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.

Gold color with a small white head. Toasty wheat, and a light caramel malt aroma. Wheaty, light citrus taste. Rather weak mouthfeel.

Bottle from the Summer variety pack. Blond bodied with a small white head. Lemon zest, soft wheat and yeast make up the aroma. taste is lemony and tart with some yeast and hop bitterness and strong wheat notes. Body is light-medium and well carbonated. Dry in spots as well. Ends with more lemon, strong grains (wheat), and yeast with softer hops. Not too horrible, considering I hate American Wheats.

Not much here, a generous honey flavor which mixes in well, but still does not make up for the fact that nothing else is there.

Man, this beer smells, and even, initially, tastes like budweiser. Bland to the extreme, but leaves a decent, light finish. I guess, if I werenít into good beer, this would be great. Magic Hat really disappoints me with this one.

12 oz bottle. Wow, this beer really isnít good. Poured a light straw with a tiny head that disappeared so quickly I was lucky to see it at all. Iíve seen a better looking glassful of budweiser. Aroma is barely present, a little fruity. On the palate this was really thin a little fizzy, with really no discernable flavors. It was as if they took a decent wheat beer and filtered out all the flavor when they took out the yeast. I personally like something a little more substantial with wheat beers. Not recommended.

This wheat beer pours a medium yellow gold color from a 12oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head, quickly dissipating, with good lacing. Aroma is sweet and bready and a touch floral. A light to medium bodied American Wheat. Malts are fruity, citrusy and a touch malty. Hops are slightly grapefruity. Light and refreshing. Crisp and clean. This is a nice summer beer. Good balance with lively carbonation. Great beer for a warm summer evening, there is some malt, hop and other flavor to this beer. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is crisp and clean. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Bottle. Aroma bread, lemon, honey, summery yeast. Bright yellow pour with a good deal of carbonation and a creamy, rich, noisy white head. Taste is malt, grainy with a good bit of honey, quaffable lightish body upset by the slight huskish grainy feel. Light but lasting bitterness adds a nice tone. Dry and blasť Ė thus perfect for summer?

Slightly hazy golden colour with orange highlights and a dense white head. Very nice hoppy aroma with sweet scents and even a bit of malt...nothing wrong with the aroma. Light to medium-bodied; Sweet flavour with some grassy hop characteristics and a light malt finish. Mild aftertaste, only a bit of the sweetness shows through and leaves the mouthful fairly dry. Overall, one of my favourite Magic Hat beers, I don't like most of their other beers, so this was a welcome change. To comment on the style, if this wasn't classified as a Wheat, I would have no idea...this isn't even close to a normal Wheat style. This particular beer was brewed in November 2002. I bought this twelve ounce bottle at Beers of the World in Rochester, New York.

Magic Hat is always on the verge of getting it right. This pale ale is...well...pale. Itís plain, light, nothing to get real excited about. About two dollars over-priced. And donít be fooled by the self-deScription. This is not a wheat beer.
