Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

3.76/5  rDev +12.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

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....

Clean copper appearance, with a good foa, off-white, and long standing.
English smell, with some pepper, som etea, and earthly notes. Standard, but pleasant.
Similar notes in the mouth, clean and drinkable.
Well done beer, balanced, classic, easy to drink.

Overall an okay beer that is really easy to drink and even enjoyable on this hot summer day. Just so much better stuff out there. Really cool bottle and band nostalgia if your into 'Iron Maiden' even remotely I would definitely grab it~
