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.

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.

33cl bottle from Olhops Bar in Valencia. Pours a hazy golden with frothy white head, quickly dissipates. Fair amount of particulates in beer. Very pleasant aroma of rosemary, honey, and ginger. Taste similar with notes of caramel, finishes sweet. Light body and medium fizzy carbonation, dry aftertaste. A unique ale.

dyetube (1374) - Hurst, Texas, USA - OCT 22, 2012
Bottle from choice beverages in McKinney. Pours a cloudy dull yellow with a thin white head. The aromas are rosemary, honey, light grass, lemon. The mouthfeel is dry with a light body and low carbonation. Very interesting brew indeed! Great sessionable beer. Rosemary is noticeable without overpowering. Light honey sweetness as well as faint grassy and fruity notes. Subtle and interesting.
