Trooper takes its name from the Iron Maiden song which is inspired by the famous Charge of the Light Brigade. Being a real ale enthusiast, vocalist Bruce Dickinson has developed a beer which has true depth of character.
Trooper is a Premium British Beer inspired by Iron Maiden and handcrafted at Robinsons brewery. 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.

Caramel fruity aroma. Dark brown amber colour with a subtle haze. Quite tangy and hoppy aroma. Not as pleasurable as the aroma. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I wasnít expect much from this beer and I didnít get much. Itís rather average bitter, maybe even letís say average typical bitter. Itís golden and clear. In aroma and taste itís malty. The bitterness is ok, but nothing special.

Pale beer which looks like a fairly standard pint, and so it proved. Not much aroma and very thin for its gravity although it has a pleasant enough mid-mouth bitterness that tails off towards the finish. Not offensive, but not remarkable either

Cask at GBBF. Pale yellow, still, clear, no real head. Aroma is malty, some glue. Body is medium to light, low carbonation. Taste is resin and glueÖ in a good way. A light, malty beer. I was expecting less.

Cask @ Sonisphere 2014 (Maiden headlined Saturday) awesome pint and a lifesaver at a festival that otherwise served Tuborg... dark amber colour, off white creamy head, fresh hey and bready nose, citric hops and cookie malt, sturdy, round, well balanced beer. Quaffable indeed
