LIGHT BRIGADE – a new brew from IRON MAIDEN and ROBINSONS BREWERY developed in support of Help for Heroes 
 
Inspired by their visit to Help for Heroes at Tedworth House, IRON MAIDEN vocalist and ale aficionado Bruce Dickinson and Robinsons’ Head Brewer, Martyn Weeks have crafted LIGHT BRIGADE as a unique interpretation of a sessionable golden ale. At 4.1% ABV in 500ml bottle, LIGHT BRIGADE is lower in ABV but still has all the powerful flavours you’d expect from TROOPER. 
 
For each pint of LIGHT BRIGADE purchased, we will donate 6p to Help for Heroes.

PREMIUM ALE 
 
............................................................................................................................................................................................................ 
 
A strong character, full of hope and larger than life. A beer you don't meet every day and one designed to win awards. Deceptively unassuming, Double Hop is the quiet prodigal son, well refined with hidden depth; the outgoing, adventurous type. 
 
Demanding respect, this ale is not to be taken lightly. The strong silent type, worldly yet with its feet firmly planted in its northern birthplace. 
 
A full-bodied classic, with a fascinating balance of rich, roasted malt and tangy citric fruit. Perfect! 
 
Contains: Malted BARLEY and WHEAT.
