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.

DATE TASTED: January 31, 2014... GLASSWARE: HopDevil nonick...OCCASION: a good week ends, and Shark Tank begins!... APPEARANCE: hazy whiskey-copper body; pure white, steady head; slight effervescence; intricate lacing... AROMA: smooth and malty, with wafting caramel; bright, punchy hops are less citric than expected ... PALATE: smooth, buttery and swift a Steve Harris bass line; a pleasantly drinkable pub ale...TASTE: sweet, nutty finish; subtle hops that fit into a British ale profile; soft lemon, chestnut and rum--complex enough to keep my attention throughout the glass... OVERALL: Not "Powerslave" in its power or "Seventh Son" in its complexity, this beer nonetheless rates somewhere in the area of "Fear of the Dark" or something more recent--a nice take on a classic style; the glass drained quickly...considering the middle-of-the-road price, I would revisit Trooper in the future regardless of the season--a good all-around ale....

From notes: Poured clear amber with a 1-finger white head. Light aroma, with notes of caramel and biscuity yeast. Body is light-to-medium, with a brief finish. Light citrusy hops flavor, with caramel malt beneath and a biscuity note in the finish.

500 mml Bottle. Tasted on 01/02/2014. The aroma is not abundant and insignificant. The appearance is cloudy and the colour is orange/caramel. The best is the label but that´s a merit of Iron Maiden. Next one please.

tricksta_p (4561) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JAN 31, 2014
Amber colour with a small white head. Aroma of malts, grain, modest hops. Flavour is bready malt. A bit watery and unremarkable.

rouhlas (3588) - GREECE - JAN 31, 2014
Bottle at home. Hazy amber color with white head. Malty and bready and something like honey in aroma. Bittersweet taste, caramel with dry finish

Trooper has a medium, soapy, off-white head, a clear, copper appearance, and a bit of lacing left behind. The aroma is faint, but, with some effort, one can detect bread crust, a touch of fruit, and malt. Taste is similarly dull, with just a touch of bitterness to rescue it. I let it warm, but nothing changed. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Trooper finishes semi-dry, easy drinking, and a bit vegetable like. Overall, for $5.99 for a 16.9 oz. bottle, this is a total rip-off. If that much is paid for a beer that is significantly inferior in aroma, taste, and body to Country Club Malt Liquor ($3.50 for a six-pack of 12 oz. cans), one quickly realizes that one has "been played". If you enjoy expensive, dull, novelty beers, this is one to have! RJT

This is a decent ale with nice color and good taste. Nothing wanted me to play air guitar, but it went down nicely. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice bitter!! Good balance between each compound... Good to drink it during a diner

Bamsen78 (5336) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 29, 2014
Bottle @ Fox and Hounds, Aabenraa, to accompany my meal. Pours clear amber with airy off-white head. Clear aroma of fruit, hops, and malt. Bitter, hoppy flavour, with sourish and sweetish fruity notes and malty touches. Rather bitter finish. OK. I am happy I finally tasted the beer praising one of the favourite bands of my (now long gone) teenage years. Still, I get the feeling that without Eddie sending a scary look from the label, the beer would be rather anonymous. So, that’s my rating #2121. This must do for the number of the beast.

Drank from bottle. The main reason I tried this because of the novelty. I am a huge Iron Maiden fan. But getting to the taste of this beer. I found it quite underwhelming. Kind of reminded me of a pale ale that wasn’t all there. Okay beer. Love the bottle though
