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.

Pretty decent ESB/bitter. Not really a fan of this style, so yeah. It’s okay, but nothing more than that. Better than expected, though.

(bottle - 500 ml) Copper pour with a thin white head. Very mild caramel and malt aroma. Not much else. Slightly sweet but then turns bitter. Some odd sweetness but mainly just an overpowering bitter flavor.

serjaymz (124) - Istanbul, TURKEY - JUN 30, 2015
30/06/2015 @ istanbul. Bardakta maun-açık kahverengi arası, saydam. Şişe üstündeki 'deep golden ale' Tanımı ile çok örtüşmüyor.. Köpük ise kalıcı değil, açık kahve/beyaz (kırık beyaz). Koku beklentimden derin, karamel, kavruk malt yanında hafif turunçgil hissediliyor. Orta az gövdeli tadım damakta hafif baharat acımsılığı, malt önde. Kalıcılık düşük ancak kolay içimli belirli bir derinliği de olan bir İngiliz Ale'i.. Türkiye'den Gara Guzu Amber e benzer bir bira..

This ale is brewed in cooperation with the lead singer of the rock band Iron Maiden, which is a great supporter of British ales. Foam is rich and renewable and emits a nice malty aroma with hints of rye crackers. The taste is also weak malty with hints of rye crackers, but also weak flavor notes of a little honey and Earl Grey tea into play. The hops have little citrus flavor and contributes to good filling in the ale. As ESB could expect little more hoppy bitterness, but it is rather pleasant hoppy so the malt is not dominated by hops. Lovely ESB which unfortunately I enjoy too early in the evening. The right time had probably been ’2 Minutes to Midnight’.
