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.

Holmen2 (4296) - NORWAY - NOV 30, 2017
From tap at Crown & Anchor, Hilton Street, Manchester, 30.11.17. Clear dakr golden. Dense and persistent off-white head and lacing. Moderate aroma, with pale malt, pale crystal malt, and a hint of lemon and lime juice. Similar taste. Smooth mothfeel.

smooth and malt-heavy; a staple amongst metalheads for seemingly obvious reasons, even though we are supposed to be too cool for brands. i have to ask myself if this would be anywhere near as popular as it is if it did not have the iron maiden association - and the answer is no, absolutely not, especially when served in plastic at a sweaty rock bar.

GuideDogSaint (1809) - Xiamen, CHINA - JUN 25, 2017
Cask at the Assembly Rooms, Epsom. Pours clear mid brown with a white head. Aroma of malt. Biscuit taste. Bitter finish. Average.

FatPhil (17334) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 15, 2017
Draught (Farmer’s Boy, St. Albans)
Simple sweet malty fruity bitter. Aroma and taste are totally middle-of-the road bitter - but good enough.

KansaiBeerLvrs (5501) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 5, 2016
Finally got to try some of this at the GBBF. Trooper sample at GBBF lovely copper Amber with mild green hoppy nose, smooth flavor and easy drinking but I want more metal.

GenkiGonzo (1096) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 17, 2016
Cask at TLW, Cork. Amber pour with a fine white head. Malty, woody and quite dry. Just okay.

Mr_Pink_152 (5760) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2016
Tried at the old post office in Newark. Deep amber colour with a light beige head. Nice malty aroma and taste, but nothing special.

BeerViking (5132) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2016
Cask at the Hope, Richmond. Bright golden-brown with a thin ring and a lemony malty nose. Dry-sweet and lightly bitter, hints of toast and lemon, faint touches of liquorice, and an earthy bitter finish.

Towey1989 (3433) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2015
Cask at The Fountain, Leek. A clear amber colour with a medium white head. Aroma of caramel, slight biscuit, a little orange, subtle lemon and spicy, earthy hops. Taste is similar of caramel, some biscuit, slight orange, subtle lemon and spicy, earthy hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A bittersweet, biscuity, earthy hop bitterness in the finish. Nothing exceptional because it’s from Robinsons. It is easy drinking and has a decent range of flavours. Rated it decently because Bruce Dickinson was involved.

Sjohnh (1032) - 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.
