    "Quest For IRON MAIDEN BEER"


    In a time when dinosaurs walked the earth
    When the land was swamp and caves were home
    In an age when prize possession was IRON MAIDEN BEER
    To search for landscapes men would roam.

    Then the tribes they came to steal their IRON MAIDEN BEER
    And the wolves they howled into the night
    As they fought a vicious angry battle
    to save the power of warmth and light.

    Drawn by Quest for IRON MAIDEN BEER
    They searched all through the land
    Drawn by Quest for IRON MAIDEN BEER
    Discovery of man.

    And they thought that when the embers died away
    That the flame of life had burnt and died
    Didn't know the sparks that made the IRON MAIDEN BEER
    Were made by rubbing stick and stone.

    So they ploughed through forest and swamps of danger
    And they fought the cannibal tribes and beasts
    In the search to find another IRON MAIDEN BEER
    To regain the power of life and heat.

    Drawn by Quest for IRON MAIDEN BEER
    They searched across the land
    Drawn by Quest for IRON MAIDEN BEER
    Discovery of man.

    After popping it open the IRON MAIDEN beer plays The Trooper riff while you are pouring it into a glass

    Have seen that for the last 6 months or so but I thought it might be a cheaper beer that costs more for the name. Might have to try it out now. 4.7% ABV is like water to me, though. I guess that's nothing to be bragging about.

    It's not the best sadly as it's made by Robinsons, just a below average bitter. They should have rebranded Old Tom instead.

    I had some at a bottle share a while back. OK (at best) if fresh, but the shelf life of a bitter is fairly short.

    I had it a few months ago and liked it as well. The Eddie label didn't hurt, either.

    I enjoy it, although it's pretty expensive for what it is. It is a good excuse for to try some British ales. I have Fuller's London Pride right now.
