In this beer blog, we are going to get into another beer, which is Hocus Pocus, from Magic Hat Brewery. If you read my earlier beer blog posts, you know the history of Magic Hat Brewery. If you have not, please, read those beer blog posts to get to know this craft brewery. Let us get into Summer Wheat Ale.
It has a light to normal copper color with a semi white constant head. The aroma has a citrus notes but it is pretty fated. The taste has a light carbonation to smooth lemon notes. The aftertaste has a hoppy dry finish. It is a nice refreshing drinkable brew.
Here is a description from the beer bottle:
The ancient ritual of brewing a distinctly rich and flavorful beer is a performance to behold. Our mysterious melange of time-honored ingredients harmonize with chaotic chemistry, humble patience, and blind faith to create unique beers to share in the rousing company of kindred spirits. Cheers!
Here is a description from their website (www.magichat.net):
A light, crisp ale with a malty sweetness and delightfully tart finish.
A toast to weeds, rays and summer haze. Hocus Pocus is a light, crisp ale for mowing lawns, hitting lazy fly balls and communing with nature. It is offered up as a summer sacrifice to cloudless days. Its malty sweetness finishes tart and crisp and is best appreciated with a wedge of orange.
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
In the end, this is a nice summer drinkable but yet refreshing beer. It is a nice relaxing beer to put down while doing the summer things like lawn work or pick me up baseball game. It has some nice wheat ale notes but yet light in body to keep you drinking it through out the day. There is some nice sweet malty notes but a nice fruit to tart finish. It is drinkable. I am not a huge fan of wheat ales but it is still pretty average brew. I recommend it if you like mass-produced or wheat beers. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
