Fucking Morrisons only again in the UK. Angry This is after they previously just said 'UK supermarkets nationwide'. The real kicker is that I was in Morrisons just yesterday looking for it because it was also originally announced to be on shelves from February 19th, but apparently it only came out today. 

These guys could not organise a piss-up in a brewery.

I managed to find some Trooper ale here in Christchurch, NZ with a lot of difficulty. Eventually found a supermarket where the guy in charge of the booze department is a Maiden fan (since 1981!) and makes sure there's always a supply. It's bloody expensive by the time it gets to New Zealand, but I thought it was a more than decent drop.

I'm not so fond of the golden ale style so I don't expect this will be one I'll drink too often. It may surprise me.

I just wish the brewery would get their heads out of their arses and can it with the whole limited edition crap they enforced on the Trooper 666, Red n Black and Hallowed. I never did get to try the full strength Red n Black because of that nonsense. Well that and their exclusivity arrangement with Morrisons, who then elected not to even stock it in every store. They kind of learned their lesson with the Hallowed but they still messed that up by treating it as a Halloween beer (as any Iron Maiden fan knows - it isn't), so even though it should still be on shelves it isn't.

This news forum has been almost entirely obituaries lately so here's something much enjoyable - beer!

Robinsons brewery and Iron Maiden's Bruce Dickinson have collaborated again to bring the latest in the Trooper beer range - Light Brigade. This 4.1% golden ale is the fifth beer in the range and the first since the original Trooper not to be a limited edition. The beer is also brewed in aide of the Help for Heroes charity.



While most band branded alcohol is cash in on the name crap, Dickinson is actually involved in the creation of the Trooper beers and the ones I've personally tried are decent.
