Served in a Trooper shaker pint glass.

While wearing a Trooper (beer) T-shirt. While listening to "The Trooper". Hellz yes. Anyway, this stuff pours a clear amber topped by a couple fingers of creamy light-khaki foam. The nose comprises sweet berries, light green apple, mild biscuit, and flowers. The taste holds notes of biscuit malt, mild grass, flowers, light stonefruits, and a twinge of green apple. The body is a light medium, with a rather light moderate carbonation and a smooth feel. Overall, a pretty damn solid brew. I'm not entirely sure it lives up to the bombast of its same-titled song, but it certainly provides an enjoyable experience.

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.
