3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Corked and caged 705mL. Nose sweet and candyish, golden with a little spice, pours gorgeous rich golden with ample carbonation and a very large, very frothy bright white head. Taste dry with a little rubber/yeast leftover, golden and sunny pils malt character fresh and a touch grainy; light phenolic pepper and sweetness, some citrus peel presumably from the yeast. Light very very smooth and rounding noble hops, remind me a bit of Poperings Hommelbier without quite the bite. Gentle honey and floral accents, very smooth and nice. Lightly chalky feel, very crisp, medium-full body. Straightforward but bright and clean, refreshes and delights. Beautiful! Could drink this daily, nicely digestible. [2015.11.17: 3.9]
