The sale of Iron Maiden beer was to begin in Sweden on May 2nd, but the state-run liquor monopoly has raised concerns over the label. The issue arose with "Trooper" beer over the skull and crossbone motif on the label.
"There has been a discussion about the label. The alcohol law stipulates how it can look. We therefore don't yet know when it can be launched," Therese Elmgren at Systembolaget told the Aftonbladet newspaper.
The label on the IRON MAIDEN beer's packaging is taken from the band's single "The Trooper" which was released in 1983.
