tips it into greatness, though? The juryís out. It is difficult to fault it in any area, but how does it stand against the true greats? Perhaps with a louder voice, it could really contend, but, one canít help but feel, work may still need to be done. Enjoy with your family, friends and most certainly on your own. Donít shy away from making this a staple of future sessions.

GraffitiVandal (106) - Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 9, 2015
ENG: 500ml bottle from DeVine store @ 104th St, Edmonton. Poured into the glass. Light orange opalescent color with medium tan head. Aroma of citrus, caramel, herbs and grass. Taste of hops, hay, a bit citrusy and a bit caramel / malty. Quite balanced for an IPA (but maybe thatís because itís British). Quite large saturation, but still easy drinkable. Overall very mild character, but interesting and enjoyable beer. ///~~~/////~~~/// ///~~~/////~~~/// ///~~~/////~~~/// ///~~~/////~~~/// ///~~~/////~~~/// PL: Butelka 500ml zakupiona w DeVine w Edmonton. Przelana do szkła. Jasno-pomarańczowa, opalizująca barwa ze średnią, jasną pianą. Aromaty cytrusůw, karmelkůw, chmielu oraz ziůł i trawy. W smaku chmiel, siano, cytusy i odrobina karmelu, słodu. Dość zbalansowane jak na IPA (ale może to dlatego, że to brytyjskie piwo). Dość nagazowane, ale nadal bardzo pijalne. Podsumowując, piwo z delikatnym charakterem, ale interesujące.

An average bitter with malty, spicy tones but resulting in a disappointing finish - not an IPA IMHO. Rated by BrewTom
