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 courtesy of Madbeerbaron. Unfiltered deep murky orange-brown. Sweet brown sugar milky vanilla. Very easy on the palate. Captures a completely unique flavor. World Class.

Bottle @ Matt’s house from our Reserve Society membership. Pours a cloudy yellow orange appearance with a thin off white head. Vanilla, nutmeg, cinnamon, apple, caramel aroma. Vanilla, tea, herbal, cinnamon, pear, apple flavor. Kind of bizarre but I don’t hate it.

Bottle at Matt’s with friends. Pour is hazy orange with a big white head great lacing. Big butter bomb - vanilla, goopy, lactose, caramel corn, and doughy aroma. Taste is marshmallows, green peppers, doughy, sweet vanilla frosting, husky, straw, and spruce tips. Light body with high carbonation. Really horrid shit.

Very easy drinking 7% beer. It's pleasantly milky with strong notes of cinnamon and vanilla. It's a bit sweet, but I think that's a good thing. I will definitely buy this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with no head. The aroma is vanilla and cinnamon. Medium mouthfeel with very sweet spice and flavors of vanilla and cinnamon. Complex, good.
