rock musicians collaborating with breweries for their own brand of adult soda seems like a no-brainer move. cos’ we all know that rock n’ roll and booze (and the other erhmm.. ‘thing’) kind of goes hand-in-hand, like Nachos and Salsa sauce. joining this growing number of collaborations is the Iron Maiden Trooper Ale brewed by UK brewer Robinsons with Iron Maiden front man, Bruce Dickinson playing a major part in the development of this unique flavor beer. the name Trooper, in case you haven’t got a clue, is taken from the metal band’s song. this traditional English ale is the result of a concoction of Bobec, Goldings and Cascade hops that gives it the deep golden appearance and a taste with a subtle hint of lemon. the best part is, it is an Ale with just about the right alcohol content of 4.8 percent, which makes it an excellent beverage for a hot afternoon day.

the Iron Maiden Trooper Ale is not available to United States yet, but it is available quite a handful of countries including most EU nations, Australia, New Zealand et cetera. as for pricing, it goes for £15.60 (about US$25) per case of eight x 500ml in the UK. price for other countries may vary depending on taxes and duties. catch a video below of Bruce bringing you up to speed on the creation of Trooper. man, that dude don’t seem to age after all these years!
