Inspired by the classic India Pale Ales of times gone by, Fuller’s Bengal Lancer redefines Eastern promise. With a full-bodied flavour and spicy character, it’s an IPA that grabs the reins and leads from the front.
It 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.
Conjuring a landscape of sandstorms and sunsets, Bengal Lancer pours a pale amber colour. On the palate, orange, character is followed by floral and spicy notes from the hops – riding through to a satisfying finish of mild bitterness. Great with a curry, Bengal Lancer cuts through to refresh the palate and add its own gentle touch of spice.
