this is just cinnamon beer. Some faded stale malts in there, disjointed. Not really my liking.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Nose is lightly sugary with a light orange fruitiness. Some vanilla. Hazy deep orange with a small head that dissipates quickly. Taste is similar, light vanilla aids in a smoothness, light fruitiness, a very subtle cinnamon. Somewhat thin even though it’s 7%. Not getting much lactose. Having never had horchata, I can’t compare but the beer Is Nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Seems flat upon the first pour, until a late-arriving head gives it some life. What bubbles are present above the soft-hazed, grapefruit pulp-colored liquid only get about a quarter-inch high and recede within seconds. Smells like a candle from Bath and Body Works. Cinnamon, tangy dulce le leche, banana, rice pudding, cooked butter. Vanilla is huge but a bit artificial, like freeze-dried vanilla ice cream. Very sweet flavor. Touch of banana, splash of fruity wheat. Vanilla, tapioca pudding, soft cinnamon. Syrupy but lighter body -- medium-light. Gentle fizz, tiny massaging bubbles. No alcohol whatsoever. Tasty stuff, but finishing the bottle oneself would be a challenge. It’s very sweet.

Bottle pours clear dark amber with frothy white head. Odd aroma, sweet with c=rice and what seemed like corn. Flavor sweet with rice , vanilla, cinnamon. Sweet and syrupy finish . Palate a tad sticky. just OK, glad I didn’t buy more.

Bottle... Pours hazy and deeply golden with a small, white head that’s gone faster than you can say “quick.” This smells just like cream soda. ’nuff said there. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and jazzy carbonation. Tastes like cream soda too - with a hint of balancing, nondeScript bitterness. Lengthy, sticky-sweet finish. I like cream soda. I like this too. Surprisingly, this isn’t cloying. Bottle courtesy of biggsbowler!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle, thanks to alexsdad06 for sharing. Hazy orange color, with fine particles floating in the body. Thin off-white head, loose lace. Medium plus body. Smooth, kind of crisp, soft lighter carbonation. Light dry finish. Awesome vanilla, cocoa, bready malt. Mild cinnamon, but it’s in-check. Moderate sweet taste, lightly spicy. Tasty stuff. Good to sip. More dry finish, not too sweet. Awesome, cool stuff. Great mexican-style blond ale.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured hazy dark golden color with a moderate frothy white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate sweet, vanilla and spice aroma. Medium to abundant body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium spice sweet flavor with a smooth sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Solid refreshing brew.

750 ml bottle shared with the group. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have a sweet malty character, smooth, some vanilla, cinnamon spices, creamy, almost soda like, interesting brew, I am apparently liking this better than most.
