  • SRM Color : 13
  • Brewer: Robinsons Brewery
  • Brewer's 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.
  • Recommended Glassware: A Nonic
  • Russ' rating: 8.5 of 10
  • With the brew: Rolling Bass, and a Galloping Rythm. What Else?
  • Comments: I cracked this one after letting it sit on the counter for 15 minutes so that it would not be too cold. It has an instantly recognizable malty Ale aroma. The pour is slightly slower than I expected, but resulted in a nice finger-thick head of average ( 0.5mm - 0.7mm ) bubbles. TROOPER (yes all caps) is not overly hoppy, and has a sweet fruity finish. It is an exceptionally well balanced  collection of component flavors and makes for a very drinkable beer. Cheers to Stann, Bill, Brad, Jeff, and Eddie the Head.
