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.

Had this beer on tap at Jester King 2nd Anniversary Party. Really surprised. Rosemary and honey were very prominent and blended wonderfully with the base. Refreshing and different.

Sourish. Nice light twist of ground ginger, elder flower and maybe honey. Structurally sound. Light but apealing. Love Rosemary but I don’t get much evidence of it here as it lacks that appealing green rosemary intensity. Definitely ginger though without that gingery heat. Interesting. A nice Spanish surprise.

kidmartinek (3742) - austin, Texas, USA - JAN 4, 2013
Light orange color. Hazy. Thin white ring head. Lots of vegetable and dirt in the aroma. The flavor is just weird and mainly old veggie peel followed by rosemary. I like rosemary but not in my beer. :he.palate is a little rough and the finish gluey.

Would drink it again. Very light and full flavored. The nose is weak and doesn't really hint at what you are about to taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 19, 2012
Draught. Nose is slightly sweet with an earthy rosemary note. Cloudy bright orange with no head. Rosemary is pretty forward but balanced by the sweet floral honey tones and spicy yeast character. Soft carbonation and thickness leave a very full impression on the palate.

Peppery aroma with a definite rosemary notes. Clear honey color in the glass. Fairly soft on the palate some honey notes and definite rosemary flavor notes. Overall, i’m quite impressed! This makes me want to experiment with rosemary in my homebrews...
