COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular (but not permanent). Also available bottle conditioned (at 5.3%).

NOTE: Originally developed for Systembolaget in Sweden as the 5.3% bottle conditioned version of Fullers India Pale Ale in 2009. Also released in bottles into some other export markets under that name at around the same time. Subsequently launched in the UK as Bengal Lancer and exported at 5.3% in bottle conditioned format to certain export markets under that name. The bottled version of Bengal Lancer and the 5.3% bottle conditioned version of India Pale Ale are the same beer, as is the slightly weaker 5.0% cask version. See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rDQNyaNLkQc for explanation.

Bengal Lancer is an exciting, classic India Pale Ale from Fullerís. Brewed to 5% ABV (5.3% in bottle), this ale has been inspired by the history and character of this traditional style of beer.
Bengal Lancer has returned to pumps for an extended period between Autumn 2011 and Spring 2012.
The beer is pale in colour, full-bodied with a distinctive hoppiness that marks it out as a true India Pale Ale.

Flaska frŚn SB. Den provade Ųlen heter Fullers IPA, ratingen styrs om till denna sida. Blommig doft med lite citrus och en hint av peppar. Parfymig smak med ytterligare lite blommor. Njae inte direkt en kioskvšltare.

Bottle 500ml, 5.3% abv. In denmark sold as India pale ale. Amber golden colour with medium head. Aroma like a pilsener. Taste is malty and floral with medium bitternes, a hint of sweetness too. Not bad.

b3shine (5333) - Indiana, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Draft to snifter. Looks good for the style; a transparent orange with eggshell head that steadily dissipates into sticky lacing. Smells of mild hops and grain. Tastes like it smells with a bit of (bitter)sweetness from the malt. Average on the palate with a medium-bodied mouthfeel. Definitely English.

w_adwersarz (138) - Cracow, POLAND - JUL 19, 2014
Koloru soku jabłkowego, z niewielką pianą odrobinkę krążkującą. Aromat słodowy, odrobinę owocowy. Wysoko wysycony, bardziej wytrawny niż niewytrawny.

PorterPounder (5471) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 8, 2014
Atlanta, Ga - Total Wine - Perimeter - 500 ml bottle. Pours a sparkling medium copper with a soft, thin but ling lasting white head that clings to the edge of the glass. Aroma is slightly boozy with some diluted Scotch Whisky notes, just a hint of juniper. Flavor is a bit boozy as well - especially considering the fairly low ABV. Pick up some diluted Scotch and water, light mint, just a wee bit of nice subtle spicy bitterness to keep it interesting. Mouthfeel has a nice spritz to it. Decent, but slightly underwhelmed. .

Bouteille 50cl de chez Saveur biŤre. IPA minimaliste, houblonnage trŤs discret & corps lťger, bref rien de particulier. BiŤre de soif.

500 ml bottle. Clear, light orange color, long-life creamy and rocky off-white head that never ends, moderate pine and grape aroma, light body, soft carbonation, sweet malty and powerful fruity bitter hoppy taste, pine and fruity hoppy palate. Easy-drinkable.
