    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.

    Is it available on draught? Like a bit of real ale.

    I loathe metal and everything associated with it except Ted Nugent's sense of humor. I might drink Trooper if they put Michael Caine or Stanley Baker on the label, though...

    Only one pub - in relatively recent years that I can think of that still sold ale from the wood - real ale. The Wonston Arms - South Wonston near Worthy Down - then RAPC. Harry did not have a cellar so the barrels were lined up along the back of the bar, ale from the tap, no bloody chiller or sparkler or yards of plastic pipes to murder the brewers art -wet sacks over the barrels during summer! A free house that I believe is up for sale.

    I just picked up two bottles at my local package store in Orange, Connecticut. I can't wait to try it out.

    It's not my favourite ale, but it's up in the 'perfectly quaffable' range. Mention of Goldings hops in the first description brings my local brewery, Shepherd Neame, to mind (the do a seasonal Goldings brew)

    Of course, there's also a WW2 connection in the form of Lieut.Gen. Sir Philip Neame VC., etc.
