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.

Bottled. Clear copper colour with a thin white head but lively carbonation. Malt, bread, and yeast on the nose. Good bread/yeast flavours to start, then a touch thin and acidic in the middle, but with a long, dry finish of bready flavours again. Not bad.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
There are a lot of wines carrying the names of famous Rock or Metal bands. This is the only product that appears to be authentic. It’s not just the label. Bruce Dickinson, Iron Maiden’s vocalist, was involved in developing this beer. It’s amber and smells of malt and citrus, which is due to the Cascade hops used besides Bobec and Goldings. It starts malty and reminds a bit of nuts, especially hazelnuts. It could be a bit more full-bodied, which doesn’t mean it tastes watery. The finish is very convincing with its citrus-like hop aroma. The hop aroma and the malty character are well-balanced. Well done, Bruce!

Better than I was expecting. Most of these celebrity beers are pretty crappy. pours dark brown with a small white ring. Aroma is earthy malts with a small cascade hop. Taste is earthy malts with a light bitterness. Easy drinking but not very noteworthy.

Piękna etykieta. Barwa miedziana, piwo klarowne. Piana na 2 palce, biała, z trwałym kożuchem. Intensywny słodowy, lekko słodki aromat z odrobiną chmielu. W smaku podobnie - słodowa lekko słodka podbudowa, chmiel, nieco karmelu. Goryczka na średnim poziomie. Solidny średniak.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500 ml bottle. Pours a clear light amber with a large, pillowy, off-white head. Aromas are heavy caramel malts, some grass/hay, and a lemon scent reminiscent of the "Realemon" you can buy at the grocery store. Tastes are mildly bitter, almost metallic, a little bit of carbon. Light body, creamy on the palate, medium length light coppery finish. This beer leaves me divided: I love Iron Maiden, I love beer, I do not love Iron Maiden's beer.

Bottle, pours amber with a thin white head, the aroma is a light citrus with a little bit of malt, the taste is light bitter with some caramel, malt, nuts, and citrus, has a dry finish.
While a decent ESB, I was kind of hoping for more being a fan of the band when I was younger and reading the story of the beer on the label, still it is decent and worth a try if only for the novelty of it.

Was expecting more from this, a decent bitter, but nothing extraordinary. Certainly drinkable, but not something I’d buy anymore.

Bottle 50cl, kindly shared by Dominique. A clear copper beer with low head. Nose is slightly honey like with caramel touch. Aroma is on toasted malt, grassy hops, blond caramel, body is low, medium bitter, bit boring, diacetyl at the finish.
