RAT Rock News

Iron Maiden and the list of their beer offerings from Robinsons Brewery keeps growing with its latest label, Trooper Nitro.

Trooper Nitro is the fourth edition of the original Trooper Ale from Robinsons Brewery.  Available in kegs only, Trooper Nitro will be charged with nitrogen and CO2 gasses.

In a statement, Trooper Brand Manager Sam Kennerley said, “Our keg version of Trooper has been extremely popular but after listening to feedback from our customers and numerous on-trade trials, which had outstanding results, we decided to switch to mixed gas. The result – an awesome longer lasting keg-conditioned Trooper ale whose deep and complex flavor has been enhanced with a cooler temperature and a perfect serve.”

Kennerley also said, “Trooper Nitro is the first of many exciting projects with Bruce [Dickinson] and Iron Maiden that are in the pipeline for Trooper in 2019. Stay tuned”.

More Iron Maiden beer projects in 2019? We all can drink to that.
