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

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A - Hazy pale yellow with a foamy white head.

S - Lemon zest, bubblegum, yeasty esters, malt sweetness, light spice.

T - More spice than aroma, bubblegum, light clove, fruity but can't pick out an individual fruit, grainy malt in the finish, lingering yeasty esters.

M - Highly carbonated at first but settles to smooth and creamy.

D - Solid beer but was hoping for more for a special release with this much hype.

This brew pours a beautiful full head thats mouthwatering to look at. The aroma is subtle but interesting. The taste is decent, not the best brew I have had by any means but very much drinkable. The mouthfeel is crisp, this beer for what it is is worth a look. Ommegang makes some awesome brews but in the end I bought this for the bottle.

Bottom Line: cool bottle...average beer.

A-Cloudy yellow, well carbonated, three finger light fluffy head.

S-Wheat, grass, lemon and orange. Something is slightly off though.

T-Very wheat heavy, however the balance is off. The lemon, orange and grass do not really go together.

M-Light to medium bodied, well carbonated but a tad watery,

O-Ommegang doesn't usually miss, but maybe because of the wide audience they toned it down a little bit?
