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.

Bottled August 7, 2012.

A: This is actually very interesting, most of Magic Hatís beers Iíve had have been cloudy, when they shouldnít, but this wheat ale is actually pretty damn clear, actually itís crystal clear. Thereís a thin white head with mediocre retention at best.

S: The aroma leans sweet here with some honey aromas and citrus thatís lightly tart.

T: Hocus Pocus is pretty standard here, dry wheat ale with mildly tart citrus. Nothing more to see here.

T: Light with medium lightly sharp carbonation.

O: This is what it is, nothing more nothing less, carry on.

12 oz. bottle from mix 12 pack. Pours a slightly hazy gold. Nose is lots of wheat and grain. As it gets real warm I noticed a lot of honey aromaís as well. The flavor is identical to the nose. I feel this is rated really harshly. Itís a bit better than some ratings imply. Yes, it is simple and light bodied, yet really refreshing with decent flavor. This bottle was still in code, so still fresh. I have NO problem finishing the other bottles.

Not much in the aroma. Tastes hoppy for a wheat beer which is nice but overall this beer is bland.

KajII (799) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - OCT 9, 2012
12 oz Bottle. The pour was a clear light golden yellow with a large (2-3 finger) white cottony head that lasted a good while, eventually reducing to a medium film with fair spotty lacing. The aroma was of a light straw malt and a moldy cobweb yeast with notes of citrus (lemon) and wheat. Taste was mild and lightly sweet with a hint of citrus from the get go, with a nice crisp wheat flavor and a slight citrus peel bitterness towards the finish. The flavor stuck around for a decent duration with a crisp citrus taste left lying on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with an almost fizzy carbonation. Overall a Wheat Ale with a light bitterness and a good crisp refreshing taste. Great beer for a hot summerís day...

Poured from 12oz bottle, pours a clear light yellowish golden with a bubbly white head and lacing, aroma is sweet with a hint of grain and lemon, the flavor is light and zesty, some lemon and grass in the finish, really boring, ugh, waste of $13 on this mix pack.

Pale gold with a good white head, smears of lace, and plenty of carbonation bubbles rising through the liquid. The taste starts with wheat and grass that is bypassed by a sour citrus and pine hop finish. Reasonable, light, but not satisfying enough to use on that "lazy fly ball" summer day in Magic Hatís description.

Aroma is lemons/ctirus, yeast and wheat. The flavor is light citrus, wheat malt a mix of mild sweetness and tartness in the finish.

Iím not a fan of wheat beers, but I donít mind this one. Itís probably the filtration that makes it enjoyable for me, and earned it such a low score.

12 ounce bottle pours a cloudy yelloe color, aromas of wheat, light zest, and light grass. Flavors are the same, light tartness and bland, ok wheat beer.
