Notes / Commercial Description:
Brewery Ommegang and HBO are partnering on a series of beers inspired by the critically-acclaimed drama Game of Thrones. Launching ahead of the season 3 debut on March 31, Iron Throne, a blonde ale, is the inaugural beer in the series and the result of a creative collaboration between Brewmaster Phil Leinhart and HBO.

“No one enjoys their job more than I do -- producing and developing new brews to delight lovers of fine beer, add to that the opportunity to collaborate on a beer based on the cultural phenomenon of Game of Thrones and exploring ways to make the beer truly reflect aspects from the show. It made us approach development in a completely new way and I think the first edition Iron Throne reveals that. With a Lannister currently on the throne, it made sense to do a delicate, but piercing Golden Blonde Ale with Noble hops. Iron Throne is certainly fair in color and soft in appearance, yet it still possesses a complexity and bite to be on guard for.” -Phil Leinhart, Brewmaster at Brewery Ommegang

The beer pours a fairly decent foamy head that disappears quickly. The beer itself is very opaque with an orangish yellow color. The color resembles the color of orange juice and the top surface appears to be a bit watery. The smell has strong bready malt notes that balance out the orange hop smell. Small hints of spice show through as well as some fruitiness but are too small to be noticeable and dominated by the hop and malt smell. The taste is similar to the smell but more complex. The hops still have an orange smell but the fruity notes are a bit more present and the malts are more subdued to the point that they slightly balance out the hops. The mouthfeel is particularly heavy and thick with biting carbonation. Overall, a decent brew but nothing I would decapitate a noble and start a war or consort with dark forces for.
