Bengal Lancer - Fuller New India Pale Ale

The Fullers website says the "Bengal Lancer is a brand new, classic India Pale Ale from Fuller's. Brewed to 5% ABV, this ale has been inspired by the history and character of this traditional style of beer."

The inspiration is from the the Bengal Lancers who have their origins in the 1700s when the nawab of the state of Awadh, in today’s northern India, raised Bengal’s first regiments of cavalry.

Available exclusively in a select number of Fuller's pubs during February, and further free trade outlets in March, Bengal Lancer is a fabulous addition to our seasonal ales range.

The beer is pale in colour, full-bodied with a distinctive hoppiness that marks it out as a true India Pale Ale.

I have been drinking quite a bit of this over the last couple of weeks - served at the fleetwood pub in the city.

Colour of the beer is similar to Pride, I can taste its of the fullers breed of beers, however it has a very powerful fruit and sweetness that I find makes this quite a distinctive drop. I had no idea this was a 5% beer as it really slips down the hatch very easily and probably not a great idea to drink it all night unless you're prepared to get tiddly....
