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.

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.

Braudog (6494) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - MAY 6, 2007
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)

Bottle (12oz). And I promised myself no more goddam american wheat swill. Pale slightly hazy gold, decent bright white head. Aroma of light sweet grain and dried flower hops, a hint of fruit and yeast, but not much at all. Taste of light candy malt, a little sour grain, mild yeast and candied citrus fruit - sort of hard to swallow for some reason. Thickish, still body, sticky mouthfeel - weird, not awful, wont have it again.

Pours a copper color with a decent off white head. Smells of wheat, lemons, hay, fresh cut grass. Tastes of lemons and chewable vitamins.

12 oz bottle. Wow, this beer really isnt good. Poured a light straw with a tiny head that disappeared so quickly I was lucky to see it at all. Ive 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.

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

TheBeerGod (6105) - 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.

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

jgb9348 (5920) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 11, 2003
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.
