Look - yellow, slightly hazy. no head and virtually no lacing.
Smell - milk, cinnamon, and sweetness. really smells like horchata actually. whatever flavors/ingredients they used, they nailed this part.
Taste - light and slightly tart initial mouthfeel. fairly light beer taste with the same cinnamon and milk flavors come back in the end.
Feel - light bodied, medium-high carbonation, and appropriate ABV for this type of beer.
Overall - this isn't a great beer. this isn't even a good beer. but i like horchata, so i really like the taste. for the price and availability, i'd come back to this beer again and again.

Pours a yellow color, significant haze throughout the life of the beer. Heavy carbonation blows up a white 1" head but it settles into a 1/3" range when it finds the ability to start to retain. Aroma is horchata-esque, has the cinnamon and vanilla thing going for it.

Taste is the bland base plus adjunct. I'm sure whatever concentrate is used, no big deal to me. Whatever works taste wise. It isn't much in the way of a "beer" but it certainly does make me think of it as something to introduce my Mexican gf/friends to. I think the carbonation is way too high for the mouth feel, it doesn't ever settle into that creamy, milky feel like horchata has, it is too seltzery while trying to kick down contrarian flavors and mouth feels. More malt, less carbonation is how you improve this one.

Tastes like cinnamon toast crunch in beer form. No depth. But I get what the hook is.

The beer is a pale straw color with some haze but you can still see through it and the carbonation. The head was white as vanished quickly. The beer smells like a churro beer. Not overwhelming sweet on the nose but you get that cinnamon and rice mark. The beer tastes similar. It is not overly strong but has the flavor still there. The beer is crisp and nice feel of carbonation.

Cinnamon to nose and faint on palate. Hint of apple, sweetness of honey(?). Likely would not drink again. 7/9/17
