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.

On tap at the sanctuary. Was kind of excited but was pretty disappointed in this. A classic British style IPA. Some mineral quality to it. Not much hop and nothing to really distinguish it.

GregClow (3027) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 27, 2011
Bottle from the LCBO (as Fuller’s India Pale Ale). Golden-orange with a small creamy white head and a few floaties. Aroma of orange candy and biscuity malt. Very nice mouthfeel, medium bodied and soft, almost cask-like. Delicious moreish flavour, strongly hopped, with bitter-sweet citrus notes over a mellow caramel malt base. An excellent UK-style IPA, just loved it!

Kita (1598) - Koper, SLOVENIA - DEC 23, 2011
Bottled, 0.5l. Pours cloudy amber colour with medium sized frothy, long-lasting head, fizzy carbonation and some yeast residue. Hops and citruses prevail in the aroma, while flowers were also noted. Sour fruity and malty start is followed by long pleasantly bitter finish and aftertaste. Medium bodied, dry texture and lively carbonation in palate. Excellent!

Bottled, 0.5l. Pours pale amber with large frothy white head and lively carbonation. Aroma of citrus and grassy hops. Refreshing fruity taste with traces of grapefruit, rich mouthfeel and distinctive hoppy aftertaste. Full bodied with thick texture and soft carbonation in palate. Always worth of pouring another one...

wilderthanyou (758) - Guelph, CANADA - DEC 22, 2011
Pours a hazy yellow/orange colour with a short lived white foamy cap. The aroma is sweet malts equally mixed with hoppy citrus grapefruit notes. The flavour is also a balancing act of bready, malty, toffee, sweetness and grapefruit, orange rind, hoppy bitterness. Entertaining to the tongue and good drinkability.

rozsoma (589) - Győr, HUNGARY - DEC 18, 2011
Hab nélkül. Nagyon kesernyés. Szinte rézszínű. Van benne valami gyógyszeresség is, meg egy kis szúrosság mint a twisted thistle-ben. Nagyon száraz és komlós. Ez még egy hophead-et is megvisel.

dirkules (629) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 17, 2011
Hazy amber pour with a non-existant head, slighty fine and a touch soapy. There is good maltiiness, a bit nutty, wood, scotch aroma. Great smell. Taste is slightly pine and malt together, a tad light, but enjoyable. finishes slightly bitter. sticks around a bit but the breadyness lingers long. decent!
