Review by Rob
This golden ale takes its name from Northern India’s first regiments of cavalry – a dashing band of lance-bearing horsemen immortalised in folklore, film, and now a Fuller’s favourite.
Yet while the inspiration for Bengal Lancer comes from afar, this is an English-style IPA, brewed with home-grown hops and malt.
Inspired by the Bengal Lancer cavalry regiments during the time of the British Empire, this India pale ale is made using traditional English malt and Goldings hops to deliver this distinctively hoppy and superbly refreshing beer.
As this beer is bottled conditioned, we recommend it is stored upright and poured carefully.
Bugger, this was stored horizontally in my fridge wine rack. Oh well, good colour, smell, the hops are reined in on this one, think of an IPA then turn the volume up to 11, this has good depth of taste and unfortunately I necked it, I’d worked up a sweat and this went down a treat.
This is a very good benchmark of an IPA from Fuller’s. Recommended for you to go out and find. Don’t forget to store it upright mind you, as that’ll make all the difference ;o)
