    I love Maiden and I love ale. Bruce Dickinson, lead singer of Maiden, loves real ale and helped put together the recipe for The Trooper, named after one of their best known songs. The song is based on the Charge of the Light Brigade, a wonderfully horrible episode in British warfare history. Thought I would share the info and brag that I found it and had it. A wonderful British pale ale. Mmmmm… Pale ale… Had it in my Dunwich Dark pint glass to merge British Eddie with American horror author HP Lovecraft. The back label gives a brief overview of The Charge.

    Coincidently my partner 'found' this in the local supermarket last night and had to buy it to try even though he isnt really a drinker and doesnt like beer.

    Nice! English pale ales aren't my favorite, but I would've “just picked it up,” too, if I happened upon it. Heck, I actively hunted it down.

    I'm not a fan of ale, although when I was in my early 20s I did discover Theakstons Old Peculiar and I had a summer when I was working in the Lake District where I drank nothing else. I had a little taste of the Iron Maiden one and it was really nice.My friend and her husband got to visit the brewery where it was made (he is a real ale fan) and he was very jealous as my mate got the opportunity to 'knock the head off' a vat of this beer. I'm assuming thats a brewery term I don't understandHere is the empty bottle after our tasting
