FEARnet dedicates this post to former Iron Maiden drummer Clive Burr, who we're sorry to say passed away last night. Clive had a long history of illness, incluing Multiple Sclerosis, and died peacefully in his sleep. One of classic metal's outstanding percussionists, Clive's legacy includes the first three Maiden albums, particularly the immortal Number of the Beast. Keep him in your thoughts today, and if you want to offer a toast in his honor, we've got just the thing...
Named after the song Trooper, Iron Maiden’s brew was developed by Bruce Dickinson himself. Although it’s unclear what beer has to do with the Charge of the Light Brigade, it sounds quite tasty.
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.
