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.

degbert (1117) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 12, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear, glowing gold with a high, lacy, rocky white head; a LOT of foam on this one, and it doesn’t go away very fast. Nose is biscuity and dry with overtones of phenols, nutmeg, and tart fruit. Nutty on the tongue, with an undertone of dry acidity and a spicy astringency. Mouthfeel is, as a counterpoint, round and silky. Good, and definitely suitable for serving to the next dead king, whoever he is.

jredmond (5332) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JAN 2, 2014
Bottle. Pours a golden body with frothy white lacing. Aroma is belgian candy, malt, spice and sugary booze. Mouthfeel is slick with notes of yeast, sweet candy malt, alcohol sting, clove, spice and a bitter floral character.

wilderthanyou (758) - Guelph, CANADA - DEC 29, 2013
Pours a solid straw gold with a big white foamy cap. The aroma is lemon, grain, wet grass, wet dog, and urinal. . . it’s as unappealing as it sounds. The flavour is sweet upfront, then grainy, bread, honey, bit of lemon, finishes lightly sweet and bready with a lingering note of honey. It would be a decent offering if I could only get around the aroma.

jercraigs (7812) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 26, 2013
2013-11-29. Hazy dark yellow body with a nice foamy white head. Aroma has mild musty overtones and pale malt. Flavour is lightly tart, with mild lemony touches, mild pale malt core. Average bodied palate, soft carbonation. Bottle from the LCBO, Toronto

neuromatt (1154) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 14, 2013
750 mL bottle from the LCBO, served in a stem glass. Pours hazy golden with a moderate white head that remains and leaves a minimal amount of lace. The nose has prominent grain, piney hops and Belgian spice, along with honey and pale malts. The flavour is balanced between moderately sweet pale malts, honey, citrus and grains on one hand and moderate piney bitterness with peppery spice on the other. The finish is long and hop-predominant, with subtle peppery spice and a hint of honey sweetness. On the palate it is medium in body with a dryish texture and lively carbonation. Overall this is a nice Belgian style blonde ale. It is fairly complex for the ABV and quite well made. A joy to drink. 2013-09-28

Pours a golden color with a medium sized foamy white head. Notes of fruit, spice, caramel malt, orange citrus, and catty hops. Nice balance and long finish.

Headbanger (3303) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - NOV 29, 2013
750ml bottle 11/2813 (Jack’s-Mountain Home)-Pours a clear golden with yeast, citrus, and hops. Taste of the same with more yeast and citrus. This light to medium bodied brew is well balanced and quite easy to drink. This beer ROCKS.

on tap @ Beer Belly Deli in Syracuse, solid hazy yellow pour with a frothy head, good aroma with some tasty citrus hops, very cool logo on the coaster they gave me with the beer. Cool idea for a beer, well executed promotional beer
