I tried this from the bottle poured chilled in a tulip.

The color is dark crimson with a thickly hazed appearance and thin off white head iwth fine bead and lace that sticks in spots. The smell has biscuit scented malt with toasted quality and hints of yeast with mild hop odor and light caramel smell. The feel is toasty with lightly hoppy and subtle yeast texture with mild alcohol and dry semi-bitter finish with medium body in general.

The taste is malt forward with slight toasted grain and mild yeast flavor which leads to an herbal and pine-like hop taste with a hint of citrus rind and very dry finish with subtle alcohol in the flavor warming toward the lingering bitter flavor. This is a decent ale with semi-dry and bitter quality with low hop flavor and moderately high alcohol for the style.

DATE: June 6, 2015... GLASSWARE: Brew at the Zoo pint... OCCASION: Catching up with Game of Thrones... APPEARANCE: Translucent copper/amber body and a white, cloudlike trail of lacing; almost no effervescence...AROMA: pleasant maltiness and a spike of flowery hops--some citrus and orange as well; mellow and appealing... PALATE: medium-bodied and smooth, with little life but reasonably creamy finish... TASTE: caramel malts take center stage, owning a throaty, metallic dominance; buttery, nutty qualities surface late; some hop crunch balances the experience; a good balance is struck... OVERALL: with grapefruit, a slightly nuanced approach to an amber, with a demonstrative 7% ABV to boot....worthy of a pairing with a night with the epic power of Westeros...
