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.

Dark amber body with a rich, dense, creamy head (4.0). Big malt aroma; caramel and brown sugar (3.75). Mild toasted grain flavors with mildly popping hop bitterness (3.25). Medium body; smooth and somewhat watery mouthfeel; semi-dry finish (3.25).

I expected a rather disappointing beer while looking through the other reviews. Well, it wasn't too disappointing, but it's a shame the flavor and mouthfeel didn't live up to what the appearance and aroma suggested. Okay for what it is, which seems to me more of a marketing thing with its Iron Maiden label theme rather than a really good beer for the style. Strong presentation but weak flavored.

The color of the beer is a classic copper with a golden foam. The aroma is malty and slightly smoky. The taste is also malty with some smoky notes. Tastes a little bit of wet cardboard and butterscotch despite the relatively thin body.

A bit boring for being an ESB, I think
