Poured from bottle into a standard pint glass.
Chill-hazed gold in color, with a big cloud-deck of off-white foam.
Aroma-Faint toasted malt, hop note
Taste-Herbal, earthy hops, touch of spicy yeast. Subtle flavors in the English fashion. Very drinkable and refreshing.

500ml bottle dated best before July 17th, 2014. Poured into Imperial nonic. Slightly hazy medium-gold color with a frothy off-white head. Moderate retention and splotchy lacing.

Aroma is biscuity malts with floral and earthy hops. Light spicy hoppiness. Slight grassiness, controlled diacetyl buttery aromas, and cracked grain. Ever so slight hint of fruity esters.

Flavor is light and well-balanced, leaning slightly towards the malty side. Buttered biscuit and fairly grassy/earthy. I have a feeling that this is supposed to be slightly hoppier, but since we're still before the best by date (even if just barely), I don't feel bad about reviewing. Slightly dry, spicy finish.

Mouthfeel is especially pleasant. Medium bodied and light-medium carbonation, about fitting for a bottle-conditioned English IPA. Soft and creamy mouthfeel

Overall, this is a good but not thrilling beer. My palate tends to lean towards English styles, but Bengal Lancer doesn't excite even me. Perhaps a fresher bottle may change my mind.
