Style: American Pale Wheat Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.50%

Availability: Rotating

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.

A decent wheat beer with just a hint of lemony hops, but not much in the way of flavor beyond that. A half step above the commercial beers.

Shared by a cousin, thanks. Beer is yellow with a mild haze, a white head, small bubbles, moderate retention, low lacing, moderate carbonation, looks good.

Aroma is a little soapy, a little grainy, a little sweet, mild hops.

Beer is medium to light in body, sweet overall, a little hoppy, decent finish, meh, it's an american style wheat beer. Not a repeat for me
