COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our take on the classic summer wheat beer...its 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.

Supposedly this beer is perfect for mowing grass. Tastes like what you would get if you fermented the contents of your lawn bag. Add a squirt of lemon and you have hocus pocus. Not a fan ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Started off with a 3 inch head that died quickly to 1/4". Light yellow color and almost no aroma. Very limited flavor, but is smooth. Like the rest of Magic Hat Ive had, drain pour.

Sorry, didnt have an orange wedge to boost the flavor and hide the corn or honey or whatever additive is there in addition to the wheat. Boring appearance of pale clear yellow and no head. Not much to get excited about here.

This beer I do not like. It says that it is nice and crisp, but I felt it to be dry and almost cardboard tasting. Magic Hat seems to be trying to hard to put out original beers. THis one, though it tastes different does not taste at all good in my humble opinion. Would only drink it again if I had no recourse.

There is no hocus pocus unless that means it was effortless. This taste like a weak pilsner. The aroma and head are decent but everything else is not even beer. I hope you can pull a rabbit out with your next trick, there is no prestige here.

Clear, golden color and half an inch of white head. Only a distant lemon smell for an aroma. Strong grassy taste, which mixes poorly with the disjointed citrus notes that surface occasionally A tart, vaguely palate with an unpleasantly syrupy mead-like mouthfeel. Aftertaste like having sucked on a lemon... or a nine-volt battery. Needs some work.

Not impressive at all, very weak wheat beer, the usual cloudy appearance wasnt there, the beer was a clear golden color, it poured with a very nice fluffly white head but then quickly fanished, very little by way of aroma, only a little hint of clove & yeast in the nose, the flavors were very bland, very little usual wheat beer flavors, almost no banana & clove in the body, no yeasty type of flavor as well, body was too light & seemed a bit watery, pretty thin beer
