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!

Can in Wetherspoons in New Malden. Copper to orange coloured beer with a white head. Over chilled. Nose is some earthy, musty sweaty hop, boiled sweets, specifically barley sugar. Taste is clean and crisp and slight ale fruity, earthy dry tangy hop, ale yeasty. Itís so clean itís like a lager thatís been dry hopped. Perfectly drinkable, not very exciting.

Can at Wetherspoons, Wokingham, 27th July 15. Light amber, not a massive Aroma, taste is light bitter, some floral dry notes on the finish, and a creamy mouth feel, not that interesting.

The pour is a medium amber, with an insignificant, off-white head. The soft, porous cap diminishes within minutes to a thin ring at the glass with only a wisp of the foam remaining across the surface. Muted caramel and mandarin oranges is my take, citrus-y hops biting the air as I breathe deeply, inhaling the aroma. The temperature is 45 degrees, perfect for my appreciation of most light-medium bodied ales, and so I tip the glass and pull a mouthful, flooding my taste buds with the brew. The flavor is a mirror image of the aroma, I find their "Sweet Action"; for me, itís clover honey in light malts, a slight pine resin across my tongue, very dry after the swallow. The finish is dry, in that limbo-land between tasty and tasteless and on the gauge just where it makes me want to have another pull to freshen my mouth and re-engage my taste buds. Itís a drinkable brew, and a bit undefined; but apparently thatís what they were looking for when they created this cream ale. íA little bit of this and a little bit of thatí seems to be fairly accurate and I canít say Iím enjoying this in any particular style, but it certainly isnít bad as a weekend drinker. Just one of those that I reach for because I need another beer and not because I find myself craving it.

Can. Orange ale with a thick off white head. Nose is oranges, tangerine and pineapple. Taste is initially bitter. Grapefruit and lemon. A slight honey and creaminess as it settles. Yummy.

BBD 3/18/15. Pours a clear amber. World class head volume, lacing and retention. Outstanding nose of citrus hops (orange, tangerine) with a bit of spiciness over a grassy and herbal hop background. Hints of caramel are also quite evident. Light medium body with a nice smooth texture. Superb carbonation with a nice effervescent burst in the middle and a nice prickly finish. The outstanding flavor profile is slightly intense, a bit complex and perfectly balanced. A blend of hop flavor resides over a mild bitterness and covers the aromas of the nose. From the middle on, a bit of pine and orange zest come to the forefront with a touch of spice. As the bitterness ebbs, caramel and biscuit arrive to perfectly balance. The finish is clean and a tad dry.

Yeah I like this a LOT. Damn tasty and some complexity in there too. A hint of sweet toffee follows your zesty IPA taste. A super beer and one of my new faves. 9/10.

Nice aroma, with balance on citrusy hops and caramel malts. Taste is delicate and bitter and herbal. Feels really creamy on the mouth, finishing dry and hoppy. Really similar to a APA. Another good one from these guys.

Good starting head that leaves blotches of lace. The brew is cloudy with darker amber color. Unusual hop bite for the style. I smell pine. There is a mild lighter malt nose as well. The flavor matches the smell profile. Although the can states "more sweet", I find this beer to be more bitter, particulary during and after the swallow. Good body with an appropriate amount of carbonation.
