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.

(spiced golden ale) ASPETTO SCHIUMA: bianca, buona presenza, buona compattezza, media persistenza COLORE: oro carico con riflessi olivastri, velata AROMA VOTO (1-10) basicamente malto, con leggere note caramello, lieviti e note che riportano al profumo del rosmarino anche se l’effetto complessivo non è molto fine SAPORE VOTO (1-10) base di malto, con qualche sensazione dolce e di tostato, sulla quale si ripropone la sensazione di rosmarino, abbastanza avvetibile , ma che si mescola con alcuni sapori non ben definibili e non propio gradevoli. Sul finale compare un amaro anonimo, privo di particolari sfumature. TEXTURE VOTO (1-10) corpo medio, una certa morbidezza in bocca e carbonatazione regolare COMMENTO FINALE VOTO (1-20) birra piuttosto anonima, a parte un leggero sentore sia al naso che in bocca di rosmarino che però non conduce ai balsamici profumi della pianta fresca, rimanendo in sordina e affiancato da qualche stonatura che limita il potenziale del prodotto. Per il resto risulta bevibile, la texture convince (forse merito del miele aggiunto). sulla carta una birra originale ed intrigante, nella pratica una parziale delusione.

culchiem (2478) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUL 19, 2011
Bottle. Murky brown with a medium offwhite head. Aroma is herbal honey, a bit peculiar. Flavour has lots of honey in it, a bit like a spoon of honey was stirred in. Finish is bitter offset with a honey palate. Strange but not bad.

KnutAlbert (6067) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 18, 2011
Bottled. Strange aroma. Over ripe fruit and honey, some sourness. The flavour is quite similar - sourness and honey combined. A bit medical. Ginger?

oh6gdx (20274) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 18, 2011
Bottled. Golden colour, not much head. Aroma is honey, mild spices, some malts as well as some slight floral notes. Flavour is fruits, wood, honey, some spices and mild gingery notes. Good effort, but not my thing.
