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.

1.65/5  rDev -50.5%
look: 3 | smell: 1.75 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1.25 | overall: 1.75

Bottle: Poured a light copper color ale with a medium size foamy head with light retention with limited lacing. Aroma of grainy malt notes with stales hops is not the most enticing. Taste is also dominated by unrefined grainy notes with some stale hops is not the most pleasant. Body is light with medium carbonation. Never been a fan of the music and it appears I am not a fan of their beers either.

I had high hopes for Trooper and had been looking forward to trying it (both as a devout metal head and a fan of the British brewing tradition), unfortunately I found it to be highly unremarkable and in general, highly disappointing. Will have to buy another bottle from a different source as I suspect this one was mishandled, the flavor was not consistent at all with a "premium" British beer, vague, watery, more aftertaste than flavor, closer to budwieser than beer with none of the complexity and well defined flavor reported in other reviews.

2.4/5  rDev -27.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

Serving Type - 16.9oz bottle

Appearance - Golden tan/orange with a 1 inch creamy head, and some lacing.

Smell - Bitter malts, some caramel, a little lemon, pale malts. Classic bready aroma. A little light but still not too bad.

Taste - Wow, this is some good bottled water! Wait, this is actually beer? Very light flavor, minor sour/bitterness clear at the finish. I compare this to a coors light minus the corn and wheat flavors. No hops, sugars, and very little malts clear to the end.

Mouthfeel - Doesn't do much to tongue or palate, very minimal malts coat the palate at the finish. Aftertaste is minor bitter.

Overall - Garbage, flavorless, sucks. I bought this cause its a iron maiden beer but Jesus Christ did the band drink this first then agree on it or was it just them saying they can use our name and that's all they had in it. ALmost 5$ for one of the lightest/flavorless beers outside a American macro ive ever had. This beer sucks and F you robinson brewing for associating this beer with iron maiden.

1 pint .9 fl oz brown glass bottle with cool label art and branded black pry-off pressure cap acquired at Wheatsville Co-Op and served into an Independence Brewing pilsner glass in me gaff in low altitude Austin, Texas. Reviewed live. Expectations are low; this is a tough style in which to make a tasty beer, and the band tie-in feels like a gimmick. 4.7% ABV confirmed.

Served cold, straight from me fridge. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: No bubble show forms as I pour.

Pours a one finger wide head of off-white/light khaki colour. Nice creaminess and thickness. Appealing soft complexion. Head retention is pretty good - about 3 minutes - though the low ABV makes this unimpressive. . Decent even lacing clings to the sides of the glass as the head recedes.

Body colour is a clear translucent copper of above average vibrance. No yeast particles are visible. Appears adequately carbonated.

Looks pretty standard for the style. Not unique or special, though there are no obvious flaws.

Sm: Buttery notes (diacetyl?), clean barley, honey, candi character, loads of malty sweetness, grains, noble hops, lots of caramalt, bubblegum, and clove. I don't find the citric notes described on the label.

No yeast character, hop character, or alcohol is detectable.

An inoffensive aroma of mild strength. I'm optimistic.

T: Buttery and sweet, with way too much caramalt. Plenty of lightly toasted grains. Some honey. Floral hop notes. English toffee. Biscuit malts. Flavour profile is painfully simple, with no complexity or subtlety at all. Lacks nuance. It's also not that well balanced; it's too sweet throughout. The diacetyl isn't working here; I know some ESBs use it properly but it's out of place in this flavour profile. There's very little going on here; it's quite boring. I'm not a big fan of this. It does succeed at presenting a distinctive English malt character, so I wouldn't call it bland.

Shallow depth of flavour. Average flavour duration and intensity for the style.

No yeast character or alcohol comes through.

Mf: Smooth and wet. Buttery and coating. Okay presence on the palate. Decent thickness and body. Suits the flavour profile in a general sense, but I wouldn't say the texture is custom-tailored to the taste. A biteen overcarbonated; that's unexpected given it's meant to mimic real ale.

