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. Pours golden amber with a thin head. Mild sweet and bready malty, light fruity notes, light hoppy bitterness, and an earthy and grainy finish. Not bad.

Poured from a bottle, San Diego. Weak aroma. This is a subtle beer, in the English style. The flavor is citrus-heavy, with a hint of hops. Pleasant, drinkable beer, like an English ale but with more acidity than most.

DylansDad (326) - NEW ZEALAND - JAN 23, 2015
Nothing wrong with any of the individual components of this beer - the flavours and aromas - it’s just that they aren’t strong enough and don’t come together as a cohesive whole, resulting in a thin, watery lager-like body. Thought it would have more balls.

La botella es llamativa. El. Sabos es muy similar a una Ale. Suave con un toque afrutado. Buena adquisición para la colección

1 pint .9 oz bottle, pours a nice copper, low carbonation with thin head. Nice malt flavor with hints of citrus. A very nice ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

4.7% ABV. British bitter. Nose is sweet and reminiscent of boiling cane sugar. Strong malty notes impress themselves on the nose. No head. It disappears into a thin rim of light soapy foam, that only a haughty British ale can pull off. Nicely carbonated with a good fruity body that boasts ripe apples and berries, and then a languorous turn to reveal plenty of bitter hoppy leg. Yum! The finish is strangely laager-like, almost weirdly and coincidentally like Tiger Beer.
