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.

Appearance is crystal clear amber, with an appropriate head. Smell is nothing special, but for this style I don't expect it to be. This is an easy-drinking, well balanced British ale that tastes like a British ale should. An excellent example of the style, marred only by the high price tag.

1 PT 0.9 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in an imperial nonic

A - It is clear and amber in color. It is capped with several inches of off-white head.

S - I smell fresh cut grass. It also has a metallic smell.

T - I taste some toast and light caramel.

M - Thin

O - I have noticed that every beer label that has to proclaim itself a "premium" beer is usually not good. This is no exception.

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~
