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.

Wanted to try this beer as I wanted to see what Bruce Dickinson has come up with. A good, dark beer with noticeable fruity flavor hints

500ml bottle served in a pint glass. A: Nice bottle art. Fans of classic Heavy Metal will love it! :) The beer is also beautiful as the English Bitters use to be. Pours a clear orange color forming a one finger white to yellow head. Aired and thin to medium bubbled. Low retention. It vanishes quickly than I was expecting but leaves a lot of lingering lacings around S: Malts, caramel, crystal malts and some flowery hops. Too light. Weak character T: The same for the taste. Slightly sweet caramel malts in upfront. Overall, very dry in the mouth. Too weak bitterness to a British ESB. Some notes of paperboard M: Light and watery body. Medium to low carbonation. Caramel malts and paperboard aftertaste O: Ok drinkability but very far from the classic and original songs of Iron Maiden [ BA Review @ 8/3/2013 ]

500 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a clear orangy colour with small white head. Aroma is toasted malts, fruits, caramel. Taste is pretty much the same. Not bad.

This surprised me in a positive way. Nicely bitter taste, quite refreshing all in all, and surprisingly well balanced.

50 cl systembolaget. En helt ok öl med tanke på lanseringen som Iron Maiden öl positivt överraskad!

Yep, quite like that. Dark gold with a bit of head. Gives off a nice aroma; sweet, citrus, floral, some malt. Flavours of light caramel malt, slightly nutty and, as the bottle suggests, subtle lemon. Would be nicer if a bit more body to it, but not bad.

Bottle into pint glass. Pours a light copper with white head that leaves nice lacing. Light aroma of sweet bread and lemon. Taste is lemony citrus with a little bready malt. Fantastic beer. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10
