Subby, I hope you are not that ignorant.

The beer, however, looks interesting.

I thought it was frowned upon to call out a Farker in a headline.

Can we get it in the US, or will it be all skanked out by the travel?

Do want.

Good to see it's a Real Ale, and not just some dumb Beck's knock-off

Will "Raise your irons!" be replaced by "Raise your Troopers!"?

If that stuff sells, they'll all be wearing gold-plated diapers.

So this would either fall into BJCP 8B or 8C guidelines (Special Bitter/Exta Special Bitter). At 4.7% ABV its a little high for the 8B classification. Adding lemon flavoring adjuncts sounds like fail for this style...

As far as the ESB style goes I'd take a Fuller's or Hobgoblin over this any day.

Does this mean they'll be serving it on Ed Force One?

"Can I play with madness" has all the Iron Maiden sourced cowbell one could ever need.

I've always been a bit meh about Hobgoblin in bottles and much prefer Fuller's. Will give this a try if i ever see it but with Adnams and Woodfordes close by i am spoiled by small/medium brewers.

This. RIP Clive.

They should have made a stout and called it Beer of the Dark.
 
2013-03-14 06:12:14 PM
I prefer Iron Maiden's Moonshine, "Wasted Years."

Oh, Clive died?  I did not know that.  :C

Golden ale with hints of lemon? Sounds a little boring but I will buy one for the bottle if nothing else. Will go next to my Holy Grail Ale.

The Ales That Men Brew!

Will it have 6.66% ABV?

So understand
Don't waste your time always searching for those wasted beers,
Face down... you can't stand,
And realize you're sh*tting in your golden pee.

Just in case no one pointed this out, Iron Maiden!=Blue Oyster Cult.

Bruce Dickinson from Iron Maiden is not the same Bruce Dickinson from the SNL cowbell sketch. (Of course, the real Bruce Dickinson that was portrayed by Chris Walken didn't even produce "Don't Fear the Reaper", so it's all lies.)

Subby, when he put the "more cowbell" ref in the headline.

I took that as an association with the name "Bruce Dickinson". If your name is Bruce Dickinson, you'd better be prepared to be mentioned in the same sentence as cowbells.
