Magic Hat "Hocus Pocus"
Magic Hat Brewing Company - South Burlington, Vermont USA
Wheat Ale (ABV 4.5%) (IBU 13)

[Suggested Glassware: Weizen Glass]

Rating: 2.8/5.0

Aroma: 6/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 6/10
Palate: 2/5
Overall: 11/20

The pour was a clear light golden yellow with a large (2-3 finger) white cottony head that lasted a good while, eventually reducing to a medium film with fair spotty lacing.

The aroma was of a light straw malt and a moldy cobweb yeast with notes of citrus (lemon) and wheat.

Taste was mild and lightly sweet with a hint of citrus from the get go, with a nice crisp wheat flavor and a slight citrus peel bitterness towards the finish. The flavor stuck around for a decent duration with a crisp citrus taste left lying on the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with an almost fizzy carbonation.

Overall a Wheat Ale with a light bitterness and a good crisp refreshing taste. Great beer for a hot summer’s day...
