minihame2 (642) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUL 1, 2016
Clear, golden colour and a thick tan head. Hoppy aroma, grass, pine, spice. Slightly bitter taste, floral flavours. Body is not that rich, kinda watery, low carbonation. Decent IPA.

ciocanelu (2536) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JUN 16, 2016
Clear golden color with white head. Aroma is balanced with sweet malt and earthy hops. Taste follows but with some more hop character, earthy and citrusy. Finish has more bitterness and also lingers in the aftertaste. Light body with the specific british minerality and medium carbonation. Overall it’s a decent english style IPA but nothing special.

Godt humlet, fint med engelsk humle det den bliver dejlig afrundet i det. Ikke meget sødme.

I bought a couple of bottles to try to culture up the yeast for homebrewing but wish that I had just bought the yeast from the labs. Lacking in aroma and bitterness, it doesn’t taste to me anything like the claimed bitterness levels just caramel taste. There is much better beer than this around these days.

Christos (5787) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUN 5, 2016
(Fuller’s Bengal Lancer) Bottle 330 ml at home as Fuller’s India Pale Ale, purple label. Served into a shaker, ABV 5.3% Deep orange coloured body, clear, with a small and thin white head sitting on top, low retention. Not much of an aroma, very faint citrs, some malts and marmalade. Taste is quite bitter, with metallic notes, marmalade, malts, some citrus and orange. Medium body, good carbonation. Decent I guess, far less than what I expected though.

Tony_Grayne (381) - Minsk, BELARUS - MAY 21, 2016
500 ml bottle. Labelled as Fuller’s India Pale Ale. Bottle conditioned. 5.3 % / 13.3 %. Pours rich amber to orange colour. Off-white 1.5 finger frothy head. Fades gradually. Leaves a thin layer on the beer surface. Aroma: gentle exotic fruits; passionfruit, mango, tangerine, some malts. Taste: raisins, malts, fruity citric, grapefruit, mild bitterness. I’d say it’s a calm IPA. I like some with higher IBU.
