3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml Bottle. Pours orange to slightly red color with a nice white head. No distinct aroma. Fresh, well balanced body. Very drinkable, an excellent session ale. It represents everything I would expect from a typical English ale.

If you have been drinking it for a while it might leave a sour taste but the aroma is nice and soft.

3.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
1 pint .09 Fl oz bottle. It has the aroma of caramel and toffee along with a floral and citrus hop aroma. It pours a golden orange color with a very small quickly fading white head. It has a light body and tastes of caramel and toffee with a nice and noticeable hop bitterness. The aftertaste is biscuits.
Although the bottle is very cool and I love Iron Maiden, I must admit I felt a little weird buying what may seem like a novelty beer along with such choices as Orval. But I knew Mr. Dickinson wouldn’t let me and his other fans down. And he didn’t. God bless you Mr. Dickinson.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours an amber color with a clean malt aroma. Taste is a bit watery with some minor caramel sweetness. Very easy drinking, and smooth in the aftertaste. A little thin overall.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Of course I bought this one just because of the label. I have no hopes whatsoever that this will turn out to be a good beer... It pours a clear, medium amber body with a quite dense and creamy eggnog head that leaves a good deal of lacing on my glass. The aroma is moderate with some nice and crispy citric lemon notes, in addition to pale malts, caramel, generic sweet fruits and hints of popcorn. The moderate flavours are even more dominated by the nice lemon notes and there might be floral hints in the back. Light to moderate sweet taste and a reasonably long finish with a light to moderate bitterness. Decent mouthfeel, it’s crisp, light and dry with a soft carbonation. A pleasant surprise, this one is actually pretty good, but maybe nothing to run to the hills for.
[50 cl bottle, enjoyed 7 months before BB date, from ICA Ullevål, Oslo]

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500 ml bottle. Pours copper with very light head. Aromas of wet grains and pepper. Flavors of cardboard, high grained bread, and bitter tea. Not much fun.

Bu en bouteille de 50cl, là on tape vraiment dans le côté merchandising de la bière... Couleur caramel pas de mousse, le goût commence sur le grillé et sur le fruit acide, aucune amertume.

Wow this was bad. Bitter as any beer I’ve had. Probably tastes like formaldehyde. Hopefully I’ll never know.
