A dashing drop

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.

Bengal Lancer

Brewer's Notes

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.

Raise a glass

Even before it charged into British pubs, Bengal Lancer was an award-wining IPA. It proved itself worthy of a place in the Fuller’s portfolio by winning a new ale competition in Sweden.

Food Pairing

Spear chilli heat with Bengal Lancer

A beautiful golden colour, this beer has an initial sweetness that's perfectly balanced by an assertive bitterness.

The citrus and orange spiciness and smooth mouthfeel will complement the chicken and the creaminess in the dish. Its carbonation and bitterness will cut through the heat from the curry and cleanse the palate.
