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.

The aroma is malty and yeasty with light grassy hops. The appearance is orange gold with a small head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall it’s great.

Aftertaste has grains and a bit of grass, trace of bitterness. Light bodied, soft carbonation. Good premium bitter, light and drinkable.

vyvvy (5015) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - OCT 23, 2013
Pours clear copper with a soapy beige head. The aroma has earth, fruitiness, mushy caramel malt and British yeastiness. The body is fairly light, but still has some backbone and there is a moderate amount of carbonation. The flavor starts off with the aroma traits, but it is drier and doesn’t have the mushiness from the aroma. There is a toffee presence and a spicy / earthy hops flavor. The finish shows a decent amount of the hoppiness mentioned and a touch of bitter citrus. Good beer & definitely more than just a gimmick beer with a band name slapped on it. Although I’m sure that name is helping this to sell a lot more than it would otherwise.

gnoff (9190) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - OCT 23, 2013
50 cl bottle from Systembolaget in Mölndal, with the for Sweden specific label. Sampled on October 23, 2013.
Clear copper oxide to brownish red light cherrywood color, smallish and not very long lasting off-white to yellow head. Sweet, malty, sugary, fruity, candy like, esters scent. Malty, sweet, some harsh note bitterness, mineral taste. Apple peel, grainy, dusty, chemically candy like aftertaste. Medium to smooth, fairly low CO2 mouthfeel. Medium high dry to the harsh side bitterness with a dry grainy finish to it.
Don’t see a problem to finish the bottle, but fairly sure I won’t be buying it one more time.

GregClow (3027) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 22, 2013
Bottle from the LCBO. Crystal clear golden-orange body with a finger of white head that recedes to a thin cap and leaves spotty lacing. Pleasant aroma of toasted grain and honey, with wafts of citrus peel and limestone. Flavour has a lovely balance, with slightly caramelized toasted grain meshing well with the hops that have a great UK/US balance - a bit earthy on one hand, but with a pop of bright citrus on the other. A simple but enjoyable beer that I bet would be smashing on cask.

jksipa (616) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 21, 2013
Bottle from the LCBO. Pours a clear medium copper colour with a two finger beige head. Nose is caramel and cereal with a hint of citrus. Up front malt sweetness and a slight bitter lemon undertone. Mouth is slightly watery with light carbonation and a medium dry bitter finish. Nothing exceptional, but it’s got Eddy on the label.
