    Trooper is a premium British beer inspired by Iron Maiden and handcrafted at Robinsons brewery. Being a real ale enthusiast, vocalist Bruce Dickinson has developed a beer which has true depth of character. 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 Charge Of The Light Brigade, which inspired the Iron Maiden song The Trooper, took place at the Battle Of Balaclava (1854) during the Crimean War when 6—British cavalry courageously charged the massed Russian artillery. This gallant but foolhardy assault resulted in a massive loss of life and came about due to a misunderstanding of an order given by the commanding officer, Lord Raglan.

  2. For a brief, horrific moment there I misread it and thought the beer was called Tropper.

  3. Iron Maiden and beer, two of my favourite things.
  4. A sobering notion indeed. Not reported as spam, 'cos it's amusing, it's about beer, and it involves someone called Bruce.

  11. Bowie? You sure? He didn't get to be the Thin White Duke by drinking real ale, y'know.

    Loving that post BTW, fascinating and inspiring. Now, I'm thinking image. Shane MacGowan's available...

    Shame it's Robinson's; their bitter is generally vile. That said, the rotten-potato stench of their brewery going full tilt on a Thursday does actually improve the smell of Stockport Underbank.

    That place is long overdue another Peterloo.
