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.

BillHick420 (424) - North Dakota, NORWAY - JUL 21, 2011
Amber with a white head. A balanced mix of fruity and caramel hops eith a refreshing floral note to it. Good, with a distinct aroma, but maybe lacking a bit on the bitter hops side.

BeerSkull (1286) - SWEDEN - JUL 19, 2011
Fresh floral hops aroma. Taste is the same with a vague shade of caramel malt. A bit rough and bitter in the aftertaste but only in a good way. A very good English IPA!

Jimthechap (1620) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 19, 2011
Plenty of sparkle in this golden beer. Off-white head subsiding gently. Unmown grass aroma, gooseberries and lemon juice. Bitterness goes hand in hand with juicy citrus and sweet golden malt. Not IPA for hopheads, but with good bitterness and full, lingering flavours, IPA for me. Very tasty.
