On tap at Notorious Burgers along with a damn fine burger, my first taste of a brewery I’d targeted during my work-time out west. 10 or 12 oz. pour, or something.

Beer arrives in a glass, pale, sunless, like cleavage yearning for the sun. Nose isn’t much to write home about, a few hop leavings & pale malts.

The Publican leaves me as lukewarm as an English cask. Most noteworthy is the mouthfeel, thick & creamy for a pale ale, much different than the regular light fare. Hard bitterness is hardly held at bay by a twinge of orange pulp, light sweetness from the malt, that’s it. One glass’ll do me, thanks.

Really not much going on here. Love the thickness, but other than that, nothing to make me ask for another glass. I’ll expect more out of my next Societe brew. Pretty good.
