Over a quarter of a million pints have been pre-sold in the UK so far, with over 100 countries set to stock the ale.

“I’m a lifelong fan of traditional English ale; I thought I’d died and gone to heaven when we were asked to create our own beer,” says Bruce Dickinson, who took a hands (and, we suspect, taste)-on approach to the creation of the drink. “I have to say that I was very nervous: Robinsons are the only people I have had to audition for in 30 years. Their magic has been to create the alchemical wedding of flavour and texture that is Trooper. I love it.”
