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.

Poured into an Irish pint glass.

Look: A really rich caramel colored body sits under a thick cream colored head. The head recedes to a thick layer of film, leaving sheets of lacing on the glass.

Aroma: Malty, some faint caramel notes, earthy tea leaves.

Taste: Just a touch of malts on the front end followed by a lot of tea-like tanginess. It finishes bitter with some sourness.

Mouthfeel: A very nice weight about it, goes down easy.

Overall: Could do with just a bit more caramel sweetness in the taste, but still a very enjoyable ESB.

LOOK: Beautiful Golden Carmel in Color, Pours Minimal White Foamy Head that Dissipates Quickly, Minimal and Spotty Lacing

SMELL: Very Subtle Hoppy Scent, Mild Lemon Aroma, Nearly Underwhelms you with Scent

TASTE: Smooth, Delicious, and Crisp, I did NOT find it Bitter at all. Loved the Malty/Lemon Flavor

FEEL: Medium Carbonation that works well with the taste, Slightly Dry after the Swallow

OVERALL: A Very Good Beer that I Enjoyed VERY much...I would Definitely Recommend this Beer to Friends

First off, bought this as a novelty because I love me some Maiden! Kept the bottle around a while, so I was not sure if the taste would be totally fresh or not. What I will say is that all novelty factor aside, this beer rocks! It is extremely smooth. The right mix of carbonation, foam and lace mixed with a soft, aroma of hops. Very well pleased and totally surprised by how good this beer is! The taste is very crisp and clean and not bitter at all. This is definitely one of the better surprises I have tried in a long while. Hope to find more soon!
