Trooper is a premium British beer inspired by Iron Maiden and handcrafted at Robinsons brewery. Being a real ale enthusiast, vocalist Bruce Dickinson has developed a beer which has true depth of character. Malt flavours and citric notes from a unique blend of Bobec, Goldings and Cascade hops dominate this deep golden ale with a subtle hint of lemon.

Pours a 1" fluffy off white head that falls slowly with moderate lacing. Color is hazy light amber with abundant sediment in suspension. Aroma of yeasty bread, floral and citrus hops. Mouthfeel medium bodied with a somewhat damp finish. Flavors of bread dough, toffee, lemon and herbal hops. Overall: I thoroughly enjoyed this brew. Well made to the style.

Denne øl har et klart rød-brunligt udseende med et medium hvidt skum. Øllen har en maltet aroma og smager deraf med noter af karamel og en bitter afrunding. Medium karbonering.

Bottle into glass. Malty aroma. Pours a clear copper with white head. Taste is light bitter. Medium bodied. Too malty for my taste, but others may like it.

500ml bottle. Pours a clear amber with a finger of white soapy head with retention and much lacing. Caramel malts, maybe a little bit of something citrus, touch of Golding hop. Sweet biscuit and caramel flavour, but really quite thin on the palate. I had low hopes given the branding, but it was quite nice. (No Fullers, but not much is). A pleasant bitter.

Ciemno bursztynowe z beżową pianą. Aromaty gruszki, chleba, delikatny alkohol. W smaku karmelowe, trawy, lekkie palone słody. Pod koniec trochę cytrusowe. Lekko kwaskowe.

Bierdimpfe (501) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 8, 2016
Slightly veiled dark amber brown color with a strong amount of activity. Weak lightly creamy beige half a finger head that lasts for 5 minutes, with a good amount of legs. Aromas of bread and butter with faint malt and a hint of scotch. Flavors of rich bitter caramel, burnt sugar, roasted grains, faint citrus, grassy noble hops, toffee, herbal spices. Some sweetness while highly sharp and bitter. Smooth creamy full body with the perfect amount of zesty carbonation. Medium strength finish that ends quite clean, with a palate of noble spices, roasted malt, and zesty citrus. Overall very good quality craft offering tasty flavors with a strong sharp fresh feel. Almost as good as a Fullers ESB.

Bottle: i guess co-branding works, some prefer this over Fuller’s ESB. Flat and watery.
