COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
La Socarrada is a "gastro-ale," or food-pairing golden ale made with only, water, malts (pils/amber), hops, yeast, rosemary, and rosemary honey. La Socarrada pours a beautiful golden-amber color with a light, white, non-persistant head. The nose is wonderfully appetizing, filled with rosemary, rosemary-honey, and a light bread-like quality. The taste is full of rosemary, rosemary honey, and fruity characteristics along the lines of pear, apple, and fig. There is also a distinct gingery bite as well as a light note of black pepper. The body is both crisp and pleasantly dry. It is recommended to be served around 45° in a white wine glass or snifter.

Compra: Club del Gourmet del Corte Ingles de San Juan de Aznalfarache Ingesta: Jugando a Kings Bounty Dark Side Opinion: Aunque se agradece el esfuerzo por ser originales, no termina de agradarme del todo el sabor a romero en la cerveza

The rosemary and honey notes are clearly appreciable in the aroma but are more subtle in the palate. Tan head and cloudy amber appearance. Not very fizzy, medium body and long aftertaste.

Teran (133) - Belgrade, SERBIA - APR 11, 2015
Experimental artisanal beer, not so much of success in this experiment that I can notice. Even the small parts of some herbs is visible. Herbs usually don’t improve beer, this one included. Cloudy gray-green orange colour is not promising at all. Small top also. Spicy cardamom aroma and rosemary, thyme and even chilli. A taste of some arabic tea is not good choice for the beer. Bad attempt to be extravagant. But, it is possible to drink it, and because of the ambition I would rate it a little bit more than it deserves.

11.2oz bottle. Pours a thick white head and will foam over if you manhandle the bottle. Bottle conditioned so yeast is present if you overturn the bottle. Strong aroma of rosemary and a touch of herbaceous; almost like holy water. Light mouthfeel with forward hoppiness. Bright carbonation and a quick finish on the palate. Would pair excellently with a soft cheese.

Espuma blanca que permanece como una fina capa a lo largo de la cata, color naranja oscuro, bastante turbia a la vista, aroma a romero en nariz, sabor especiado debido al romero que permanece en el retrogusto.

It has an attractive dark orange color. Floral aroma with rosemary, although it smelled more like potpourri than beer. No foam. The taste was not bad (honey and rosemary), but had little complexity, development, and body.

My first Beer from Spain. Oh my. This is not good. Looks ok but downhill from there. Smells like Fresca. Tastes worse. The bottle blew up when opened. Watery and thin. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

33cl bottle shared by Arve_Christian - thanks a lot! Gusher! After the fountain settled it poured hazy amber with an off-white head. Spicy aroma with cardamom, some yeasty anf fruity notes and hints of ginger and pepper. Medium sweet with spicy flavours a a fairly mild bitterness. Decent stuff, quite Christmassy and fairly tasty.
