Trooper is a premium British beer inspired by Iron Maiden and handcrafted at Robinsons brewery.

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.

thorongil2 (1551) - , Ontario, CANADA - MAY 24, 2015
(bottle) bright, deep amber colour is the nicest thing about this beer; aroma of noble hops with a touch on honey; balanced flavour with a long, light bitter finish

elpepe (3) - Moralzarzal, SPAIN - MAY 24, 2015 does not count
Una cerveza muy normal. Algo de aroma y gusto, pero lo más efectista es la etiqueta. No convence
