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.

Butelka 0,5 l. Lekki aromat słodowy i owocowy. Kolor złoty, idealnie klarowny. Piana jasna, drobna, zostawiająca ładne ślady na ściankach szkła. W smaku słody i lekki biszkopot. Goryczka na niskim poziomie pojawia się po słodowym odczuciu. Nasycenie niskie, do średniego. No i ten Iron Maiden :-).

RobBestwick (603) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 8, 2014
Light citrusy aroma. Pours with a light copper hue, medium carbonation and an off white head. Clean malty flavour with some lemon notes. Mild bitterness in the finish. Drinkable but a little bland. Great bottle design though.

lesifflebiere (1355) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 8, 2014
Liquide cuivré à mousse faible, avec un nez de noisettes et de boisé, et un peu de fruits rouges en conclusion. Texture mince et limpide. La bouche est encore plus fine que prévue, avec des céréales blondes et un goût aqueux, mais avec quand même des houblons présents, et des malts en trame de fond. Au final, c’est une bitter pour débutants, sans réel défaut sinon sa grande timidité. Disons que c’est meilleur que le swill d’AC/DC.

nimbleprop (5211) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 5, 2014
50cl bottle bonused to me pours a murky orange with some soapy, white head. Nose has orange, some stale malt, a little dough, some honey. Flavor has a lot of fresh honey (not good for a bitter), some lemon and orange, but mostly just honey candies. Slick finish.

Cerbier (276) - - NOV 1, 2014
0,5l Flasche. Bräunliches Bier mit kleiner Schaumkrone. Riecht angenehm nach Toffee und Caramel; schmeckt auch so, dazu kommt eine angenehme Herbe und zum Schluß wird es leicht bitter.

Bullit (4030) - Burgos, SPAIN - NOV 1, 2014
From bottle, as Iron Maiden Trooper, in Irish pub Cafe Escocia’ in Zaragoza, almost next to Chinese restaurant Taiwan´. Someone’s having a laugh. Copper coloured, with an off-white head. Nose is caramel, light grassy, bit of biscuit. Flavour of caramel malts, relatively hoppy, bit of grass and citrus. Finish is slightly sweet and bitter. Nice one.

pivnizub (9034) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - OCT 26, 2014
Bouteille(as Iron Maiden Trooper) Nearly clear, stable lacy and creamy White head; sweetish fruity and bready-malty nose with a small amount of hops underneath; mild sweetish-bitter flavour, really soft, but pretty light bodied; short fruity and mildly hoppy finish. In opposite to the band’s Music: a very tame performance...

Syfher (116) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 25, 2014
Bottle of 50 cl.Nice but not relevant taste. Very nice colour. Her weakness is the poor palate and, as said before, the taste which is nice (notes of caramel) but very light.
