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.

Cask @ old bank of england, fleet street. Pours golden amber. Small white head. Biscuity aroma. Bitter, but not in a good way. Better than pride though...

In bottiglia da 50cl. Aroma di caramello, mou Al palato ancora in evidenza il caramello seguito da un amaro secco e leggermente erbaceo, che bilancia la dolcezza senza lasciare troppi sentori.

beeebon (241) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2015
Pours a copper colour with a small but long lasting white head. Aroma is citrus with sweet malt. Taste is nicely balanced sweet and bitter with quite a long dry finish. Pretty nice and decent!

heman (136) - Tychy, POLAND - FEB 25, 2015
Aromat głůwnie słodowy, po ogrzaniu lekki kwaśny. W smaku nic kompletnie się nie dzieje, niska, tępa, goryczka z posmakami kwasu izowalerianowego.

Ambro206 (214) - ITALY - FEB 15, 2015
Fullerís e le sue ricette rodate funzionano bene, anche se in questo caso non stupiscono Una IPA in vero stile inglese, color ambrato scarico, non esageratamente profumata, dalle note di caramello e miele con finale giustamente amaro, speziato ed erbaceo. Piacevole, non troppo carbonata, corpo medio. Buona birra.

torleifm (15) - NORWAY - FEB 13, 2015
Ravfarget med hvitt, holdbart skum. Fin humlearoma med engelsk humle, ellers noe svakt maltpreg med karamelltoner i aromaen. Lettdrikkelig. Fin balanse malt vs bitterhet. Litt metallisk ved oppvarming. Litt mye CO2.

Brewhemia (56) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 6, 2015
I wanted to taste an original India Pale Ale from the mother country, and I thought it would be plainer tasting than the Americam and Danish varriations and less hoppy. But I actually think itís pretty good and well hopped. So kudos to the old country! I tasted the bottle conditioned one by the way. The one called "Fullers India Pale Ale".

Iznogud (1207) - CROATIA - FEB 3, 2015
Bottle, 500 ml from Pivoljub, Ljubljana. Shared with Miro. Pours orange, white head. Citrus and pine. Dry and slightly metallic finish. Medium bodied.

jbruner (2732) - Athens, Georgia, USA - FEB 1, 2015
Bottle gushed when opened, pours a hazy hazy golden orange with fluffy white head that leaves good lace. Aroma of apple sweet fruit over sought earth and pale malts. Taste is more balanced, but still really sweet and toward the apple. Meh.
