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.

Strangebrewer (1097) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 12, 2016
bottle. Poured clear medium amber-orange with a thin white head. Bready malt aroma a little fruity. Medium bodied, crisp carbonation, bitter tart finish. Flavour of caramel malt, toasted and earthy, hops add bitter citrus peel with a peppery note.

wxman (1688) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - JAN 12, 2016
Pours a clear pale orange with a really nice creamy off white head. Aroma is fruity and grassy. Taste is sweet pale malt, some caramel, bread dough, lemon zest and just a tad of hop bitterness. A quality bitter.

Brentv (601) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 9, 2016
From can. Pours clear amber with a cream-colored small head. Lots of lacing on the glass. Aroma and taste of malts and biscuit, slightly caramel, slight lemon. Taste hovers between bitter and sweet, as the style should. Medium mouthfeel. Bitter finish.

weark (572) - Morges, SWITZERLAND - JAN 9, 2016
Bouteille - Légèrement ambrée avec une fine mousse blanche qui ne tient pas longtemps - Au nez, malté légèrement caramel, houblons floraux et légèrement tereux - En bouche une bonne amertume,les houblons se font moins présent malgré l’amertume, malt caramel - Corp léger, amertume moyenne / forte, carbonation correcte, amère et sèche - tout ce qu’il y a de plus britannique avec un peu plus d’amertume

Surprisingly decent beer. Quite malty, slightly citrus aroma, low carbonation, medium bitter, poor head. Really drinkable.

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2016 This tasted like premium British beer but no beer can compare any beer to mckeewines.

AntonyWilson (59) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - DEC 30, 2015
500ml bottle. Appearance: copper, low carbonation, cream head which dissipates quickly. Aroma: caramel, bready, stone fruit. Taste: peaches, bitterness does not linger. Malt provides a good back-bone. Mouthfeel: low carbonation with a crisp, clean finish. Low to medium body. Overall: easy drinking ale, despite Eddie on the label. Would have no issues having another.

punkska101 (1535) - Chambly, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 28, 2015
Bottle shared with Seb A: light caramel, light metallic. App: clear copper sparing white head t/p: med body with medium long bitter finish. Soft carbonation. O: really average. Still easy to drink but doesn’t do justice to the reputation of the band.

DanielBrown (4329) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2015
Bottle from brother Chris. Fairly standard Bitter. Has that purple malt taste. Thinnish, sweetish, sour sticky tangy. Plain.

UM02 (346) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 25, 2015
Nice malty bitter. Aroma and foretaste of roasted malts but a bit watery in the finish. Unexceptional but a lot better than the ACDC beer.
