COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This copper colored ale is a silky, creamy dream. It’s malty, very mildly hopped, and lightly sweet, with a delicate hint of spice for that oh-so-drinkable, extra velvety flavor. A cool beer for the heat, whatever your latitude!

Pours a clear amber with a medium lt tan head. Aroma is super faint but has light sweet maltiness...caramel and light chocolate. Flavor definitely has light chocolate and mild roastiness. Mouthfeel is medium/full and the finish is roasty with cocoa notes.

Appearance: Dark copper in color, tan head. Aroma: strong aromas of vanilla ice cream and caramel. Taste: Sweet caramel and vanilla flavor. All malt flavor and almost no perceivable bitterness. Palate: Smooth and medium bodied Overall: Great cream ale. As others have commented it would pair well with dessert.

Pyobon (860) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 10, 2012
(on tap) Clear coppery mahogany with slight white head. Aroma is candy with subtle stone fruit and floral notes. Medium bodied, well carbonated with good mouthfeel: smooth and with a bit of interesting fizz. Unusual taste - there’s a lot of cream soda in there - also candy and sweetish malt with very little bitterness. Despite all these sweet flavours it is not oversweet or cloying. Overall this is an unusual, maybe even clever, beer that is easy to drink.

Poured out of a can. Nice frothy head, Deep amber color, with a mild aroma of ice tea and some spice. Tastes of vanilla ice cream, or maybe even a root beer float. Very creamy and delicious! A fabulous summer beer! This would pair well with just about any desert.

Courtesy of craftycarl21 at Smoke and Barrel. Hazy orange pour with a small off white head. Caramel malt and cream soda are pretty much all I got. Vanilla extract. Not awful, but not great.

Nose of caramel malts. Taste is same with a slight hop note. Very thin finish. Taste isn’t bad but this is not my style.

jstraw (1900) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 21, 2012
Can at Jerry’s. Copper with decent, creamy beige head / Earthy nose of sweet malt, bread, and spun sugar / Medium body, smooth and creamy, moderately sweet, with excellent balance and dry finish / Flavors of bread, toast, vanilla, and spun sugar, with notes of orange and pineapple / A distinctive cream ale, and a cut well above the usual Saturday night 6-pack style.

Draft at Smoke and Barrel DC. Slightly hazy amber pour, small head. Nose and flavor are really mostly caramel malt, touches of molasses and cream soda, and a bit of maple syrup and honey in there as well. Palate is uninteresting, doesn’t really stand out in any way. Sixpoint’s Sweet Action is a cream ale that separates itself from the pack stylistically; this does not.
