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.

bilcho1 (181) - Ruse, BULGARIA - JAN 15, 2018
330ml bottle from the shop, drunk at home. Pours thickly cloudy with a short-lived frothy head, lacing but no bead. Aroma of rosemary with hints of green apple. Lively at first in the mouth but no development; it soon feels soapy and sour and never really fills the mouth with either texture or flavour. Quite sweet with gentle bitterness mixed in with the sourness. Overall, unusual and good in parts, but sadly lacking in others.

imdownthepub (15526) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2017
Bottled, 330ml from R. Campbell & Sons, Leyburn, N.Yorks. Amber with short lived white head. The honey is pretty dominant in this, both on the nose and in the flavour, really quite sweet and sticky. It is herby with rosemary with also a note of spruce. Not a great beer but it's okay.

El color es ámbar y el aroma es claramente herbáceo y con notas de malta caramelo. Se nota la presencia del romero en boca y el amargor resulta ligero, dándole el equilibrio necesario. Cuerpo medio.

Neutral beer, what a pity my god. Three times I tasted it. And yet another one bites the dust.

ManVsBeer (11205) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2017
Bottle @ Bar Bodega, Liverpool. Cloudy amber with a carbonation and a hoppy-fruity-floral nose. Rosemary is dominant in its taste and it lingers.

Thanks Fred for this bottle that you take from Valencia. We share this beer at your home, Petit-Lancy. In my point of view, it is a surprisingly good beer, original and perfectly refreshing for the summer. The body is yellow/orange and troubled, thin and white foam, normal carbonation, a bit sparkling. The taste is malty, bready, honey and rosmarin, some hop and the taste is well balanced, not heavy and a perfect pint to eat one typical and authentic paella of the region.

Vajtouna (20) - Minsk, BELARUS - SEP 20, 2017
Has a wonderful sweet aroma, full of honey. Spice taste full of rosmarin. Light, good for summer.

Bijl (882) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 16, 2017
Goudgeel/licht Amber, volle witte schuimkraag, troebel, veel koolzuur. Aroma: Gember, rozemarijn, floraal/bloemig. Iets mout en hop....meer niet. Smaak: Pilsmout, granig en dan dat met gember en bloemige rozemarijn. Licht en iets waterig , lichte body en niet bitter. Betitel het maar als anders. Ik ben er niet wild van.

Cerveza bien hecha, con buena espuma, el problema es que el sabor a romero lo tapa todo.

jaghana (6366) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - SEP 10, 2017
Bottle shared @Freiburg testing. A copper beer, nose is on herbs, aroma is still on herbs, blond beer basis, spicy, did not get the honey, not much to say.
