Robinsons Brewery has announced another flavor to be joining the Iron Maiden beer family. Bruce Dickinson partnered with Robinsons Brewery for the original Trooper Ale. After it became a monumental success the brewery released two other beers: Hallowed and Light Brigade. Joining the Iron Maiden beer family, Bruce Dickinson and Robinsons Brewery are proud to introduce their latest masterpiece:
Bruce Dickinson and Robinsons Brewery have announced that their new creation, TEARS OF BLAZE. When asked to describe the idea behind this beer, Bruce Dickinson had this to say:
“When Robinsons approached me after our successful Iron Maiden line about coming up with a new beer, I thought to myself, “What better beer than to come up with one honoring the fallen hero of Iron Maiden, Blaze Bayley. I mean, he didn’t die or anything but the poor chap got canned. After a night of drinking, ‘arry managed to capture his tears in a shot glass and save them for some odd reason. When I found this out I thought it would be brilliant to add the tears of Blaze Bayley to the malt in order to honor him.”
1/1o of the proceeds of each 12 pack sold will go towards the Blaze Bayley Hair Restoration Fund. “Have you seen the bloke’s head?” said Dickinson. “The poor sod looks like Pizza the Hutt from Space Balls. I mean, I took the poor lad’s job. It’s the least I can do for him.” During a recent taste test, one drinker described the beer it detail:
Amber filtered with moderate carbonation, topped with 2 fingers of light amber head.
Smells very malt forward, with hints of caramel, black tea, citrus and failure.
Tastes very bitter and even had a depressive quality that pervades the last 2/3 of the palate. Slight acidity and saltiness (probably from the tears) to it as well.
Light body, moderate to low carbonation, felt absolutely beaten down by life after finishing it.
Tears of Blaze will be hitting stores Worldwide staring on April 1, 2o18.
