COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Collaboration with HBO for the Game of Thrones series.

Blonde ale with malty sweetness and a touch of fruity spiciness, Noble Hops aromas and notes of citrus. Suitable to serve to kings, or pretenders to the iron throne.

Pour slowly so as to not disturb the yeast sediment, but with enough vigor to create a luxurious head and release the rich bouquet.

Listed as a blonde ale on the bottle, far from the assembly line of boring blond craft beers. Great spicy belgian sweetness. Still has a basic grainy body but tons of flavor.

fakebeersnob (307) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - DEC 18, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2015 Pours a light slightly cloudy copper, with a foamy white head that settles to a soapy lacing. Aroma is of very faint Belgium yeast and bubblegum. Very lively carbonation....too lively? Some peppery spiceness hits the tongue with the carbonation. I am getting some sourness in this - which does not seem correct. I am a very big fan of this brewery, but this seems like a total miss to me. Not understanding the praise for this one. RERATE: Unsure if I had a bad bottle, or a not properly cleaned glass - but this deserves a re-rate over my initial 2.9 rating. Still slightly over-carbonated for my liking. The sourness that was coming on strong before is not there. There is a touch of citrus - lemon? Some peppery spiciness, and light yeast. The sourness replaced with a light sweetness. Still not a favorite from this brewery, and will probably not ever get again - but it is a decent light Belgium ale.

islay (2084) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 17, 2015
Approximately 5 oz. from a 750 mL bottle. Consumed on 12-16-15. Pours a cloudy, dark gold to bronze with a moderate to large amount of cream to beige-colored head. Strong, yeasty, floral, tart aroma. Bubblegum scent. Very nice, Belgian ale smell. Lightly tart, dry taste. A bit of pepper spiciness. Pleasant but not memorable flavor. Chalk in the finish and aftertaste; lightly astringent aftertaste. Medium body. Smooth and frothy in the palate, but the palate effects are unremarkable. Gets off to a good start, but ends up underwhelming. Enjoyable beer but not a notably good one.

A good blonde belgian. Has a nice floral taste and finish. Looks great in the glass.

Sirmixsomewhat (180) - Paoli, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2015
Iron Throne pours a beautiful shade of gold, but thatís about all it has going for it thatís well above average, which is strange for Ommegang. I donít smell anything, its taste is not offensive but I doubt Iíll remember it when I finish this glass, and it feels almost bitter on the tongue. An average beer at best.

Capa (2566) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - DEC 7, 2015
Hazy golden with a tall white head. Fresh citrus, yeast, spice, a bit of candied fruit. Medium bodied with loads of carbonation. Finishes long, spicy, a bit sweet.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange yellow with medium frothy off white head that lasts. The aroma is wheat, clove, banana, spice. Medium mouth feel with strong wheat, citrus, spicy finish, good.

This was a decent belgian offering from Ommegang, but not really a standout among the style. Good, but a bit thin at times.

750 ml re released bottle purchased at giant eagle in westerville. Ommegang Game Of Thrones #1 - Iron Throne Ale is a hazy light golden brew with a full head of white bubbles. Nose is esters and belgian hops. Taste is front of the tongue sharpness, with good carbonation. Middle flavor is sweet with good belgian yeast, a bit sour and a bit funky. body is lively as i mentioned and medium. An interesting beer. very glad they rereleased it so i could complete my series.
