COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our take on the classic summer wheat beer...itís a light, crisp ale for mowing lawns, hitting lazy fly balls and communing with nature. Glowing like brilliant rays of golden sun, its malty sweetness finishes tart and crisp. Hocus Pocus is best appreciated with a wedge of orange. Offered as a sacrifice to cloudless days.

Light. Crisp. Pretty dull. This is a beer for a hot day outside where you need more hydration than flavor.

This is one of those American wheat ales which was an old brewpub standby which they would sell to meek and dainty womenfolk who did not like strong beer. I am not sure that is the most delicate way to put that but, hey, donít shoot the messenger. This is a perfectly clear golden beer w/ a long-lasting head of fine bubbles. Itís nose is of grain husk and bread yeast along w/ some grassy hops. This comes off as a little bit on the sweetside but that is mostly because there is not much bitterness. It smells pretty nice but it tastes a little flabby w/o much substance. A crisp bite of carbonation keeps it lively enough to be interesting though. Finish is just a lingering bit of sweetness w/ some nutty malts on the tongue. There is nothing really wrong w/ this beer and I enjoy the style despite my initial comment but this is frankly just forgettable.

12 oz. bottle. Gold color with a very brief white head. Not much of a noticeable aroma. Medium body, good carbonation. Very little wheat flavor. Clean finish. Drinkable, but not the best.

This pours a clear, yellow straw color with a thin, beige head. The aroma is of wheat and lemon zest. The taste is a watered down lemon, wheat beer. The after taste is slightly tart and a little off-putting. The texture is thin with not much happening. Not terrible but this could be better!

Lighter yellow, only slightly cloudy. Medium, shrinking fluffy head that easily settled in 1 pour; some lasting. Aroma is wheat, quite a bit of lemon. Flavor is about the same. Light body, slight tart I suppose. Not alot going on here really.

Not my favorite wheat beer, the aroma is both earthy and citrusy, with a cloudy gold color and mild spice after taste.

Somewhat cloudy gold with a medium white to tan head. Somewhat of a musty, wet earth aroma. Taste is a bit fleeting. There is a bit of bitter and a bit of sweet. The body is light and texture is thin with a slight sweet finish. Overall this is a light beer to be had on a hot day, but itís nothing to go out of your way for. Think of it as eye-candy, or a conversation starter at a party where everyone is drinking natty, BL, and PBR. However, you might as well be drinking PBR.

Ughsmash (7154) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 3, 2013
Bottled. Poured cloudy lighter golden with a tall, creamy, sticky white head. The aroma picked up bright earthy wheat and orange zest, with faint undertones of band-aid.. smelled like it was going to be drinkable. The flavor found tart wheat, orange zest, and white spices throughout.. honey and generic pale malts supported.. tangy finish with orange rind and residual grainy sugars. Light-bodied with fairly high carbonation on the palate.. tangy and engaging in spots, but too many grainy sugars in others.. overall very drinkable, but not necessarily good.
