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.

thanatosti (1463) - Culemborg, NETHERLANDS - MAY 14, 2016
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.

DenverLogan (1071) - MileHi, Colorado, USA - MAY 13, 2016
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!

Darwenus (867) - Virginia, USA - MAY 10, 2016
Pours amber/orange with average carbonation and foam. The aroma is typical of a mild English bitter, notes of green onion and some citrus. Very mild malt, slightly sulfuric aftertaste, a hint of lemon. It’s not terrible, but not worthy of naming for one of Iron Maiden’s very best songs.

W aromacie chmiel, wyczuwalne nuty bitterowe, laktoza. W smaku podobnie. Bardzo ciekawe piwo, bez wad.

De Robinson Brewbery esta "Trooper Iron Maiden" cerveza estilo Best Bitter, este estilo de tradición inglesa muy popular en los pubs, en donde generalmente se tira directo de barril, contiene poca graduación alcohólica y un balance similar al de una Pale Ale inglesa, solo que su base de malta es mas pronunciada, cuando se sirve de barril generalmente es acondicionada con CO2 al tirarse la pinta. Visualmente esta cerveza tiene una corona de espuma mediana, con una regular retención y perlas pequeñas, actividad de carbonatación nula, su color es un dorado cristalino que deja ver a través del vaso, cuenta con un cuerpo ligero. En aroma sus notas principales son a caramelo, bizcocho, lúpulo casi imperceptible y acidez notable que para nada es deseable en este tipo de cervezas. Ya en el paladar muestra un balance claro hacia el dulzor con marcado sabor a caramelo, sigue sabor a pan blanco, con muy poco amargor, herbal del lúpulo y una astringencia muy marcada al final que es residual, llega un momento en que si es bastante incisiva, tambien tiene una nota metálica desagradable, los 4.7% ABV de esta cerveza están bien para el estilo mas no las notas fínales, mala esta bitter, para mi en lo personal muy dulce.

Fullpintofbeer (183) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2016
Bottle from Gardiner Haskings, Bristol. Appearance: medium white head, amber colour, clear, good lacing. Aroma: grain, apple, nails!!! Taste: bitter. Palate: light to medium body, medium bitter finish, flat. Overall: The Troooooooper!!!! Iron Maiden’s old classic, unfortunately the beer reminds new Maidens albums - average & boring. There’s also a bit of heavy metal in it - nails! Nevertheless it is worth trying. Cheers!

lbianchi66 (309) - FRANCE - APR 25, 2016
Robe ambrée et limpide. Pas de mousse. Arômes caramel et céréales, légères notes florales. Goût caramel, fruits jaunes, agrumes. Plutôt courte en bouche. Texture aqueuse. Carbonatation fine mais peu abondante. Buvable mais sans plus.

fhoublon (428) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - APR 16, 2016
Bouteille de 500 ml achetée dans une SAQ. Dégustée le 4 avril 2016 (eng. pint). Bière cuivrée limpide. Mousse peu, col mince et éphémère. Très très peu effervescente, bulles fines à peine observables. Odeur caractéristique des ales anglaises. Très douce, assez sucrée, un peu amère, en fait pas aussi amère que le style (ESB) le laisserait croire. Le tout est un peu mince, avec des saveurs un peu timides de malt/biscuit, de caramel.

cokolwiek11 (367) - POLAND - APR 13, 2016
Light amber clear beer with white head. Aroma: hint of malts (caramel, cookies, bread), hint of esters. Taste: light sweet from malts with light herbal bitter from hops. Palate: light to medium body, high carbonation. Overall: OKish bitter, BORING beer.

DSG (11505) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 10, 2016
Bottle sample at a tasting at Yoav’s place. Thanks Yoav. Hazy goldenj. Aroma of oxidation, cardboard, malt, honey, a bit of stale hops. Sweetish flavor with malt, a bit of cardboard, a honey note, and bitterish stale hops. Too old, but still pretty drinkable.