Not harsh, astringent, gushed, or boozy.

Dr: If the goal here was to mimic a real ale, it nailed the English malt profile and general blandness, but missed the disappointing undercarbonation and poor texture. It drinks like it's about 6%; the alcohol is not well concealed. As an ESB, it's unenjoyable, and I certainly wouldn't get it again - especially at its highly unreasonable price point. I'll easily finish the bottle, but ultimately this is clearly just an Iron Maiden commercial tie-in gimmick beer. It's rare that a brewery actually goes for quality with these tie-in beers (Ommegang is an exception), and it shows here. I wouldn't recommend it to friends.

2.7/5  rDev -18.9%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

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!

T_Extremely sweet and malty. This tastes strongly of malt extract. Bits of stewed plums and a mild butterscotch note are present clearly indicating that there's something wrong here. Aftertaste is unpleasant.

M_Medium body with a mild carbonation. Accurate for style. At least the sweetness doesn't leave a sticky coating

O_Reminds me of one of my first attempts at home brewing. Pretty displeased with this offering.

Up the Irons! Muahaha!
Seriously though, this beer wasn't very good.

Clear coppery pour, with a thin white head that receded to a layer of wispy bubbles. Aroma of biscuity malts, a touch of toffee-like sweetness. Pretty subdued. Taste of biscuity, doughy malts, toasted grain, stale herbal hops, with a little apple skin in the finish. Nothing very good or memorable going on here. Light-medium body, moderate carbonation, mouthfeel was rough, and I really didn't feel like drinking the whole bottle.

I guess this beer probably put Robinsons/Unicorn on the map and introduced them to a wider audience. Too bad the beer wasn't better.

I poured this beer into my tumbler at 40 degrees hoping I had something great. Uhhh, no. Not really at all. The beer was amber in color looked okay except for the fact it had noo head at all. The headless beer. The beer was flat tasting with a little bit of a malty taste. Nope not going to buy again.

Fair lacing
Body clear, sparkling, medium yellowish
Flavor starts and finishes slightly acidic, very like a lager; no diacetyl
Light to medium body, watery, soft carbonation

Overall, a pretty average brew - some diacetyl would have been nice as would have been the advertised lemon hints. It is nice to see Eddie's branching out.

2.84/5  rDev -14.7%
look: 2.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

Pours out a medium amber color, the body is crystal clear and there’s plenty of carbonation as you pours, but it disappears after a few seconds. The head barely forms and what does form quickly dissipates into a thin ring around the glass. There is, however, a good lacing that coats the glass.
The nose is pretty bland, mild malts and a few floral smalls come through but not much else.
The taste is ok, spicy throughout and the hops seem to be more present than anything else.
This is a light bodied ale and overall it’s ok, nothing seems to stand out but it does go down easy, a bit more flavor would be nice.

Half pint at 'spoons as part of their latest real ale festival. A dark amber colour with a nose which reminds me of peach but is also floral. An overly negative spin on it would say it sounded like an old lady's bathroom. The taste is rather a let down after that: rather soapy, reminding me of apples.The only plus point is a hint of nuttiness.

2.99/5  rDev -10.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

The colour is copper (25 EBC), the liquid clear. The two finger off-white head sinks down to a thin lid leaving lots of lacing.

The smell is malty and dry with notes of caramel, flowery hops, vanilla, spicy bitterness, red apples and a hint of molasses. There is an earthy note in the background.

The taste got a fine blend of bitter-floral hops and caramel-ryebread malts. Some harsh green banana flavours. Red malts and cookies, some dried apples and apricots. Medium to light body. The aftertaste is dry with green bananas, orange peels, butterscotch and rye bread.

The carbonation is strong, the small bubbles long-lived. The liquid is mid-smooth and dry.

An OK best bitter/ESB, reminding me of my 90's pub crawls. The harsh husk-like pulls down the rating a bit.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A 500ml bottle with a BB of June 2014. Picked up the other day from Morrisons. Named after an Iron Maiden song that was inspired by the Charge of the Light Brigade.

