COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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. Itís 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 Fullerís India Pale Ale.

Not particularly aromatic, but itís a lovely-looking beer and it has a distinct taste without being overpowering and light enough to be able to enjoy a few.

onceblind (6671) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 20, 2012
Tap at The Three Lions in Denver. Clear gold with a medium rocky head. The aroma was kinda biscuity with some light grassy "British" hops. Taste was clean and balanced with some appropriately zesty carbonation. Flavor starts grassy and hoppy, though not too bitter, then turns mildly sweet and malty with some pale grain and toast notes. Very balanced and a superb British IPA, ending just a little hoppy/herbal.

Alexus (241) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 15, 2012
500ml bottle. Clear golden color with a nice white head. Leaving nice lacing down the glass. Aromas of fruits (apricots?), mild spices, clean hops and malts. Flavors of sweet malts, a good dose of clean British hops. Smooth and easy to drink. I would like a little more of the hop flavor. All in all a good English IPA.

neongolden (1108) - LinkŲping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 8, 2012
(500mL bottle from the LCBO) Poured cool into a nonic pint, a pale amber with a decent white head that left lacing. Aroma was decently hoppy, smelled Old World with some lemon, pine, grass and a little bit of caramel malt. Flavour balanced between fairly sweet pale, biscuity malt with a hint of caramel and fairly zesty, lemony hops with moderate bitterness, finishes dry. Mouthfeel not thick but a little oily with soft carbonation. A quite English beer, not like American IPAs but fairly subtle, well-rounded and balanced, quaff-able.

bluebetty (1021) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 8, 2012
Bottle. Pours a light golden amber with creamy off wite head. Delicate lacing as the head slowly falls away. Aromas of light piney grassy hops and plenty of light sweet caramel. Flavours are initially quite sweet with light resiny bitter hop finish. Medium / medium light mouthfeel. Nice beer.

dEnk (4200) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 5, 2012
Bottle @ home. Aroma is fruity hops, seem American, some caramel, some spice. Flavour is medium to light hop bitterness, with a round and full hop flavour, proper palate, good balance. Very nice ipa.

Taste - golden pale malts...some biscuity malts...light sweet bit syrupy caramel..dash of honey...some light citrus hops....bit fruity....background of light bitter hops...well balanced...good subtle quite complex flavour...more sweet malty than hoppy
Palate - soft carb...medium body...light bitter sweet malt and citrus tangy on palate....oily texture...quite smooth. Finish - light citrus tang...sweet golden malts..some biscuit...bit of bitterness on the tail

jonno (2417) - JAPAN - FEB 23, 2012
Hand pump. Just a good honest strong pale. Full bodied, a little fruity but in check, dry with a solid crystal malt body. Nice soft hoppy finish. Easy drinking and then some.

erickok (5031) - Leuven, BELGIUM - FEB 18, 2012
Light amber body with beige soapy head. Light hoppy, spruce, and a soft base with red apple and cookies. Taste is also soft and nothing like modern bitter IPAs but certainly refined and easily drinkable. Does miss a fuller flavour though imho, even though I know it is how it is supposed to be. Well brewed but not as satisfying as I hoped. It did match well with my spicy chick pea soup. (50cl bottle)
