Beer added by: flyingpig on 07-12-2013

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.

Wasn't expecting much with all of the low ratings. However I really enjoyed this beer as it tasted almost like an amber ale which are among my favorites. Would definitely drink this beer again. Plus it's Iron Maide, come on!

I'm a big Maiden fan so I was drawn to the bottle. Too bad what's inside didn't match the awesomeness of the outside. Muddy color, terrible head (giggity), not crazy about the honey taste even though I dig honey. Bummer.

Exactly this: The body is watery with low carbonation. Was hoping for more a more aggressive taste. Not bad at all, just nothing memorable about this $5.99 pint. Was surprisingly mellow and tame - best part was the artwork and history lesson on the back.

L: Looks good, caramel dark copper color, with a mild almost not existent head.
S: Smells like everything: sugar, caramel, flowers, citrics, toffee with hints of spices
T: Tastes very mild, not as strong as the style might suggest, it´s very sweet and I don´t really like that, there´s a citric note that´s strong but not very pleasant.
F: It´s very light bodied and low carbonation.
O: I was very disappointed with this beer, you expect something aggressive or strong with a Strong Bitter style of beer, this one isn´t strong nor bitter.

A: [3.50] Very clear beer. Looks amber to red. The pour formed a small frothy head the head dissipates quickly. There is a date code - I am not sure what it means. The bottle lists the ABV 4.7%.

S: [3.75] I get rich caramel and almost chocolate. Lots of sweet scents.

T: [2.50] Faded hop presence up front with very mild bittering. There is some malitness at the back and a faint rust flavor.

M: [2.75] The body is watery with low carbonation.

O: [2.75] This is just a timid beer. The nose delivers the hope of something good but it ends there. No real flavor or feel on the palate.
