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.

Bottle: Crystal clear and mellowly yellow with a thin but withstanding head of white foam. Sweet aroma. The drink is syrupy sweet, with a twist of honey and even green tea ... very mellow drinker even for an Amerian wheat. (#2842, 5/6/2007)

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.

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.

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

TheBeerGod (5997) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - SEP 9, 2007
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.

Bottle Pours out a yellow topped with a white head. Aroma of wheat and malts. Tast of grain and a touch of hops at the end.

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.

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.

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

Overall Impression: Havenít had this one for a for a while, but I remember it being a relatively average to below average Wheat Ale...
