Brewed by:
Magic Hat Brewing Company
Vermont, United States

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-Pours yellow. Pale. Lightly illuminated. Head is off-white and foamy. Leaves light lacing.

S-Light nose. Wheaty and yeasty. A tad bit grassy. Smells a bit watery. Light breadiness.

T-AKin to the nose. Wheat, yeast, mellow spice. An apple flavor. White bread. Minutely grassy.

M-Easy drinking and bubbly with a watery body. Crisp enough to warrant a quick kill via my tasting glass.

O/D-A bland one. Has its high points but it is far from memorable. Just another brew by Magic Hat.
