COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Horchata is a traditional, sweet, milky drink originating in Spain and Latin America that has become quite popular in Southern California, particularly with Mexican cuisine. Our take on the traditionally non-alcoholic drink is a blonde ale brewed with a heavy dosing of rice, cinnamon and fresh vanilla beans along with lactose for a litle extra creamy character. If you didn’t know better, you’d think it was carbonated horchata.

750ml bottle pours a dark gold with some creamy, white head. Nose has a ton of vanilla, almond milk, cinnamon icing, doughy. Flavor is the same, chai, clove, cinnamon cake icing, cream cheese icing, carrot cake. Creamy, spicy finish. A little too sweet but very interesting.

Pour from a bottle. Really nice beer actually. I wasn’t sure what the style was but the vanilla and sweetness was a welcomed change from the higher ABV beers we had been opening.

Bottle courtesy of GatorGuy92. Cheers, Matt! Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is huge honey and vanilla with some cinnamon and spice. Flavor is huge vanilla with some honey, cinnamon, and lactose. Very enjoyable, uber-sweet beer. I mean really sweet and vanilla forward. Medium in body and I would drink this every day; on par with the CCB Horchata, but more vanilla.

Bottle thanks to a trade! Pours a hazy deep gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma is very sweet with cookie, lactose, rice and caramel. Flavor is similarly sweet with sweet rice, caramel and cookie with a bit of spice.

Pailhead (4635) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - FEB 23, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2014 Courtesy of rayl101 Bottle: The aroma consists of vanilla, fruit, and and cream. It pours a hazy dull orange with a small off-white head. The flavor is straight up white cake with vanilla frosting and a touch of cinnamon. There’s a hint of fruit. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, another Bruery dessert beer. It’s pretty tasty, but the vanilla sweetness wears on me.

Pretty damn good gimmick beer. Probably not a good one to drink a bomber of all by yourself though. Cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla. Does taste like Horchata without being too sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
