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.

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.

Great beer. Paired very well with our wild caught Salmon. The Rosemary really comes out as it warms. Recommend drinking at 50-60 degrees. Great food pairing beer! Would be hard to drink by itself without food though. Had a nice 2 finger head in my Stone snifter. Aroma was ok but the flavor was just what was expected. Overall happy with this beer and would recommend as a food pairing beer only. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Botella. Romaní ho impregna tot, l’aroma a bosc mediterrà ho impregna tot però a la boca i al paladar fa que amagi defectes com la poca amargor i l’ensucrament. Tot i així bona triple i refrescant. El que seria aquesta birra amb un dryhopping de llúpol americà..

At first taste, it hit me with a beer full of condiments, and it didn't disappoint! It has traces of rosemary, spices and black pepper. The hint of honey balances the initial strong flavor. This is one of the most unique beers I have tasted. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Buena cerveza levantina, algo diferente, una rubia con una amplia gama de olores a romero y miel, algo no muy habitual por estos lares. En boca, todos esos sabores se notan también, consiguiendo una sensación muy muy agradable. Repetí en la taberna de los conspiradores sin dudarlo y cuando pueda volveré a tomarme otra.

Pour is a cloudy almost pink with a large white head. Lots of floaties as well. Aroma is very herbal and sweet with notes of the honey. Flavor is holy rosemary! Lots of rosemary with a definite honey sweetness lingering in the back round. There is lots of herbal flavorings going on here and if that’s not your thing I could see that bringing down the score but for me put rosemary on everything, I love it.

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.
