COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
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.

Ernest (6729) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 1, 2013
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is light amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain, cookie), lightly to moderately hoppy (stale flowers/apricot), with light notes of diacetyl and honey. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, metallic. Hard to imagine Bruce (or anyone else) being impressed by this phoned-in brew. Very generic and just barely even average.

thornecb (4826) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 1, 2013
Pours deep amber into an English pint. White soapy head with medium retention recedes to mottle surface. Sourdough and caramel aromas. Dry with butterscotch and toffee upfront turning to mild bitter earth in the lasting finish.

Cristobal37 (370) - Canyon Lake, California, USA - SEP 30, 2013
A decent dry ale. The color is an attractive ruby and the head only lasts a moment. Hoppy ale with a nice fresh taste and an abrupt dry finish which unfortunately doesn’t last very long.

camborne (656) - Hopkins, Minnesota, USA - SEP 29, 2013
Was very excited to try this one. It was just average. Biscuit and yeasty with some nice bitterness that is tamed by caramel malt sweetness

JStax (3778) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - SEP 28, 2013
500 ml bottle poured into a brandy snifter. Pours a hazy copper with a thin white head of foam. Aroma is grainy and grassy. It actually makes me think of a pale lager that’s a little more heavily hopped. This one isn’t doing much for me.

Clear orange copper. Medium white head. Light biscuity aroma. Perfectly balanced bitter. Bit of caramel, bit sweet but a dry finish ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Geokkjer (6582) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 28, 2013
Bottle. Pours deep golden with an off-white head. Aroma of malt, some citrus and caramel. Flavor is sweet and malty with some caramel, some butterscotch and fruitiness. Medium body, average carbonation.

yngwie (15382) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 28, 2013
Bottle. A clear, dark golden beer topped by a dense, beige head. Caramel, roasted notes, cheesy hops and some grass in the aroma. Butterscotch too, both in aroma and flavor. Boring. Some bitterness. Medium body, pleasant carbonation level. Some bitterness in the mostly malty finish. Unfortunately, the only thing interesting with this beer is the connection to Iron Maiden. 130928

Bottle 500ml @ Geokkjer
Pours clear golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, floral and fruity. Taste is light to medium sweet and light to medium bitter. Body is light to medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.

olsvammel (4140) - Örebro, SWEDEN - SEP 27, 2013
Bottle from Systembolaget. Toasty and malty smell. Similar taste with some toffee and a hint of honey. Drinkable and one of the better musicbeers, but still not great.
