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.

Copper with thin head. Malty, easy drinking... solid but unadventurous ESB

Sjohnh (539) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2015
Fairly standard, malt based bitter. Colour of golden syrup, nice and clear with a small white head. Body a bit on the light side. Malts give a caramel base and a slightly sweeter toffee flavour running through the middle of it.

Amber color, soft persistent offwhite head, plenty of lacing. Caramel malts with lemon and UK hops. Mild sweetness, balanced by delicate bitterness. Fruity and woody notes in the fairly dry finish.

Pint, hand-pulled cask at Dog & Duck. Almost clear amber body. Clingy lacing from a filmy layer. Biscuit and oily hops on the nose. Similar taste with a mixture of caramel, biscuit, and herbal hosp. Bittersweet tail. Medium bodied. Decent. Extra score for Eddie on the pump clip (London 11.07.2015).

Hippoman (408) - Durham, ENGLAND - JUN 26, 2015
Cask at Market Tavern, Durham, £3.90/pint. Decent unpretentious, drinkable beer. Plenty of biscuity malt and hints of nuts. Slips down easily for 4.8%.

JorgeLee (1522) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2015
Cask in the Elephant & Castle W8. Quite a deep bright golden colour, thin white foam despite southern serving methods. Robinsons was never my favourite brewery in the Manchester area, always found their beers a bit watery and lacking assertiveness. This actually wasn’t bad - some nice sweetish malt and a balancing hop to finish. Quite an old school pint, quite enjoyable although slightly falls between the two stools of being an all evening quaffer and satisying one/two pint strong bitter.

AshtonMcCobb (4201) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 10, 2015
On cask at the Haymarket. Appearance - golden amber with a decent head. Nose - biscuits, some light spice and general astringency. Taste - orange, light toffee and biscuits. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy yet crunchy texture and a fairly good finish. Overall - not rich enough for an ESB.

Cask (handpump) at the Red Lion, Littleborough on 3 August 2013. Coppery colour. Thin white head. Earthy feel with a fair amount of fruity bitterness. Decent enough traditional style bitter - can’t say I picked up much influence from the Cascade hops. There’s a hint of residual sweetness but that’s balanced by the robust bitterness. Very slight sharp apple notes - maybe a touch green on this occasion - but not enough to be too problematic.

31.7.2014. Sour aroma with lemon, peach. Taste is very sour, covering almost everything else.
