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.

Beerenberger (1368) - Fischer, Texas, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Aroma is mildly herbal; rosemary, ginger. Floral fragrances are also present. A cloudy orangish amber pour with frothy, mostly diminishing, off-white head and clumpy lacing. The taste, like the nose is herbal with peppery ROSEMARY being the predominate flavor! Medium body with soft carbonation. Overall, refreshing, like "adult" herbal tea Not something I would drink all the time, but I would definately drink it again.

deyholla (6486) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - APR 4, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear deep amber gold with a white head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has a real nice rosemary note with sweet grains and bit of dry honey. Flavor is similar with honey and rosemary working together and a sweet grain backbone.

ChemaMartinez (14) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 15, 2014
Un original toque de romero. Se supone que también tiene miel de romero, pero no la hace nada dulce. Tomar muy fria.

allmyvinyl (2795) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 25, 2014
750ml bottle at Stu’s. Gusher! Once it settled down, poured hazy gild with a thick white head. Aromas are spicy, bready, honey and just picking up the rosemary. Taste brings more spice and fruit. Really interesting beer.

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.

ttoadee (609) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 26, 2013
Medium gold pour, decent head. Nose is light rosemary, herbs, and malt. Sweet on the tongue. Middle is the interesting part; woody, honey coated, rosemary flowers. Finish is lightly bitter and long. Not for everyday, but this beer could grow on you.
