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.

Sweet, straw, a little fruity, light citrus. Very light, smooth, and delicious. Yeast, wheat, citrus, a little sweetness. Fairly similar to the aroma. I can taste the paradise.

750 ml. corked ní caged bottle- Pours slightly hazy and lively golden with a two finger white head that never quite goes away. Aroma is Belgian, would love to have a regular old Duvel here, because it smells like I remember Duvel smelling, banana, yeast, beer. The taste is very smooth, creamy, delicious, banana is prominent, yeasty, lemon. Carbonation is high, body is medium and coats the mouth leaving the taste long after the swallow. Duvel is one of the best beers in the world, and this is a nice companion.

Dr_Fellini (356) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Deep golden color with a moderate white white. Aroma is very yeasty, with little to no hop character. Taste is smooth, with no bitter or sour notes, and a very mild sweet profile. Yeast is apparent in taste as well. Fills the palate for a blonde ale, with a solid body and a oily mouthfeel. Decent beer for style, bot not sure it deserves the praise ratebeer has given it. Definitely had better blonde ales.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUN 6, 2013
750ml bottle. Clearish golden with a foamy white head. Aroma is lots of spicy Belgian yeast esters, herbal tea, hay and honey malt. Flavor is zesty spice with a light tartness, a smooth balancing hop bitterness and cereal grain. Light body with active carbonation. Very refreshing and crisp with lots of yeast and hop character.

Drank in a snifter on tap. Nice light zesty appearance and taste...not much hint of alcohol but finished with an enjoyable pre-dinner buzz ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750ml bottle. Looks good, deep hazy orange yellow, big head, lively carbonation. Aroma is fruity, little sourness. Taste is some spice, white wine, mild Belgian yeast. Overall, I was kind of expecting more but it was decent for style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

popery (1349) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Pours a golden orange color. Nice and bright. A bit cloudy. Big white head. Lots of lacing and great retention. Good looking beer. Big fresh pale malt aroma. Bright, sweet grain. Candy lemons and apricots in the aroma. Some nice earthy flavors from the yeast. A little bit of mint and other herbal flavors. Some fruity peppercorn spice. Hops seem floral and a touch grassy. The taste starts with a sweet, bready grain note. Then, the beer dries out some, and herbal and earthy flavors start to come out. Thereís lemon skin, peppercorns and a light woodiness. The finish is fairly dry with a grassy hop flavor, mildly bitter. Mouthfeel is effervescent. Prickly little bubbles. Light body. Pretty good beer, but it doesnít really stand out for me and seems a touch forgettable.

Suttree (5013) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 2, 2013
See, Iím only 4 episodes from season 1 in, so I donít feel like I should be making a bunch of references yet because I donít really know enough. I could say "Tastes like boobs and incest", I suppose, because I understand that those are fairly constant themes throughout. Anyway, nice beer, fruity and spicy, with a Nice crisp finish.
