Marko (4872) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 8, 2012
Ogiís, of course. Orangey golden body witha medium sized slightly off white head. Slightly oily peach jam nose. Empty malty taste with a light herbal hopiness, the peachiness shows up again. Too dumbed down, unimpressive, and yet so much better than the last two English ales that weíve had before this.

pootzboy (1690) - Hopville, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 3, 2012
On Tap: Deep gold color, substantial long lasting cap. Soft carbonation. Fruity-grassy aroma. Full bodied, front side is Marris floormaltiness and some succulent fruitiness balanced with long boil Kent Goldings, some earthiness, herbal tones, goes to a clean bitter finish, A full flavored traditional UK styled IPA which is very smooth in delivery and easy to have a couple.

Tide (2927) - Espoo, FINLAND - APR 27, 2012
Amber color, medium white head. Smooth taste with citrus, pine and some bitterness. Quite ok, but doesn't stand out from the mass.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 18, 2012
In short: A bready, citrusy and leafy pale ale. Decent.
How: Bottle 500ml (with label ĎIndia Pale Aleí, alias here on ratebeer). Consumed relatively fresh a few weeks after the beer became available in Canada
The look: Almost clear golden orange body, some small particles, small white head
In long: Nose is orange muffin, leafy hops, some grassy notes, some vegetal notes. Taste has white bread soaked in citrus juice, sweet dough, soft cookies, wet grassy notes. Bitterness level is low-medium. I was surprised to see how Ďnot-crispí this beer was coming from Fuller, really felt a bit doughy and yeasty which is very unusual from this cleaner-than-clean brewery. Overall this was an unexceptional but pleasant refreshing beer that was also nourishing. Decent beer. Nothing spectacular but very easy to drink, and I like to drink a bunch of beers while reading a good book just to confuse my brain on whether or not I hate it.

Martin243 (1008) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2012
Pint at the Parcel Yard at Kings Cross station, London. Golden amber, with a tight white head.Biscuit and tropical fruit in the aroma. Nicely balanced on the tongue, hop bitterness develops as you get down the glass. Mild carbonation, slick mouthfeel. An enjoyable "quencher".

Before I talk about the Bengal Lancer I must state this is the first beer Iíve reviewed in my new íMan Caveí. Iíve converted one of my garages into a bar: the first beer to launch it was íLa Chouffeí, a special Red Wine was also broached before this, my first íCaveí review. So, to my first of many new reviews. Brown 500ml bottle (bottle conditioned), best before 5 Oct 2012, drank and reviewed on 23 Jan 2011. The version Iíve reviewed is a 5.3% ABV one. Poured into my huge íJudasí stemmed tulip glass. A large white, foaming, bubbley head sat on top of a clear body, the colour of which was a bright pale amber, with a terracotta look to it. The aroma was of summer fruits, with a slight hoppy undertone, no malt smells at all. Tasted good, not overly hopped and the malt content didnít appear too strong either. A pleasant mix of flavours with none overpowering anything else. Sweeter than most IPAís and certainly not as hoppy as most, but very drinkable. Good carbonisation and well balanced, the alcohol hidden within the flavours. Pity the head died so quickly, otherwise a very good beer. Fullerís rarely let you down, another fine beer from their stable.

tseo (153) - Athens, GREECE - MAR 29, 2012
Aroma: Huge citrusy aroma! Very hoppy, extremely appetizing. Some caramel notes that blend very well. Some exotic fruit, too. Mouthfeel: Standard oily and smooth light body. Taste: Very nice balance on a bitter character. Cookies, nuts, honey under a orange peel and grapefruit bitter flavor. Superb! Finish: Long, bitter and peppery. I love it! Overall: Excellent. Not sure if it is better than Fullerís IPA though.
