Way better than I expected and actually very good. Head disappears pretty quick. Medium carbonation. Smell was the only weak point. Not a bad smell, but it didn't really paint the picture. But the taste more than made up for it. Very very good flavor and very distinct cinnamon. Quite a good brew all in all.

Wow, it actually tastes like horchata. I worried it might be like Pinnacle cookie dough, where it tastes like rotting Chips Ahoy in cheap vodka; nah, the flavor really is there. I don't know about a six pack, but, this beer was made for build-six's. Unlike more physical flavors, this only gets a slight demerit for its texture versus what your brain desires.

L: Straw with a half finger head that doesn't last
S: Not very fragrant but there are hints of sweetened white rice and cinnamon
T: This is where it excels. Very crisp with obvious hints of rice milk and cinnamon. Not overly sweet or artificial at all.
F: Light with med-hi carbonation. Crisp
O: Better than I expected. They hit home with the horchata flavor without going overboard on sweetness. Definitely a desert beer but one well worth trying.

This is very unique......I have had fruit beers, which are not really my preference, but this is pretty good. It is as it is labeled... major hints of cinnamon. I would recommend drinking this with a salty snack or right after dinner.

Different, but worth a shot. Cloudy gold color and a light head which sticks slightly to the glass. Has a scent which will draw you close and a unique flavor which will cause you stop, think and take another drink. Good stuff!

A fairly clear honey with a finger + of white creamy head that sticks to the glass. Loads of carb rising. Smells like grain, a little grassy, cinnamon, and bread dough. Taste is bready, sweet, and a good amount of cinnamon. The feel is medium body, a little sticky, drier on finish, below average carbonation in the feel. The cinnamon bread is there, maybe just a little too sweet, just slightly, and needs a little more balance from the hops in the flavor. Great lacing down the glass.
