look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

750ml corked and caged bottle. Bottled on 2/15/2013. Served in a Trappist goblet. Drank while watching Game of Thrones

Appearance: Pours a hazy honey yellow color with 2 fingers of a frothy white head with good retention. Lots of visible carbonation streaming throughout the glass

Smell: Cereal grain, Belgian yeast, sweet malt, lemon, spices.

Taste: Belgian yeast, grain, lemongrass, light malt sweetness, pineapple, hint of funk

Mouthfeel: Light side of medium bodied. Relatively high carbonation, but doesn't tear up your tongue.

Overall: I bought this almost entirely for the GoT tie in, so I didn't have too high expectations going in. I wasn't a fan of the aroma, but overall this was a pretty good beer. I'd have it again, but given the price per ounce, I probably won't buy it again.

On tap at Verdugo Bar in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours a clear yellow with a foamy off-white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, fruit, and slight spice aromas. Taste is much the same with a grain flavor on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

on tap a BBC Plymouth MA

Cloudy bright hay color with a thin head. Despite the seeming foamy frailty of this beer a horseshoe of retention hangs of my for most of the experience and leaves a few drifts of lace.

Smells like sharp sun baked plywood sawdust and lemonade. A little toasted wheat. Tastes the same. Really, dry with a big sweet sugared lemon rind lump in the middle. Between the GoP and lemon rind Iron Throne reminds me of a beefy, Belgian Sam Adams summer ale.

When I think of Game of Thrones the Wall and Winterfell come to mind first. Bright and refreshing this is more of a King's Landing or Old Town beer. The Arbor came to mind specifically. I am a fantasy geek.
