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.

dnstone (2556) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Pours a hazey honey orange-golden in color with light white head. Quite herbal sweet aroma, dominated by rosemary. Light and moderately sweet transitioning to to an earthy herbal rosemary finish. A great light, different beer that would go well with almost anything.

mice (781) - 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.

zacgillbanks (4376) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2016
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.

Ok. Huele a romero, sabe a romero. No soy ultra del Reinheitsgebot pero es realmente necesario este tipo de mejunjes? Sin más...

On tap at Olhops, Valencia. Pours hazy orange, white head. Caramel malts, herbal notes, quite spicy, rosemary. Light to medium bodied. Can’t say I’m a fan of this herbal/spices combination.

Dull brown colour with almost no head. Definitely some light rosemary in the aroma. In the flavour there are hints of honey sweetness too. Not bad and easy to see why it can easily be paired with food.
