500 ml bottle. The Trooper rocks, this not so much. Pours a ruddy copper color with a medium white head. The aroma is light fruit and toffee. Medium to low bitterness, sweet lemon zest, dry, very thin overall. Some biscuit and caramel. Bruce didnít pick this out. Itís alright though. A decent enough bitter.

500ml bottle. Pours clear copper. Aroma of citrus, grain, bread. Flavor is a slightly sweet maltiness, bread, lemon. Has a bitter finish. I donít really enjoy an ESB, but I love Iron Maiden, so I had to give it a try.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tallahassee, Fl - Market Square Liquors - 500 ml bottle. Sparkling medium copper pour, soft snow white head that leaves a nice coat of lacing. Aroma has some bready accents, a bit of toffee sweetness. Flavor has a nice subtle bitterness to it with some light citrus notes, a touch of Christmas spices. Mouthfeel has a decent spritz to it. Not bad - good session material.
