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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: It has a nice somewhat clear deep orange color to it. It has a nice bubbly off-white head that dies down moderately fast and leaves some lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of grainy/buiscuity malts, sweet caramel and some earthy hops.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some grainy malts, faint buiscuity notes, some caramel and light earthy hops.

Mouthfeel: It has a low-medium carbonation with a somewhat light and watery overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by decent flavors and aromas.

Poured a nice golden amber color with a modest head. Aroma has pleasantly floral hops, a bit of caramel, and a grainy maltiness. Flavor is on the sweet side--definitely could use more hops--malt is mostly crystal caramel flavor. Hop flavor is faint, and tends toward the floral. Mouthfeel is a little lower in carbonation than many, but appropriate for style.

Ferocious brand and label, but a very mild and inoffensive beer.

Color- clear dark gold. Medium head.

Aroma- dry dusty barn wood and hint of hops.

Taste- Starts mild and dry from the instant it hits the tongue to the finish, mild hops dominate the intro and quickly overshawod the milds malts yeilding a very harmonius and consistent profile through the finish with a mild hop uptick at the end.

Poured from 500 ml bottle into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass). Tasted June 2014.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: pours an amber color with a healthy 2" head taht falls to some large surface bubbles.

Smell: light malt and some fruity tones comes through to the nose.

Taste: caramel, some breadiness, mild ripe apples, some orange and lemon citrus, and a mild bitterness.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Lightly crisp to start, smoother at the finish. Aftertaste is short lived.

Overall: being a big Iron Maiden fan, I wanted this to be a great beer, but it is only a so-so ESB. At least the bottle will make the display in the music room...

Poured from a brown 16.9 oz. bottle. Has a caramel color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of malts, a touch of sweetness. Taste is kind of mild, malts, some citrus, very light hops, refreshing. Feels light in the mouth and overall is a decent warm weather beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.25

The beer is a solid 3.5 beer in the taste, smell, mouthfeel, and appearance categories. It's enjoyable, not over-powering, and I can imagine that if fresh on tap it would move into the 4+ category. It's enjoyable. I could drink several of these. Mild enough to go well with pub food.

But it gets a full extra .5 points BECAUSE IT HAS FRICKIN' EDDIE ON THE BOTTLE!!!!
