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.

Pours clear copper with a yellowish head. Smells of caramel and light fruitiness. Taste is light sweetness, a little fruity, and a touch bitter. Light-bodied with a wet texture and mild mouth-carbonation, Robinsons Iron Maiden Trooper finishes with a kiss of bitterness.

Cerveja forte, clara, 4,7%vol., espumante, sabor caramelizado suave, odor de cogumelos frescos articulado com uma nota de giz no fundo, muito boa, combina com pratos com massas e pães que levem carne bovina, suína ou ovina, mas deve harmonizar particularnente bem com pratos à base de carne de coelho.

Ładny kolor bursztynu no i ta etykieta Iron Maiden. Lubię Heavy Metal wiec taka edycja przypadla mi do gustu. Piwo jest gozkie mocne i nawet jakby pikantne. Bardzo dobrze nachmielony Special Bitter ze srednia piana no ale w koncu to klasyczne brytyjskie ale wiec nie ma co sie czepiac piany. Polecam nie tylko milosnikom Iron Maiden:)

You’ll rate this beer, but I’ll rate it too, You’ll fill your glass, but I’ll be done and through, But when I try to use the song for this, The rhymes are crap as in those tunes from Kiss … Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh! Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh! - The bottle opens and the charge begins, But on this battle everybody wins, When gold and copper pours into the glass, I know this beer’s gonna kick some arse … Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh! Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh! - The nose is subtle, caramels and fruits, Nothing as pungent as the trooper’s boots, And for the taste of this Holy Grail, The mighty flavour of a perfect ale - The bitter sweetness really stirs my tongue, So many flavours, some will be unsung, We get the biscuits and a bit of grass, Oh shit I have to rhyme again with “arse”… Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh! Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh! - This is so balanced, near enough to “10”, I could be fightin’ hundred thousand men, Not only tasty, it goes down so well, All other Metal beers can burn in hell - While Amon Amarth try to brew their mead, Kiss has their crappy lager made by Swedes, ACDC just brewed their shit mainstream, But Eddie makes you mosh and bang and scream! … Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh! Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh!

Admittedly, this is as gimmick-y as it gets. However; Trooper ale is actually a great beer. More of an amber ale than a golden ale. Drinkability is awesome - I just had a bottle, and I could go for another. This beer is every bit as good as Fat Tire (and I love Fat Tire). A bit pricey, as least for we U.S. residents, but I’ve paid more for worse beer....

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!
