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!

Pours darker than most cream ales, with a thin layer of white head that disappears fairly quick. Lacing is average. Slight hoppy presence in the aroma...maybe some citrus. Nice malt and slight wheat presence in the taste. Pretty good cream ale.

blankboy (5950) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 20, 2012
Can [473ml]. Pours a cloudy, bubbly orange-amber with an average size diminishing frothy off-white head. Semi-mild aroma of resiny hops, light sweetness, sweet pale malt, some fruit and spices. Flavour of hops and fruit along with pale malt and spices. Decent bitter finish. More like a Pale Ale then a Cream Ale, which is a good thing. Medium bodied. Nothing great but itís pretty good, I liked it. -- Rated via Beer Buddy.

TURDFERGUSON (3930) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 19, 2012
Can from a local deli. the guys there went out their way to help me. and even split up a few of these 4 packs for me. I was impressed with the service. that place belongs on ratebeer for their service alone. and a not too shabby selection. anyway. back to this berrr. Super orange hazy with a medium sized white sudsy head. Nose is sweet, but not overly sugary, some light citrus and resinous hops, a little bit vegetal, dust and dirt lingering. Flavor is pretty good. Mildly sweet, mildly bitter. Nothing great (but still a very good cream ale for all i know, just not my style), but easy drinking and approachable cream ale.

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - APR 19, 2012
Can. Poured a medium sized off-whte head that was mostly lasting, fair amount of lacing, hazy body, fast rising carbonation, and a golden hue. The Aroma was malty, semi-sweet and pine. Ditto for the Flavor. The Mouthfeel was mildly tingly and this is a medium bodied Cream Ale beer. Overall, this beer had very subtle aromas and flavors which took away from the overall experience of drinking/rating.

madvike (2659) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - APR 18, 2012
16oz. can - Pours lightly hazy amber with a big foamy off-white head. Light herbal hopping on the nose, big barley graininess, and a light honey sweetness. Really big fluffy carbonation thatís extremely smooth in the mouth. Grainy taste as well, with a bit sharper hop profile, a bit of toffee, and a drying mineral finish. The hops just have a bit of boozy sharpness to them that are a bit off-putting. Iíd like to see them a bit smoother. Still, itís easy-to-drink and flavorful, without being too heavy. Light years different than Spotted Cow even as theyíre both listed as cream ales, but Iíd take this any day of the week.

DrnkMcDermott (2776) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - APR 17, 2012
Tasted from can at Standard market, Westmont. A darker gold color than the Crisp pils. Smell is much lighter, almost hard to find. But the taste more than makes up for it. Kind of citrusy, like a pale ale at first. Then a slight spicy note of wheat malts.

From Geneís. Strange beer. Creamy and sweet. Hops at the very end hiding under other flavors, seems out of place. Flat palate. Not bad but maybe not my thing. Serving: Can

HonkeyBra (3249) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - APR 15, 2012
16 oz. can. What? A cream ale? That isnít spotted cow? AWESOME. Pours a hazy amber pour with a bright, white, thick head. Aroma of herbal hops, amber and caramel malt. Mild sweetness in the nose as well. Flavor is balanced between mild sweet and mild bitter notes. Nice, creamy sweetness towards the back of the throat. Medium bodied. Finishes on a bitter note. This was a very nice surprise.

NikkTwist (1519) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 13, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2013 Draft. Slightly dark cloudy amber. Big head that disappeared quickly. Would not consider this a cream ale. More a marriage of light toasty malted ale and a standard IPA. Not much aroma but some lively flavor. Slight hop bite but fairly smooth start to finish. Good session brew.

Actually somewhat dark for a cream ale. Looks like a dark IPA, almost an amber. Thin head. Aroma is sweet and yeasty. A hint of orange. Flavor is much the same. That pervasive doughy, yeasty flavor that I donít care for in NA beers. Defined spike of orangey hops in the back. Low on the bitterness, letting the sweetness show through. A little hint of woody resin in the middle. Pretty full of flavor for the style. Carbonation is a little heavy. Full bodied and slick on the tongue. Just a weird beer. Blindly, Iíd have to guess this was an APA, but with something off about it. It doesnít fit the typical Cream Ale mold, but then again Iíve never really figured out the point of a Cream Ale anyway. Not bad, but Iíd rather see something else as a regular offering from Sixpoint.
