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.

tap@mugs. i thought magic hat would come up with a better wheat than this. i assumed it was an attempt at a wit as it was pale, slightly hazy, lightly lemony with some nasty traces of laundry detergent in the finish. thin and boring

bottle. Too bland of a beer. Taste is off balanced and has an odd spice to it. I guess it would go well with food on a hot day but i would pick others over this one.

Wow. Go figure, a light ale from Magic Hat. Nothing special, nothing to see here, folks, just keep moving along. Bread, sweetness, light hops and malt. Get your Bud friends over here if they want to drink an American-brewed light ale, I got a fridge full!

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

Reviewed from old notes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a hazy golden orange color with a one finger white foamy head. The aroma had a light deep wheatiness that kinda covers up everything else no matter how many times I had this. The taste was basically the same that comes across fairly bland. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a hard to put down sessionability - too much wheat perhaps. Overall, uh...for me I’m not a fan, probably wouldn’t come back to.

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 I’ve had, drain pour.

on tap at reservoir, waterbury. almost clear pale yellow without a head. very faint wheat and malts, some yeastiness, light herbal notes with a short but present citrusy finish. almost aggressive carbonation, light body.

Sorry, didn’t 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.
