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.

In bottle. Pours a golden colour with a decent white head. Aroma of caramel, grassy hops, yeast and alcohol. Similar flavours with moderate carbonation, light CO2 prickle and an oily mouth-feel.

Beermack (725) - London, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2012 50cl bottle. Pours deep gold/orange with bright white head - not much lacing. Aroma of grass, pine resin, slight citrus and floral notes. Good balance of malt & hops, tongue coating pine resin at the fore, followed by caramel and biscuit malt, ending with a fairly sharp zing of citrus tinged bitterness. Good traditional English IPA.

Aroma is of sweet, fruity hops with some peach, lychee and passion fruit. Nice texture, just sweet and thick enough to temporarily coat the tongue. Flavour gives juicy, fruity sweetness at the same time as refreshing hop.

kevinsenn (1665) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 21, 2012
500mL bottle from LCBO. Pours clear golden yellow, until you reach the sediment. Mild aroma of caramel and English hops. As for taste: not sure I agree with the "ESB" classification. It is more bitter than an ESB, and lacks the caramel malt flavours. It is as much an IPA as it can be with English hops; quite bitter, no big malt backbone, and metallic English hops. A fine effort, but I think Iíll stick to IPAs made with American hops.

laiti (7789) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 21, 2012
50 cl bottle @ Salhojankadun Pub. Rated on 02.06.2011
Aroma is somewhat hoppy with flowery notes, some toffee, caramel and hints of honey. Flavour is somewhat malty with caramel, flowery notes, hops and some toffee. Rather typical British IPA.

Brodies_Best (265) - Auckland Central, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 17, 2012
Pours golden with frothy off white head. Aroma more malty than hoppy. Taste is floral hops followed by bitter dryness then sweetness, more dryness calling for another swig...

Sizzler80 (502) - Dublin, IRELAND - JAN 14, 2012
Dark amber with a good white head, one finger. Lots of malt and hops on the nose with hints of citrus and wet grass. Tangy from the citrus, bordering bitter. Slightly dry with the grass coming through. Quite smooth and silky with a very faint hint of liquor and caramel sweetness. The malt and hops carry the beer all the way. It tastes like another one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

olsvammel (4939) - ÷rebro, SWEDEN - JAN 8, 2012
On tap at ÷÷WF 2011. It poured a clear golden liquid with a minimal white head. Smell and taste of gras and flowery hops. Very easy to drink and would be allot better served as a full pint rather then the sample I had at the festival.

Pours a clear gold with nice white head. Aroma is subtlety hoppy and well balanced. Flavor is refreshingly simple and bitter. Nice beer.

ladnewton (1694) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2012
Cask at the Basketmakers Arms in Brighton, on 2nd January 2012. Amber with hardly any head and no lacing. Caramel, malt and alcohols in aroma. Sweet in-mouth with hoppiness undercutting this sweetness. Grassiness late on before a bittersweet aftertaste develops. Medium to full body, and light carbonation.
