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.

served in a brown 12 oz. bottle.

avoid this beer. just an awful example of an american wheat ale. please don't expect much from this one. it's totally filtered. no cloudiness. pale, yellow, clear appearance. not much head. too fizzy and utterly lacking body.
there's no flavor here at all except for an astringent, metallic aftertaste that hits you right after some slight hop bitterness drops out.
you can't taste the wheat malt and if you want a pale, slightly hoppy, session beer, try their mother lager, which is much better, imho.

This was the fourth beer I tasted grom the Magic hat summer variety pack. A golden brown appearance that was slightly cloudy. Very little foam after the pour. Nothing to report regarding the smell. Its a very drinkable not bitter at all. Great beer for the summer time.
