Smells just like horchata
This beer is creamy, smooth and tastes just like horchata. Has little to no head at the top and leaves no lacing on the glass. Great with mexican food. If you have a chance to grab one of these you should try it. One of my favorite beers

Brilliant. Horchata + carbonation + 7% alcohol. This may be my new favorite beer - it needs to be in a bottle more often. This beer is like a cream soda, an horchata, and a "butter beer" from Potter-verse all in one. Do yourself a favor and try it!

I adore this beer. The smell and taste are delicious, and they absolutely nailed it. One sip and I feel like I'm at a taqueria on a hot summer day, drinking Horchata on ice out of a plastic cup with a faint dusting of cinnamon on top. I can't get enough of this.

Thought the description of this one was going to taste weird but it was delicious. Tastes just like horcata to me!

They really did nail it. Probably the best non-dark spiced beer I've ever had. Well integrated and nothing artificial about the flavors. The mouth feel is velvety, lending itself well to the vanilla. Makes me want to try White Chocolate.
