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.

En botella. Predomina el aroma y sabor a romero. Muy ligera, casi incorpórea. Final algo dulzón y nada persistente. No es para repetir

130117. Bottle from Malt Traders. One of the better beers that I have had from Spain and a nice unexpected find. Bright golden amber colour with a deep white head and a sweetness in the flavour that contrasts to the slight bitterness that is also there. Full bodied with the herbiness of the rosemary coming through quite distinctly.

Completely fine. Bit too musty honey rather than sweet honey for me. Need more words to hit word minimum

VueltaBirrista (144) - Murcia, SPAIN - DEC 23, 2016
La Socarrada es una cerveza que entraría dentro de la familia de Ales especiadas o herbales. Está elaborada con romero y miel de romero y no está filtrada ni pasteurizada. Esto hace que sea una cerveza turbia y con muchas partículas en suspensión. Sumadle a eso que está refermentada en botella, con lo que a dichas partículas en suspensión hay que añadirle los restos de levadura en botella. Tiene muy poco gas, lo que imagino hace tirarse para atrás a gente acostumbrada a cervezas más carbonatadas. Su principal baza es el romero, que lo inunda todo. Además del romero hay cierta presencia del caramelo del cereal y lógicamente miel y un final especiado, como picante.

CraftyHare (118) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - NOV 3, 2016
330ml bottle pours medium amber with fine off-white head. Aromas of rosemary, dried fruit and olives. Low carbonation and 6% alcohol. Herbal flavours of rosemary and ginger with a slight lemony sourness. Pleasant herbal aftertaste with slight bitterness. A little odd, but refreshing.

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

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.
