Inspired by Iron Maiden, Trooper is a deep golden ale that looks like molten toffee with a fabulous thick, tight creamy head. It smells deliciously hoppy and malty and I couldn't wait to have a sip.
It has quite an unusual mix of flavours leaving an extremely pleasant taste explosion on the tongue: tangy, sweet, metallic and slightly citrus, but they all work so very well together. It has a nice sweet toffee and biscuit flavour with only a slight hint of citrus which makes it very refreshing. It's relatively softly carbonated so feels quite smooth, helped along by the thick milky head; an impressive head that doesn't lace, it sticks to the glass.
I really liked it, it's what I would call a 'proper beer' and one Ale definitely Be Seeing Again!
