Iron Maiden fans are intense. Just ask Marcos Motolo, the Brazilian priest who festooned his body with 162 Maiden tattoos, or the British guy who changed his name to match the band’s. Now hard-core devotees can prove their fealty by slamming bottles of Trooper, a cask ale named after the band’s 1983 single. The beer, which hit LCBO shelves at the end of September, is a hoppy golden ale with malt flavours, hints of lemon and, most importantly, a creepy label emblazoned with mascot Eddie the Head.
