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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
