Robinsons Family Brewers – Iron Maiden Trooper (Extra Special)

  • 4.70% ABV
  • So this is a beer my wife bought for my stupid friends because they love Iron Maiden. Great, a novelty beer and it isnt really that great of a novelty to start off with. Who the fuck still likes Iron Maiden? I am not going to lie, I used to listen to them back in the 80’s… Back in the 80’s. Yes I was to cool for school and used to smoke cigarettes to show how cool I was. Now I cant walk up a flight of stairs with out getting out of breath. See kids, stay in school or you will turn out like me. Which honestly, is pretty awesome. Fuck. Kids, skip school and smoke. Jesus, forget all that shit and on to the beer. It is surprisingly good considering I didnt have anything but low expectations going into it. It is an ESB which isnt one of my favorite styles but I am really enjoying it. Most of the things I dont like about ESB are the malts, they are a little to much in the spotlight but it is really what I am liking about this. The malts arent over the top and there are some some hops you can actually taste (kind of). It is pretty good.
  • + Buy again (and smoke cigarettes)
