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

Poured from the standard 750ml into a beer stein. Large amount of head - more so than perhaps any other Ommegang brew I've tried. Very citrusy, crisp, but still smooth and quite tasty. I've yet to dislike an offering from their GoT run, and this is no exception.

Pours a clear golden color with a thick foamy head. Head retention and lacing are excellent. Has a Belgian yeast aroma. Maybe mild citrus. Belgian yeast taste. Very mild citrus. Higher than normal carbonation. Light bodied. Good berr.

750ml Bottle; Corked & caged; 6.5%ABV; No "Bottled on Date"; Acquired Nov./Dec. 2015; Poured into an Ommegang Brew Stem.

A: No doubt as to the bottle conditioning, as with several other Ommegang Brews. POPs like fine Champagne! Pours a beautiful, cloudy, blonde, golden hue, with a 3-finger pure white head that slowly dissapates, leaving lots of lacing on the glass.

N: Yeasty, bready, malty, hoppy, mixed with lemon and orange rind aromas, all very well balanced. ABV is not that great, so it's very well hidden.

T: Slight hoppy bitterness on the front as well as on the finish. Yeast, bread, citrus notes. Fresh orange and lemon rind, without being overwhelming, IMO. Nice balance. Somewhat complex. Alcohol, though low, is very well cloaked, making this brew very easy to drink (I love 750ml bottles for this reason!).

F: Nice mouthfeel. Clean, crisp, refreshing. Semi-dry. Very active on the tungue, due to the bottle conditioning.

O: Brewery Ommegang re-released this brew in autumn 2015. I am very glad they did! This is another VERY fine brew from the Brew Masters at Ommegang! Needless to say, I stocked up on it, just as I did with Three-Eyed Raven! It's clean, refreshing, the citrus element is not overpowering, making this, for me, a very easy brew to drink, and a fine brew to share with others that may not be "into" craft brews (because some may think all craft is heavy, and very strong). If you're still able to find it, I'll encourage you to try it!

CHEERS!!!
