Bengal Lancer (Fuller’s)

Light copper almost amber in colour, the smell is not heavy dry hops, its fresh but very malty and sweet on the nose.

The initial flavour is full and malty, caramel taste, similar to the warming nature of an ESB. But just when you are expecting further sweetness and spice it hits you with a powerful hop punch. Dry lingering hops remain in the mouth up until the next sip. That famous Fullers yeast bite is as present as ever.

8/10 A great beer, more malty than most IPAs, reminds me of a US style IPA or strong Pale Ale.

The Fuller's online shop is now open, with full online beer sales coming soon. Until then check out your local Waitrose or Occado who stock the full range.
