3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
At just on cool and into a Fuller’s pint. Looks good in the glass. Hazed over orange amber body, well conditioned and retaining of a loose, foamy, off-white crown. Herbaceous, floral and resinous whole hops on the nose; it oozes with ripe peach and apricot, pot pourri, sticky marmalade, vine clippings and a strange lick of sweet/sour sauce. A little caramel and fresh baked bread in there also. Quite a potent brew melding sticky and tangy citrus esters, bold toasted and biscuity rich malts and a backdrop of floral and herbal UK hops. A lasting bitterness on and into the swallow with a lot of residual fruit sugars reminiscent of candied orange, peach and apricot. Becomes nutty in the malt department late into drinking. The body forever meaty and chunky. Not exactly session stuff, but delicious none the less. A well made British IPA! (50cL, BB 28/06/13, Liquor Baron’s Ocean Reef)

330 ml. bottle @ home. BBF 07/04/2017. Clear orange, golden, off-white head, small head. Nose is very interesting floral hop profile, very oily, bitter marmalade & orange peel, floral hops. Taste is very UK style, oily, honey, toffee, caramel, tea with a floral & weeds hop finish. Oily body & soft carbonation. Very UK base & interesting firm hops. Lovely surprise. Good very solid basic beer with good hops & lovely classical UK profile. I wouldn’t mind trying this cask at some point. Basic offering but a very satisfactory one for me. Nothing overly special but very well made. Would make a good staple in my opinion.

Bel colore dorato carico, nella schiuma biancastra compatta e persistente. Ottimo aroma floreale e agrumato. Al palato piena e fresca, con ingresso di malto e un luppolo piuttosto limitato. Carbonazione medio bassa. Buona.

En mycket välbalanserad öl som alltid funkar, dock köps den sällan då den är aningen tråkig. Men den slår sällan fel.. Maltig, brödig, lagom humlad. Inte som de flesta tok humlade IPAs, vilket jag också gillar.

Golden pale color with a good head. medium carbonation. Nose is full of honey, spicy and floral with hints of citrus. Not a hop bomb, but keep in mind its not an american style IPA. Love the difference. Pretty tasty and not to strong. Great one!

**** Rated 10.04.2011 as Fullers India Pale Ale. Some admin has moved my rating from under that to "Bengal Lancer", yet these two beers are not merged. What gives? Anyway, I am moving this back now.**** Bottle. Amber body, brief head. Light caramel aroma with mellow hops. Remains a bit unadventurous despite the satisfying bitterness which reveals itself in the aftertaste.
