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.

Here, in my opinion, we have a great example of a hoppier-tasting beer done right. I figured this as a pale ale, but apparently it’s an ESB? Seems to be not nearly as complex as an ESB but okay... Appearance is amber/light burnt orange with a slightly puffy head. Aroma is extremely pleasant, like sweet rain with a slight hop scent. Flavor is well-done for a hoppier beer: a good dose of bitterness that is not offensive like many "craft" IPAs, with a solid malt foundation and a hint of the floral/spicy character of the English Bitter style. Palate is pleasantly dry, with a sharp bitter taste that doesn’t overstay its welcome. Overall, a very decent hoppy beer, though for my tastes, it’s still a little too hoppy. If you like this one, give Wychwood Brewery’s Goliath a try.

Flaska från styvbrorsan. Klar rödbrun med vitt skum. Doftar lätt av rostad malt, lite karamellig och fruktsötma. Smakar detsamma. Typisk ESB skulle jag säga... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Taste is a bit standard for this type of brew. Pour is a light amber with a thin head.

Clear brown-red, strong white head. Faint caramel-roasted malt notes. Somewhat watery, with notes of caramel and... umami? I sweat that’s some sausage in there. Must be the stroke kicking in. Anyway - okay, would go for another.

Pors golden to ruby brown, with minimum head, smell resembles dried plumbs, taste is not well balanced, little off and not quite there.

500 ml bottle. Pours a clear, golden orange with a very thin, off-white head. Aroma is toasted malt and caramel with a faint fruity note. Sweet flavour of toasted malt, caramel and a weak citrus note with a dry, bitter, hoppy finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. A fairly average Bitter/ESB.
