COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ah love is bitter and sweet, but which is more sweet, the bitterness of the sweetness, none has spoken it.

Sweet action is an idea; a concept. It is a simple representation of what makes beer great - the marriage of barley and hops in a harmonious balance of sweet and bitter!

Nice clear copper pour with a rocky head. Chunky lacing. Nose is caramel malt and herbal hops. Kinda sweet, some toffee, faint metal. Palate is pretty light. More floral and herbal hop flavor, but with muted bitterness. Coffee notes. Finishes with lingering herbal hop and caramel. Kinda weird, and not really what one would expect from a cream ale. Ok.

Yellowish color, small off white head. Aroma citrusy hops and some malt. Medium body, some carbonation. Flavor is mostly similar to a pale ale with nice balance of hops and malt, more towards the sweet side, very drinkable.

guzzler67 (1616) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JAN 22, 2016
Bronze appearance with a large, off white head and very good lacing. Muted aroma of herbal hops and a faint whiff of tropical fruit. Flavor is a bit more citrusy and pairs with whole grain bread. There is a distracting metallic note in the aftertaste. Medium bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel and a lingering finish. Mixed reaction to this one, especially as how true it is to the cream ale style.

ectuohy27 (875) - ESTONIA - JAN 13, 2016
Beautiful dark brown appearance, lively CO2...and tons and tons of hops. for North American craft beer-heads it’s normal and they can rate accordingly, but in Europe this is overkill esp for the style, and makes it downright unenjoyable

dlihcsnatas (534) - Texas, USA - JAN 5, 2016
Copper colored with decent head and smells of hops. Little more bitter than sweet but still a very good brew that is very enjoyable. About a dollar or two more per six pack than other comparable brews so not planning on making this an every day one.

Nose is floral, flavor is fruity, floral, citric, mandarin, grass, hemp. Medium sweet, light bitter, light fruity sour. Finish is long lasting hoppy medium bitter. Light body, thin texture, nearly flat carbonation. Easy, refreshing, simple and tasty APAish beer.

TedE (730) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 20, 2015
355ml can into pint. Smells of hops and stonefruit. Bronze beer, fluffy head, many fine bubbles. Quite sharp mouthfeel. Finish is oranges, resin and late ’Juicy-Fruit’. It’s a great beer but is it a Cream Ale? Doesn’t have a creamy texture and too MUCH flavour for my understanding of the style.

Draft @ Uiltje bar, Haarlem. Clear amber with a small white head. Aroma of sweet malts, honey, hops, bread. Taste is bitter sweet, sweet malts, bitter hops, light fruity. Light bitter sweet hoppy aftertaste. Bit thin, but not bad.

not really screaming cream ale. nice balance of malt and hops, but other than that... Nice sessionable brew. Not too complicated.

Hopmaestro (986) - Örebro, SWEDEN - NOV 19, 2015
Aroma is a little malty and a little hoppy. Some citrus, ripe oranges and white bread. Taste is clean and on the lower spectrum. Subtle hops and lemon zest in a medium malty soup. There’s a hint of sweet melon before it turns to a mid bitter finish.
