2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, from Systembolaget Nordstran as Fullerís India Pale Ale - not the beer I thought it was but had never rated Bengal Lancer so no loss, split at Colin and the Vikings tasting, Nol, Goteborg, Sweden 22/03/14.
Clear golden with moderate off white edgeing and spotting.
Nose is floral hops, citric notes, toasted malt, straw, bread dough.
Taste comprises more floral notes, bitter orange, straw, toasted malt.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close.
So so, much better on cask but RB wise I wouldnít have this down as an IPA regardless of bottle or cask, more an ESB.

3.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
See: Copper / Amber. Foamy white head which dissipates quickly.
Smell: Slight hop aroma, not very powerful.
Taste: Sharp hop, slightly malty. Hops definitely come through at the end.
Pallet: Medium carbonation, quite dry in the finish.
Very refreshing and easy drinking. Definitely a hop presence but not overly powerful. Could easily session.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber color, white head. Light fruity aroma with some spiciness, malty taste that lacks the usual IPA fruits and also the hops are not very good. Slightly unpleasant aftertaste. Maybe a spoiled bottle?
