COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our take on the classic summer wheat beer...it’s 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.

Reviewed from notes. Poured a really light yellow color with a bit of a white head and some clearly visible carbonation. The nose is some light citrus along with quite a bit of grain. The taste is grainy and has some light lemon notes. Light and crisp, this was a pretty good summer brew. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 11-14-2010

12 oz bottle. Wow, this beer really isn’t good. Poured a light straw with a tiny head that disappeared so quickly I was lucky to see it at all. I’ve 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.

Strong wheat flavor.

Straw color with a moderate, dense soft peak head. LIght sweet wheat aromas with only a hint of citrus peel in the background. Fairly full in feel, but gets watery in the end. Light malt and wheat mingle with a mild apple tartness. Quenching and light. This would be easy to drink on a hot summer night. Overall not a bad american wheat, even-though I still do not really understand the style.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4919) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 15, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 27, 2006 I am a wheat fan but only moderately fond of this brewer - and tend to be rather leery of American Wheat as a style. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a clear pale yellow color with only a trace of a white head that fades instantly. The aroma is faint malts and faint hops. The flavor is light malts and a hint of banana. A rather poor wheat.

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 blasé – thus perfect for summer?

Man, this beer smells, and even, initially, tastes like budweiser. Bland to the extreme, but leaves a decent, light finish. I guess, if I weren’t into good beer, this would be great. Magic Hat really disappoints me with this one.

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.

Draft. Pretty decent beer. Aroma is sweet, and flavor is a little fruity. The only downside was that it felt a little watery.

Quite wheaty in the aroma. Not a fan of this. Just has those gross malty wheay characters of wheat beers that are not good.
