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

Always up for Ommegang, this one opened with resounding pop!

Pours honey colored with a pinky of pearl colored head. Average head retention & a trace of lacing

S: Pears & apple skins

T: Follows the nose, some lemon as well, plus honey suckle up front. Honey sweetness, dryness, just a whisper of pineapple as this warms. Finishes fruitty, dry, with some golden delicious apple sweetness

MF: Light bodied, fairly soft carbonation, nice balance, but would've preffered heavier hopping

Much like the series, this got my attention, but failed to hold it. Not one of Ommegang's better offerings, but drinkable enough & true to the style. Worth a try, I guess
