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!

tricksta_p (3139) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUN 21, 2016
Can at home. Aroma is sweetish toasted biscuity malt, resinous hops, touch of fruits. Flavour is light to moderate sweet and moderate to medium bitter. Body is medium. Hardly a smasher like the Sixpoint Crisp or Bengali, but pretty smooth and agreeable.

superspak (4388) - Michigan, USA - MAY 31, 2016
12 ounce can into pint glass, best before 3/18/2016. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy orange/amber color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and rocky off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice dense soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, light pine, honey, toasted biscuit, light caramel/nuttiness, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/floral hops and bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, light pine, honey, toasted biscuit, light caramel/nuttiness, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, lemon/orange zest, honey, toasted biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/floral hops and bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and moderately creamy/bready/grainy mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.2%. Overall this is a great pale/cream ale hybrid style. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/floral hops and bready malt flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Goodgrief (1972) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - MAY 16, 2016
Amber pour, grainy aroma. Cereal, light fruit and caramel. Someone said lemongrass...I can see it. Nice full mouthfeel, coating on the tongue. Still zippy fruitiness. I liked it.

polo_marco (261) - milton, Vermont, USA - MAY 13, 2016
Smells of sweet malts oatmeal lemongrass and a touch Orange rind at the end. See through amber color. Taste starts off with slightly sweet malts followed by lemongrass a bit of Orange with a slightly bitter dry finish. Light body with sweet crisp carbonation. Not to many flavors in this brew but the ones that stand out I really enjoy this is a great summer beer. Nice work!

Quick3Beers (806) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 9, 2016
Pours an amber from a can. Tropical fruit and slight citrus notes in the nose, somewhat dank resinous flavor is added to the mix, very thin, not much malt backbone. Meh.

Douberd (4528) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - APR 24, 2016
(Sixpoint Sweet Action) Can 355 ml at home, served into a shaker, ABV 5.2%. Second cream ale. Deep orange colour on the body, mostly clear, with a tall but thin off-white head on top, with good retention. Aroma has citrus, grassy hops, tangerine. Taste has caramel malts, hops giving flavours of citrus, light orange peel, tangerine, nicely bitter on the finish. Medium body, good amount of carbonation. Very good.

basaywhat (167) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - APR 17, 2016
12 oz can. Hazy, burnt orange colored beer with a frothy, white head. Aromas of grassy hops. Tastes of grassy/floral hops, some toffee, and toasted malt. Slightly creamy mouthfeel. Bittersweet in the finish with some grapefruit/citrus notes. Hoppier than expected, more like an IPA than a cream ale in my opinion.
