I had this beer at Societe on a recent trip to San Diego. The beer arrives with a dark copper color and generous head. Aromas of yeast and bread dominate the nose. The flavor is a little white peppery with very little, if any, phenolic clovey flavors (a good thing IMO).

On Tap

Churchill's Pub & Grille
San Marcos, CA

Class, dark amber in color. Small near-khaki-colored head. Dots of stick left down the glass.

Grain and floral hop notes in the aroma, with a bit of light pine or resin. A hint of yeast.

Light floral and citrus notes along with biscuit and a faint Belgian yeast character. Drinkable, but somewhat boring.

Medium in body with moderate to high carbonation. Appropriate.

Very drinkable, but not one of Societe's more exciting beers.

Raul keeps on pumping away, but he may just be pumping too hard. Close the book. The book is closed... Like Ryan Lochte, obviously something good is going on, but in the end, there is a chromosome missing.

Decent, but lacking. Simply and straight up: decent, but lacking.
