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.

Fancy green 750. Tons of rosemary inthe flavor which brings to mind other spices and works.

maledictum (555) - Pyongyang, NORTH KOREA - OCT 10, 2011
Esta cerveza es todo romero, profundo aroma a romero, intenso sabor a romero, las notas de malta aparecen en un segundo plano al igual que el lúpulo. De carbonatación media y cuerpo medio.

I think the aroma on this one just ruins it from the get go. Despite smelling like really nice marinara sauce, the canned tomato impression never really goes away or develops into something worth the challenge.

Rosemary is noticeable without overpowering. Light honey sweetness as well as faint grassy and fruity notes. Subtle and interesting.

FatPhil (8548) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 1, 2012
330ml bottle (Alko Arkadia, Helsinki)
Nice herbal aroma, a little savoury and a bit leathery, but gently sweet too - nice. Smooth palate, gentle carbonation. Hayey palate, but smooth and sweet primarily. Kinda fake fruitiness in the finish. Very clear rosemary, but a little sweet. Very floral late finish. Gentle hops pop their head up occasionally too, the late finish has quite a tingly bitter finish. A curious beer that pulls in several different directions, and isn’t well integrated. Maybe it could do with a bit more ageing.

zimbo (482) - SCOTLAND - JAN 7, 2013
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.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 2, 2013
UPDATED: APR 20, 2013 Bottled. An unclear dark golden beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of honey, malt, and roswmary. The flavor is sweet with notes of spices, malt, honey, rosemary, and flavors, leading to a dry finish.
