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.

Le marketing nous incite à l’acheter bien sur, mais la triste vérité c’est qu’au Québec les amateurs de bières se garochent sur pas mal n’importe quoi de nouveau à la SAQ tellement il y a peu de choix. Enfin bref... Une bière est plus foncée/orangée que je ne m’y attendais, mais clairement dans la famille des bières faciles comme je le prévoyais aussi. Une bière simple donc, une ale caramel tirant sur la lager. Ce n’est pas désastreux, je vais finir la bouteille, mais c’est loin, loin, d’être intéressant.

DerGantzel (135) - Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 27, 2015
A light floral aroma from the hops and roastiness and wheat from the malt. Light red pale color and clear liquid, frothy head. Medium sweetness and a light-medium bitterness - quit typical for the style. Average carbonation, medium body, a light bitter roasty finish. A successful beer, with a good taste, but without any experimental elements.

Hanuta06 (404) - Washington, USA - AUG 25, 2015
Serving: from can--purchased at Full Throttle Bottles. Aroma: light malt. Appearance: small, creamy, off-white initial head with fair lacing and mostly diminishing longevity. Clear, light-amber body. Taste: moderately sweet, citrusy initial flavor and moderately sweet, roasty finish with average duration. Palate: medium bodied with oily texture and soft carbonation. Overall: better than I expected.

Finally got to try some of this at the GBBF. Trooper sample at GBBF lovely copper Amber with mild green hoppy nose, smooth flavor and easy drinking but I want more metal.

sarauckelman (306) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2015
Clear amber with scummy head. Nice classic ale aroma with a bit of caramel. Sour and hoppy, with mineral undernotes, becoming nutty as it warms up. Smooth mouthfeel, a bit astringent (from the hops), and a nice up-and-down complex taste profile.. A good solid beer, enjoyable.

uckelman (470) - Durham, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2015
Pours colear copper colored, medium head. Some citrus in the aroma, as well as a bit of the alcohol (not sure why, as it’s < 5%). Nutty flavor. Lively, quite a bit of acid on the finish. Not bad.

BeerInHeaven (291) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 14, 2015
pours clear copper with a smallish but bubbly off white head. Aroma is light floral and lemon. Taste is mildly bitter. Some light citrus hops. Clean finish with a light hoppy bitter linger. From a long time Maiden fan, cheers Bruce! Good beer!

Eirikur (378) - hafnarfjordur, ICELAND - AUG 12, 2015
Typical nice english ale. Pours a thick though fast fainting head. Caramel, soft, smooth, medium hoppy and a bit malty. Very pleasant brew.
