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.

Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy spice sweet flavor with a medium spice sweet finish of moderate to long duration. I would recommend this to a friend.

JoeMcPhee (8357) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 5, 2013
Bottle from LCBO. Pale golden pour with a thick white head - a slight yeasty haze. The aroma is lovely. Softly bready notes with a touch of light apricot, pear and lemon citrus. There is a very slight muskiness on the aroma initially with a touch of light vanillla as well. Moussey palate with a little bit of wheaty spice and a touch of light kiwi/gooseberry. Bright and lovely with a touch of light bitterness. Hops are perceptible - adding a little bit of light citrus and some herbal character as well. I really enjoy the balance of malt character with some minty/spicy yeast character. Lovely brew.

750mL thanks to noodleuser. Pours a cloudy golden. Medium white foam with good lacing. Nose is phenolic, heavy diaper plastic, fresh apricot. Still a tad overboard on the toilet cleaner nose. Taste is heavy carbonation up front, mild diaper, yellow apple, dusty yeast, some mint. Decent.

Bomber from somewhere. Pours a hazy pale orange color with a large foamy white head. Good head retention. Lots of spice in the aroma, some caramel, bread, dry citrus, herbal hops. The taste is spice, bready malts, caramel, citrus, herbal, spicy hops, stone fruits. Medium bodied, well balanced, mild lingering spice, low carbonation.
