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.

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.

AdiBeer (1902) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2015
Aroma: fruity, bread and grain malts, some caramel. Appearance: clear amber, small, frothy, white head. Taste: light sweet. Palate: turns light bitter quickly, grains again, maybe some citrus fruits, slightly dry finish. Overall: very malty but nice ESB, lacks some complexity, so not quite up there. Pint at the Three Tuns, Marble Arch.

Scopey (8471) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2015
Cask at the Oval, Croydon. It pours clear amber-brown with a decent off-white head. The nose is toasty, brown bread, biscuit and light caramel sweetness. The taste is malt-driven, toasty, leather, wood, biscuit, brown bread, caramel, light pepper and nut with a dry sort of finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Not bad, but far from exciting. OK bitter, but forgettable.
