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.

Bottled. Golden colour, not much head. Aroma is honey, mild spices, some malts as well as some slight floral notes. Flavour is fruits, wood, honey, some spices and mild gingery notes. Good effort, but not my thing.

Clear amber beer, tidy white head. Palate is lightly crisp. Mild minerals. Light creamy malt, medium sweet. Fairly big rosemary with a slight minty vibe. Finishes slightly dry. Pretty herby but pretty drinkable.
