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.
