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.

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.

En fin sødme af honning og mere mørke noter fra malten. Der er ikke meget humle i den.

Ysok02 (995) - MOns, BELGIUM - SEP 10, 2016
Un délice qui allie fraîcheur, notes épicées, herbacées et florales et une bouche fraîche, digeste, équilibrée avec une finale qui étanche la soif. Une bière de fin de soirée qui nettoie les papilles

33cl bottle. Hazy dark golden with a nice white head. Malty, honey and herbal aroma. Average carbonation and medium to light body. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with honey and spicy notes. Overall, I was expecting more of it.

mice (801) - FINLAND - AUG 10, 2016
Samea kuparinen olut niukahkolla, mutta tiivillä, aavistuksen pitsiä jättävällä vaahdolla. Tuoksu hedelmäinen. Maku hunajainen, hieman hedelmäinen ja laimean tunkkainen. Keskitäyteläinen suutuntuma. Espanjalaiseksi tekeleeksi ihan ok, mutta eihän tämä kovin erikoinen ole. Hieman tästä jää sellainen fiilis, että maistelee neljä tuntia ravintolan pöydässä maannutta olutta.

Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. Cloudy yellow-orange with a herbal rosemary and ginger flavour followed by a smooth herbal finish. Good, but difficult to drink a lot of.
