On tap at Vine & Barley Palm City. Served in a tumbler.

Appearance - Clear golden body, slight haze. No head. Thin collar.

Smell - Lots of vanilla. Some pale malts. Don't get much lactose out of it.

Taste - Sweet. Not refreshing at all, really. Vanilla most prominent and now I get the lactose. Cinnamon spice in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Funny medicinal aftertaste. I can't put my finger on it, but I keep going back to figure it out. Like a car accident you can't turn away from.

Overall - I'm not getting it. I'm not familiar with a horchata, but this doesn't make me want to know more. Saving grace is that it isn't undrinkably bad, just bad.

On tap. I thought this beer was a great take on horchata. It was a sweet beer but I didn't think it was overly sweet. I was also expecting a sweetness as horchata is usually sweet. I think this particular beer needs the sweetness, just my opinion. The nose was very similar to the taste although I think the "horchata flavor" came through more in the taste than the nose. Somehow the beer has a super creamy flavor while remaining mostly clear and a pale yellowish color. Taste is delicious, no hint of any alcohol. Very similar to horchata with a nice hint of a light refreshing beer taste in the background. Quite easy drinking although this is not a beer I would want to drink every day and definitely not a session beer.

Overall I liked it and would buy it again. Something different that I would recommend to anyone, even non beer lovers as this beer is like nothing I have ever tasted before.... except horchata ;)
