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.

Light amber clear beer with white head. Aroma: hint of malts (caramel, cookies, bread), hint of esters. Taste: light sweet from malts with light herbal bitter from hops. Palate: light to medium body, high carbonation. Overall: OKish bitter, BORING beer.

DSG (10579) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 10, 2016
Bottle sample at a tasting at Yoav’s place. Thanks Yoav. Hazy goldenj. Aroma of oxidation, cardboard, malt, honey, a bit of stale hops. Sweetish flavor with malt, a bit of cardboard, a honey note, and bitterish stale hops. Too old, but still pretty drinkable.

jjsint (2036) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2016
Bottle from Sainsbury’s, drunk at home. Golden-orange brown, alarmingly glowy. Clear with a microfilm of white head. Pleasant smell, some sprucey hops mixed with the caramel base of the malt. Taste is sweetly malty as well but none the worse for it, although the buttering turn at the end tastes a bit artificial. Not a great finish - slightly too astringent - and the body is noticeably thin, carbonation a touch too heavy. Not a world-beater but it’s got a fair bit going for it.

wombat23 (380) - Texas, USA - APR 1, 2016
Shared 16.9 oz. can. Pours a deep gold with an off-white head. Aroma is light malt and grass with some mild fruitiness. Taste is malt, caramel, bread, and very light citrus. I prefer this over its heavier cousin, Trooper 666.

darbeer75 (316) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - APR 1, 2016
Aroma: Initial positive impression with some fruit and hops fades quickly but still there; Appearance: hazy golden amber pour with white head that dissipates fairly quickly; Taste: smooth, not particularly complex; a little fruity with vague bitterness; pretty forgettable; Palate: light bodied with short finish; Overall: okay; would probably not buy again.

jamaty (1749) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAR 20, 2016
Cobriza clara. Adoma tostado, malteado, miel. En boca se bebe muy bien, ligera, muy malteada, pero compensada en parte con amargor cítrico que queda en los labios. Buena.
