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.
