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.

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.

The rosemary here is just more pleasant on the nose than the palate. Smells like a rosemary forest. But upon drinking, one soon discovers the rosemary is truly alone. No interest from the yeast, no backing from malt, and no balance from hops. Really an interesting beer, and I am not sorry to have tried it, but it just doesn’t have the complexity that would have made it great.

Pretty gold with a little lacing. Nose started out as rosemary with some greeneness and honey then got a bit stinky. Drinks almost like an IPA with the honey rounding out the mouthfeel then black pepper spiceyness and some rosemary then a honey sweetness and more black pepper. Quite interesting and much better than what it’s rated.

Jetulio (100) - Tarragona.SPAIN, SPAIN - DEC 13, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2014 330 ml. bottle poured into a Pint glass Appearance....... Amber hazy beer with head colour white of 1.5 finger aprox Aroma............... rosemary, honey and yeast . malty aroma with predominance of honey touch Taste........ Rosemary and malt notes overwhelming hop presence, touch of bitterness is missed. Mouthfeel........... medium/full body and soft carbonation Overall............ a very recomendable winter ale, in my opinion with hops touch in the end could be amazing, but it is a nice ale.

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.
