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.

Aroma was sweet, biscuity even cake like from the malt. The flavour was perfectly balanced by zesty, lightly spicy hops. Lightly sweet and lightly bitter, a very refreshing brew.

CAN!! Pours clear Amber with a thin off white head. Aroma is roasty and rich. Flavour is super malt. Finish is a very long lasting moderate bitterness.

30/06/2015 @ istanbul. Bardakta maun-açık kahverengi arası, saydam. Şişe üstündeki 'deep golden ale' Tanımı ile çok örtüşmüyor.. Köpük ise kalıcı değil, açık kahve/beyaz (kırık beyaz). Koku beklentimden derin, karamel, kavruk malt yanında hafif turunçgil hissediliyor. Orta az gövdeli tadım damakta hafif baharat acımsılığı, malt önde. Kalıcılık düşük ancak kolay içimli belirli bir derinliği de olan bir İngiliz Ale'i.. Türkiye'den Gara Guzu Amber e benzer bir bira..

This ale is brewed in cooperation with the lead singer of the rock band Iron Maiden, which is a great supporter of British ales. Foam is rich and renewable and emits a nice malty aroma with hints of rye crackers. The taste is also weak malty with hints of rye crackers, but also weak flavor notes of a little honey and Earl Grey tea into play. The hops have little citrus flavor and contributes to good filling in the ale. As ESB could expect little more hoppy bitterness, but it is rather pleasant hoppy so the malt is not dominated by hops. Lovely ESB which unfortunately I enjoy too early in the evening. The right time had probably been ’2 Minutes to Midnight’.

Cerveja inglesa real ale clássica, porém suave e é de ótima drinkability. Profundamente dourada e translúcida, não há presença de espuma e a cor convida para uma cerveja de personalidade forte. O aroma é um pouco decepcionante, sem elementos de destaque e com leve toque cítrico. Ao contrário do aroma, o sabor é muito agradável, uma Ale muito bem equilibrada e de amargor e corpo leve, com álcool pouco perceptível. O aftertaste é seco, porém refrescante, persistente e muito agradável. Pouco complexa, o malte harmoniza perfeitamente com o lúpulo, tornando-a uma ótima cerveja para ser tomada em grande volume. Boa para harmonizar com carnes de sabor forte.

Drank from the van.look,I bought this because it has Eddie on it,I want expecting anything good. That said, it’s not bad. Slightly hoppy larger scent (from the van, so grain of salt). Assistance no idea. Taste is light malt and mild bitter hops. Overall, decent drinker, not quite the novelty I expected

Bought this beer thinking it would just be a gimmick, and was pleasantly surprised. Nothing phenomenal, but worth a try.

Very English beer pours a deep amber with an inch of noisy head (from a growler). Aroma is English malt profile with grains and the slightest hint of caramel. Something possibly metallic. Taste is mild, malts are quite dry, bitter ing hops to balance with an earthy, floral character. Vanishing act of a finish. Not enough flavour there to be that interesting, but just enough sweetness and body to not be ’chuggable’. Ok.

Pod Mosteczkiem, butelka. Takie piwo co sie wypilo i nic z niego nie zapamietalo. troszke karmelu w tle, troszke goryczki jakiejs takiej roslinnej, jakies slady cytrusow moze moznaby sobie wmowic... ale generalnie ziew.
