The second beer in the Cervezas Frescas Series, a series that specializes in highlighting refreshing fruit drinks popular in Latin countries. This very unique beer was brewed with copious amounts of rice and lactose sugar and finished off with vanilla beans and cinnamon. The result is a 7% ABV refreshing tasty beverage very reminiscent of the popular drink.

I absolutely loved this beer. Tastes just like horchata with a kick of alcohol. This needs to be on tap in every bar!

6/26/13. Originally had on tap at Aardwolf (a couple glasses) and have now had it on tap a couple of other places. Iíll admit it - I love this stuff. Some will say itís too sweet, and I could see that, but it was not a problem for me. Lightly hazed orange amber pour with a small khaki head. Rich, sweet aroma of lactose, rice pudding, tons of vanilla, perfect cinnamon, and more. Rich flavor, on the sweet side, lactose, rice pudding, vanilla, cinnamon, and more. I could drink gallons of this stuff. So. Good.

On nitro at World of Beer UCF. Cigar City Horchata Ale is another hit from the CCB folks. Light yellow pour with an ample creamy head. Aroma is sweet and spicy (cinnamon and maybe nutmeg). Taste is malty and lightly sweet with delicious notes of cinnamon and vanilla. Wonderful mouthfeel -- soft and creamy. Horchata is a tasty one-of-a-kind.

On nitro. Pours clear gold with a thick white "nitro-esque" head. Aroma is cinnamon & apple pie - getting a little gingerbread too. Imagine those aromas translated into flavor and blended with some biscuit-like malts. Nice. The malts and cinnamon linger in the mid palate and the finish kinda drops off, but the flavor is awesome. Like it.

Extremely creamy mouthfeel, excellent use of lactose in a non-stout style. Sweet with notes of cinnamon but certainly more heavily tilted towards a sort of vanilla syrup character. Good stuff, interesting, a bit too sweet to be sessionable. Way better than the Guanabana CF in my opinion.

Swingtop growler. The pour is a light yellow. The aroma is. Little different, warm cinnamon. The taste is exactly like horchata, very nice. Different, but really good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On draft at Cigar City. Pours a hazy gold color with a white head. Nose is some rice, some coconut, some sweetness, and some vanilla and light spice. Flavor is similar with a nice ricey and vanilla sweetness among the milky sweetness. Some mild spices, but nothing overpowering. It tastes like an alcoholic horchata. Medium in body, and especially impressive considering its alcohol content.
