British Heavy Metal legends IRON MAIDEN have joined the fold, and have announced the creation of their own beer! Appropriately baptized as the "Trooper" beer, the beer was developed by Bruce Dickinson who is a real ale enthusiast and as a result developed a beer which has true depth of character. Malt flavors 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.
MAIDEN fans, get stoked and remember to always drink responsibly!
