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!

gripweed57 (1113) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - AUG 7, 2015
12 ounce can. Amber orange with a moderate, rocky beige head. Subtle toasted malty nose. Some citrus hops, too. Flavor is soft and sweet with a salty caramel note. There is slight tanginess in the backdrop. Midtaste has citrus hops and resiny bitterness, again slight and subtle. Finish is dry and clings to the palate like a fingerprint to a clean window. A subtle ale with wonderful balance.

Tognetta (494) - Campinas, BRAZIL - AUG 2, 2015
Âmbar levemente turva, espuma bege de boa formação e média retenção. Aroma adocicado, lichia, lúpulo floral também presente. Paladar de amargor leve/médio, corpo leve e baixa carbonatação. Um pouco aguada, mas com boa drinkability. Aftertaste de baixa persistência, exceto pelo amargor um pouco mais longo. Boa, mas sem destaques extraordinários.

EdKing (2232) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2015
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. It’s so clean it’s like a lager that’s 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, it’s 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. It’s a drinkable brew, and a bit undefined; but apparently that’s what they were looking for when they created this cream ale. ’A little bit of this and a little bit of that’ seems to be fairly accurate and I can’t say I’m enjoying this in any particular style, but it certainly isn’t 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.
