This is a very drinkable beer, maybe a little lighter overall than I expected from a Hef. Had a good aroma punch with a lot of...clove? A good body and punch going in, but it faded a bit quicker on the tongue than I was ready for. If your're in L.A., this is a good general-purpose beer that won't overwhelm a meal.

One of my favorite SoCal hefs,light, easy drinkability, and great to enjoy on a hot day. I love hefs and local beers which bring me to this one so often

Light clear golden color poured aggressively out of 12oz can into Schneider Weisse glass, very little head with lacing. Sweet pleasantly yeasty smell. Initial mild bitterness followed by strong clove and finishes with a touch of banana and has little aftertaste. Almost sessionably light taste, good hefe and I love that it's local to me in LA.

Pours light straw color. 1 finger of head that dissipates quickly.

Aroma is very tame. A little honey sweetness, tad bit of cloves, and banana.

Taste is rather weak, but I guess that is to be expected at such a low abv. I get the classic banana and clove but with a touch of lemon. While the flavors are there, they are mellow and a bit weak. Rather watery feel.

Overall, the beer is easy drinking but nothing special. I paid 1.99 for the can, which is definitely not worth the price. I'm pairing it with a spice-rubbed steak and salad with chipotle ranch. It gets a 68.5/100.
