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 didnít know better, youíd think it was carbonated horchata.

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. Thereís a hint of fruit. Itís medium bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, another Bruery dessert beer. Itís 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

Bottle at the Night of Garbage, big thanks to Kenny the Bruery pimp, 20/12/13 up a shit load of stairs ! Hazed orange amber with a good sized off white head. Nose is sweet caramel, vanilla ice cream, light spice, syrupy, Danish pastries. Taste comprises vanilla, caramel, Danish pastries and doughnuts, sweet all round. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, smooth. Ok stuff but a little overly sweet for my liking.

jstraw (1929) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 24, 2013
Caramel with frothy, beige head, some lacing / Medicinal nose of caramel, rice, cinnamon, resin / Light to medium body, very sweet, lightly cloying, balanced but could use more hopping to my taste, / Flavors of rice pudding, cinnamon, clove, caramel, vanilla, resin / For me, itís a beer to try once, but would need to be toned down with a lot more hopping to be had more often.

The (not so) shit beer tasting at Leightons stratospheric flat. Hazy amber beer with a good pale cream coloured head. Vanilla Ice Cream! Cinnanon Danish! Spot of dried fruits. A sweet and unusual beer which presents the marriage of the aforementioned sweets fairly well.

Scopey (7058) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2013
Bottle thanks to Kenny at the Night of Garbage. It pours cloudy amber with a medium yellow-white head. The nose is sweet rice pudding, vanilla, coconut, passion fruit, coconut cake, milk and cinnamon. The taste is vanilla ice-cream, clove rock, candy, sweet milk, lactose, passion fruit, cinnamon and nutmeg. Medium body, fine carbonation and oily mouth-feel. Works rather well, balance is very good. Pretty tasty stuff.

Leighton (11322) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2013
Bottle shared at the Night of Garbage - many thanks to Kenno. Pours hazy gold with a tight, creamy off-white head. Inviting aroma, lots of cinnamon cake, vanilla frosting. Big sweet flavor, well spiced, plenty of cinnamon buns, hot cross buns. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Lots of pastries to finish, more vanilla frosting, creme, slight cinnamon spice. Good stuff.
