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 Fuller’s. 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.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 6, 2011
Bottle from Rodney Kibzey, brought back from England. Pours an attractive copper-orange with a white head. Nose is quite American smelling, citrusy and floral with some resin in the background. Not a ton of malt. On taste, very firm bitterness with a strong citrusy component. Somewhat bracing and unexpected. Dry finish. Very good beer over all!

mattphilips (802) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 24, 2011
British Store, Budapest. Ez tulajdonképpen egy remek angol ale, nagyon finom gyümölcsösséggel, megfelelő keserű lecsengéssel, na meg a többi előzetesen várt ízhatással. Nagyon jól csúszik, szeretnék pub-ot látni Pesten, ahol akárcsak ehhez hasonlót tartanak csapon.

bhensonb (10734) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 17, 2011
Bottle from Waitrose. Pours golden amber with a foamy 2 finger beiged head. Aromas of floral and citrus over very light caramel. Med body. Flavor is definitely malty, and it’s fairly floral. It is bitter, and compares very favorably with US East Coast IPAs. Drinks quite well.

beerisgoodforu (992) - Nřrresundby, DENMARK - MAY 9, 2011
Bottle. Pours a copper/ pale amber color with a small white head. Aroma is quite hoppy for an English IPA, with notes of citrus, faint/subdued grapefruit, sweet malts and some breadiness. Flavor is again quite hoppy for an English IPA, with a decent amount of bitterness, along with the citrus and grapefruit, and the sweet and bready malt. The body is medium with a lightly dry mouthfeel. Overall a really solid English style IPA, way more bitter and hoppy than your average English IPAs.

inbirraveritas (1216) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 7, 2011
Tükrösen rézszínű angol ale, a tipikus, ujjnyi vastag habbal, amely a végsőkig tartja magát a tetején. Az apró buborékokkal pezsgő nedűből édes, gyümölcsös és gyantás illatok szállnak az orrba. Közepes csípősséggel és édes, karamell malátás ízzel indul a kóstolása, a középső részben feltűnnek a citrusos és gyantás zamatok, melyeket narancshéjat idéző ízvilág kísér. Hosszan tartó, édes-fűszeres, komlós befejezését citrusok festik alá, amely után a fenti narancshéjas íz tartósan megmarad a szájban. Testessége enyhén szirupos, nagyon jól itatja magát ez az igen jól kiegyensúlyozott és élvezetes főzet.