Poured into a tulip pint glass. A clear orange-amber colour with medium carbonation. Forms a decent head of white foam that lasts for a minute or two before subsiding to a thin surface layer. Aroma of fruity ale yeast with hints of mild caramel malt, grass/hay and rather harsh stewed leaves. A touch of cardboard in the background. Weak.

Tastes of faint caramel malt with a mild bitter finish. Notes of fruity ale yeast, stewed leaves, grass/hay, a hint of caramel/toffee and very faint citrus. Well-attenuated, with a twinge of harsh cardboard in the background and a dry, leafy bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth and tingly, with pleasantly effervescent carbonation but a thin, watery body. Slightly astringent, followed by an aftertaste of mildly acrid stewed leaves and faint yeasty esters.

Meh - a disappointment. Looks OK, but the aroma/flavour are dull and uninspired while the body doesn't offer much to sink your teeth into. Coming from Robinson's I suppose I should have expected this, but I was hoping that the Iron Maiden connection might make for a more uncompromising brew. Oh well. No need to rush out and buy it.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

A: Poured from a bottle to a bottle. Had a copper color and a clear consistency. There was a small amount of foamy head that lasted an average amount of time. Fair lacing.

S: A somewhat underwhelming aroma of malt, hops, and not a whole lot else.

T: Tasted of light hops, a fair amount of malt, and a metallic quality. A bit on the watery side. Not a particularly exceptional flavor.

M: A well-carbonated beer with a weak finish. Medium-bodied.

O: An ESB isn't exactly a complex style to begin with and Trooper isn't a super example of it. There are worse beers out there, but this one isn't very exceptional. Kind of a novelty. Presumably if you're an Iron Maiden fan you'll have a different opinion of it.

500 ml. bottle, amber colour and a good head that doesn't hold for too long, but leaves a good lace. Smell of caramel, grains and malt. Medium body that sticks to the tongue. Taste of caramel, the usual mineral hops of some english beers, and some bitterness in the end. Not bad, but very one-dimensional, maybe to please everyone, but a beer you drink easily.

500ml bottle served in a pint glass.

A: Nice bottle art. Fans of classic Heavy Metal will love it! :) The beer is also beautiful as the English Bitters use to be. Pours a clear orange color forming a one finger white to yellow head. Aired and thin to medium bubbled. Low retention. It vanishes quickly than I was expecting but leaves a lot of lingering lacings around

S: Malts, caramel, crystal malts and some flowery hops. Too light. Weak character

T: The same for the taste. Slightly sweet caramel malts in upfront. Overall, very dry in the mouth. Too weak bitterness to a British ESB. Some notes of paperboard

M: Light and watery body. Medium to low carbonation. Caramel malts and paperboard aftertaste

O: Ok drinkability but very far from the classic and original songs of Iron Maiden

1 pint 0.9 fl oz brown bottle with pry off cap poured in a dimpled mug. Purchased in New Orleans.

Dark golden colour and clear. Very little white head on the pour recedes to leave just a couple of islands. No lacing to speak of.

Aroma of sweet grains with hints of caramel and herbal hops.

Flavour is sweet grainyness with a bitter herbal hop finish. Some metallic twang in the middle.

Light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation. There is a bit of a harshness in the finish.

Tastes more like a Euro Pale Lager than anything else. I'm not crazy about it, but it would probably be better on a hot summer day on a deck. Worth a try.

Clear deep golden colour with a thin, sporadic white covering on top.

Mild malt and citrus notes in the aroma and taste: OK but not exciting or pushing boundaries. Bitter hop undertone throughout and the beer grew on me as I progressed down the glass.

Lively and almost interesting.

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a tall lager glass

From skimming through the other reviews, it's clear I'm not the only one who bought this because, well, Iron Maiden RULES. I definitely didn't care what the beer tasted like. But that doesn't mean I wasn't planning on drinking it! On with the review...

