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.

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

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

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.
