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

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 - pale golden opaque beer, large white head disappeared quickly
S - heavy banana notes, not all that great a smell for an ommegang beer
T - super banana flavor, very heavy
M - probably the best part, very easily drinkable for the less then ideal taste
O - good try, but just like game of thrones looks prettier than it is

A: pours a ear golden yellow with three fingers of white head that fades into a thin cap with good lacing.

S: Belgian spices with candy sugar and sweet breads and a medicinal aroma.

T: similar to the aroma, spices, candy sugar, and bitter, hearty yeast and bread. The finish is lightly bitter with a slight medicinal taste.

M: medium-light body with medium body, this beer is light and drinkable.

O: an alright beer overall, but a bit simplistic and medicinal. It's a shame that the beer associated with such a great show is so mediocre.
