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.

I think the aroma on this one just ruins it from the get go. Despite smelling like really nice marinara sauce, the canned tomato impression never really goes away or develops into something worth the challenge.

Cloudy dark yellow / orange colour with a white head that stays thinly on top for a long time.could place the aroma but after reading the ingredients i think it was the rosemary. Enjoyable beer that is slightly above the average with the hint of rosemary in the taste. Extremely refreshing body.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - AUG 28, 2012
Bottle. Pours a murky gold with white head. Aroma is very pleasant, notes of rosemary, tropical fruit and subtle malt. Flavor is very herbal, similar to aroma with a light sweetness, almost medicinal but interesting. Mouthfeel is soft with medium carbonation. Overall, interesting brew, not sure if I like it or hate it, non the less, I will finish it and may have another down the road.
