COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

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.

Deu (668) - Nantes, FRANCE - APR 20, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear amber with a thin white head. Caramel malt and grass aroma. Taste is a bit bland but with a nice little bitter kick at the end. Not impressive but descent.

EithCubes (4634) - New Jersey, USA - APR 14, 2014
Bottle. Nose earthy hops and nutty malt with very light meaty/spaghetti character. Pours clear copper with red highlights and a sudsy beige head. Taste lightly bitter and slightly sweeter, has crackery tones that blur into bread, sticky medium body that’s lightly chewy with a touch of crystal, mild and flitting fruitiness, citrus which lingers and earth right up the middle. Low butterscotch, more in the feel. I had the urge to stifle a yawn, but it really grew on me with volume, and I’d enjoy another!

LasseVPedersen (175) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - APR 12, 2014
Bottle, 50cl. Pours clear bronze copper-ish colour with moderate, off-white head. Fruity and malty head with hobs pleasantly in the background. Medium bittersweet flavour with hobs, malt, grass, citrus and toffee. Finish dry and bitter. Medium bodied, average carbonation. Quite nice.

presario (4535) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - APR 5, 2014
Dark crisp amber with a light lasting head. Light but fragrant hop scent; notes of cedar, floral and citrus. Nice. Moderate drink with some decent hopping that raises it above Pedigree or London Pride. Could pound away watching a sporting event
