Notes/Commercial Description:
A toast to weeds, rays, and summer haze. It was a light, crisp ale for mowing lawns, hitting lazy fly balls and communing with nature, Hocus Pocus was offered up as a summer sacrifice to cloudless days. Its malty sweetness finished tart and crisp and was best appreciated with a wedge of orange.

2.75/5  rDev -18.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured chilled in ale glass

A: copper; clear; nice foamy head; great carb action, fantastic lacing
S: sweet, malty aroma; s'ok I guess
T: solid wheat beer, with a tinny aftertaste; hints of lemon; the wheat is strong; not much in the way of hops; semisweet; not very complex

Eh, so-so beer.

Serving type: bottle
