Lead the charge for Bengal Lancer
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.
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.
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.

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.