A: Fairly unremarkable in appearance, though I suppose it's a nice mild, brownish-amber in color. I would have loved this had it been a deep, rich amber with a frothy beige head. Alas, not to be.

S: Again, unremarkable, if not outright lacking. What faint aroma I got was, of course, a bit on the bready/biscuity side. Perhaps some notes of toffee. Merely adequate in every way.

T/M: Pretty much, you guessed it, unremarkable. Noticing a trend? Then again, it's completely inoffensive as well. Almost all malts of the grain, bread, biscuit variety. Subtle sweetness somewhere in the middle. Short, forgettable finish.

O: Ah well, I'll always have the bottle to remember this beer by. No seriously though, at $5, it's a terrible value. But if these were $2-$3 or so, I'd have one every now & again. Probably should have let it warm a bit more to get that "British mild" feel, but otherwise, a very, very average beer.

I'll start by saying, being a huge Maiden fan that I bought this for the bottle. It could have Eddie's piss in it and I still would have bought it. Pours a brown copper color not much head. Smell is bread and malt, faint smell of hops. Smells like Boddington's to me. Taste is typical English ale. Biscuits, malt, not much hop. Kinda tangy, which is odd. Not a bad beer but not great either. Not sure Eddie would drink it. Up the irons!

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Bottle: a solid brown 500mL bottle with an Iron Maiden Eddie label. Puts me on edge, as the 'TV series / musician endorsed' beers I have had to date have been produced to be 100% completely ordinary.

Appearance: pours a heavy amber with light sporadic carbonation. A weak head pops up and dissipates completely within about 10 seconds. No lacing.

Aroma: plenty of caramel and toffee with some fruit esters.

Taste: some awkward caramel flavours with some grains behind. Those fruits on the nose don't come through to the palate. Disappointing and flat.

Aftertaste: flavours trail along for a time, but again is nothing special.

Overall: as expected, a very average / passable English ale that proves that one should avoid any beer endorsed by musicians. Not bad stuff, but certainly not brilliant, and the incredibly high price is simply laughable. All things considered, one to avoid.

Atmosphere is pretty good. Deep hue, continually rising effervescence, slight head, and some solid spiderweb lacing. Nose is sourdough bread with a piney hop, and a woody component. Hops, bitter fruit pith, and dish soap all culminates in a steely shallow end. Overall, this is an okay quaff.

"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. Brewed in the style of an ESB. A collaborative ale between Robinsons Brewery and Iron Maiden's Bruce Dickinson. Released in 1 Pt, .9fl oz. bottles as an exclusive one-off beer.

Poured from a 16.9 oz. bottle to a pint glass. Served above 47º Fahrenheit.

(Appearance) An aggressive pour yields a creamy eggshell white head with a touch of froth over a deep gold amber body. Clarity is high despite some thin flecked sediment in tow. Carbonation is light and sparse. Retention is good, lacing is light and curtained. 4.25

(Smell) Buttered biscuit pale malts, light grainy caramel sweetness and assertive mineral notes. Hops are very herbaceous and somewhat one-dimensional. Potency is light/medium. 3.25

(Taste) Grainy light caramel toffee note with a cracker sweetness and understated body. Finishes mildly dry with an herbal, musty hop note and a soft acidity. Shallow in sweetness and body, this is one of the thinner-drinking British Ales of the ones I have tried. 3

(Mouthfeel) Thin and watery with a soft sweetness. Carbonation adds some froth to the texture. Body is light for the style and light+ overall. Alcohol presence is very light. 3

(Overall) Whether the body and profile of this beer is an homage to the "light brigade" or just indicative of an intentionally uncomplicated ale, I was fairly underwhelmed in general. The malt profile, although clean and enjoyable, was lacking in body and sweetness. The hop profile was also lacking, although potent enough on herbaceous fronts, it wasn't anything spectacular. While I love Iron Maiden's music, I think Bruce Dickinson's talents in the beer industry need to be further honed, let's hope for the best with a potential follow up, "Number of the Yeast". 3.25
