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.

Iron Maiden, will it have me screaming for vengeance? Let's give it a whirl. Popping the top I get a very bready malt smell. Pours to a deep golden brown with a three finger head that has a creamy top. On the taste I get a nice balanced slightly bitter solid brew that is common but tasty. Mouthfeel is solid. If any beer is a sessioner, it's this one. Nice ABV @ 4.7 and good ordinary but inoffensive taste. For an everyday drinker this one is a winner.

Appearance is amber and the aroma is of malt and with a hint of lemon. Taste is bitter, and has a light aftertaste to it. Iron Maiden Trooper is a good beer, has plenty of character, but I found the aftertaste a bit underwhelming. I would say that Trooper is a type of beer that takes its time to get used to. In other words, the more you have have it, the more you'll enjoy it.

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.
