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.

Form the bottle poured into snifter. Pours hazy orange with huge white head. Nose is Sour, grainy with herbal subtones. Taste is sweetish to herbal. Subtil rosemary notes in the back. Finish is mildly bitter herbal...

En botella. Predomina el aroma y sabor a romero. Muy ligera, casi incorprea. Final algo dulzn 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

La Socarrada es una cerveza que entrara dentro de la familia de Ales especiadas o herbales. Est elaborada con romero y miel de romero y no est filtrada ni pasteurizada. Esto hace que sea una cerveza turbia y con muchas partculas en suspensin. Sumadle a eso que est refermentada en botella, con lo que a dichas partculas en suspensin hay que aadirle los restos de levadura en botella. Tiene muy poco gas, lo que imagino hace tirarse para atrs a gente acostumbrada a cervezas ms carbonatadas. Su principal baza es el romero, que lo inunda todo. Adems del romero hay cierta presencia del caramelo del cereal y lgicamente miel y un final especiado, como picante.

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.

Un dlice qui allie fracheur, notes pices, herbaces et florales et une bouche frache, digeste, quilibre avec une finale qui tanche la soif. Une bire de fin de soire qui nettoie les papilles
