4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle 0,50L. Clear orange colour, with off-white, long lasting head. Aroma is hoppy, mostly citruses - grapefruit, some grassy flowers, herbs. This IPA is smooth, very good, similar to the Fullerís ESB, India Pale Ale or London Pride when weíre talking about bitternes. It has light bitter taste and moderate bitter aftertaste. I expected more bitternes, as it is IPA style. Anyway, very good beer.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Orange and apple fruity, yeasty, malt aroma. Slightly cloudy orange golden beer with briefly fine looking fluffy whipped off white head. Fine ground pepper bite with a full balanced body. Malty flavour with slightly herbal bitterness and orchard fruit sweetness. Further into the tasting citrus notes are more prevalent. Medium dry sweet malt finish. Subtle for an IPA yet moreish in itís intriguing complexity.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
500ml bottle. Pours a hazy dark gold, with a small yet lasting head, and excellent lacing. Floral and resin hops overlay a sweet caramel aroma on the nose. There is a hint of honey to begin, with very strongly bitter citrus hops soon appearing. Some lovely malt characteristics soon join, with hints of toasted sourdough playing through the hops. The finish is delightfully hoppy, with strong lemon notes. A wonderful balanced and appetising bitter.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled, 0.5l. Pours cloudy amber colour with medium sized frothy, long-lasting head, fizzy carbonation and some yeast residue. Hops and citruses prevail in the aroma, while flowers were also noted. Sour fruity and malty start is followed by long pleasantly bitter finish and aftertaste. Medium bodied, dry texture and lively carbonation in palate. Excellent!
Earlier Rating: 10/1/2011 Total Score: 3.9
Bottled, 0.5l. Pours pale amber with large frothy white head and lively carbonation. Aroma of citrus and grassy hops. Refreshing fruity taste with traces of grapefruit, rich mouthfeel and distinctive hoppy aftertaste. Full bodied with thick texture and soft carbonation in palate. Always worth of pouring another one...

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma: Huge citrusy aroma! Very hoppy, extremely appetizing. Some caramel notes that blend very well. Some exotic fruit, too.
Mouthfeel: Standard oily and smooth light body.
Taste: Very nice balance on a bitter character. Cookies, nuts, honey under a orange peel and grapefruit bitter flavor. Superb!
Finish: Long, bitter and peppery. I love it!
Overall: Excellent. Not sure if it is better than Fullerís IPA though.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bengal is not one of my favorite Fullers offerings, but still a good beer. It really tastes like a double hopped version of the ESB with the same flavor characteristics but with extra English hops. It is a nice beer, but I prefer the flavor of an American IPA.
