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.

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.

Hazy golden colour. Poor head, no retention or lacing. Very floral, spicy aroma. Rosemary and ginger in both aroma and flavour. Pretty balanced. However, in general, what is interesting and intriguing in aroma doesn’t work that well in taste. Plenty of vegetable, spice notes. Moderate bitterness. Difficult to rate, this style isn’t really my cup of tea.

roldano (56) - - MAR 29, 2015
Espuma blanca que permanece como una fina capa a lo largo de la cata, color naranja oscuro, bastante turbia a la vista, aroma a romero en nariz, sabor especiado debido al romero que permanece en el retrogusto.

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.

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.
