That’s right, folks.
More than 5 million beer drinkers have bad taste.
Yes, I do think that Iron Maiden’s beer blows. I find its flavor to be bland, and think there are at least 25 other beers I’d rather drink first.
I had one pint of the stuff, and nearly quit drinking, it was so bad.
Maybe it’s because the Iron Maiden dudes are old, and their taste buds aren’t what they once were. That’s the only reason I can conceive for the band’s decision to lend its name to this swill.
Reports claim that the Trooper beer has sold 5 million pints since its launch one year ago, with almost half of it brewed for the export market.
Trooper is currently distributed in 40 countries, including the U.S.
As U.K. beer in general struggled to raise the bar, with sales dropping by nearly 5 percent last year, worldwide demand for Trooper ale has both stunned and delighted Robinsons, the makers of that horrid ale.
I’d rather drink Boris Yeltsin’s piss.
