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.

HPDalen (316) - DENMARK - JUN 21, 2016
Malty aroma, not much of anything really, just malt. Pours golden with a thin, white head. Bitter flavour, like unripe fruit. Tiny bit citrus. Medium body, average carbonation, short and bitter finish. Rather forgettable and boring.

Fra flaske på Mi2, Cardinal (Asko Rogaland ølmesse): klar dyp gylden, kort skum. Kokte grønnsaker pluss noe floralt aroma og smak. Totally forgettable.

Shared bottle labelled Iron Maiden Trooper at Mi2 Extended at Cardinal 06.06.16. Clear golden. Fine white head. Sweet malt in aroma and taste. Also some marmalade and booiled vegetables. Not great. Round mouthfeel.

Can. Cool artwork on can, I’ve always liked Iron Maiden artwork. Poured amber with a huge sudsy white head. Aroma was malty sweets, nutty. Sweet malty flavor. Liked this.

stevoj (3932) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 22, 2016
Can from Brewers Haven. Overall, comes off as kind of fruity, then malty. Not bitter at all. More sweet, caramel, toffee, butterscotch. Pours out with a huge fluffy head, sweet malt aroma. Drinkable, but not quite what I’d expect from an ESB.

bottle @ supermarket (budapest) we are both big metal fans with my girlfriend, that’s why we tried it, but a bit disappointed this product. amber colour, normal body, malty one, but nothing special notes to be a remarkable ONE.

50 cl. bottle @ home, gift from Peter. Clear copper with a very thin white head. Malty aroma with some hoppy fruitiness. Taste is sweet with a buttery finish. Body is quite thine but overall it’s a decent bitter.

From a bottle. Pours amber gold with head and lace. Aroma of light grains, caramel, grass. Medium carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of grainy water, very light malts, minerals, slight oxidation. Overall not a pleasant beer but a cool label and bottle cap!
