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.

Solid nutty aroma. Lasting white lacy head. Flavor is not especially well balanced, light bitterness and notes of hazelnut.

It poured an orange color with a white head. The aroma was of English malts with some earthy notes as well as a hint of grass as well. The taste was very similar. There was some toffee as well as a little grass, light bitterness and a hint of earth. Decent.

Bottle shared with northropfrye. The label really grossed me out. I like the aroma fair enough. The head is not too bad. Palate is kind of enjoyable. But all of this is at a half-assed level. Tastes okay.

northropfrye (2807) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 6, 2013
Pale copper body with white head and nice lacing. Faint sweet grainy aroma, pleasant but uninteresting. Taste is initially bitter, some sweet maltiness. Pretty typical average esb.

Lilja (2185) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2013
Smak och fat av humle, malt, karamell med toner av smörkola. Lätt kropp, blek, Tydlig beska. Ingen hit.

mR_fr0g (5824) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2013
Bottle at home from Morrison’s Aroma is nutty toffee malt and slight buttery. Clear amber colour persistent white head with some lace. Flavour is nutty and slight caramel, some yeast esters. Body is light and a touch watery. Carbonation is medium and finish is semi dry. Middle of the road english bitter. Pretty boring.

I am a big Iron Maiden fan so even though this was $6 a bottle had to try one. Poured up a nice deep amber color with a decent head. Smells of caramel malts. Taste was mostly caramel with some earthy tones to it. Really couldn’t pick out much for the hops. Decent brew with a thick feel to it but where is the ABV? For the price and the fact that it is Iron Maiden I would like to have seen something with more kick in it. Oh well it is still a cool looking label and will be a welcome addition to my bottle collection.

Rune (9401) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 4, 2013
500ml bottle many thanks to Finn. Airy, persistent, off-white head. Spotty lacework down the glassware. Clear, golden brown coloured body. Very good looking. Mild caramel smell mingled with leafy hops. Flavours of caramel, grain and resin leading to a bittersweet ending with malts and leafy hops. Medium bodied. Classic English ESB. Not exactly the number of the beast, but good drinking and better than Motörhead so far (Tromsø, 27.09.2013).

Bottle. Pretty caramel like. Not high on yeast. Nice long lasting head. Very light beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
