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!

Drinking a can of Sweet Action thought this may be an Amber Beer. However, the mild bitterness, golden color, and sweet malts blend well to make an upstanding Cream Ale. Another surprising beer from Sixpoint.

Growler. Pours a clear, somewhat bubbly amber leaning towards the dark side with a very thick and frothy ivory head. Subtle, malty aroma has a firm note of woody hops, almost like straw. Flavor, though is bolder than most blonde ales I have tried, malty and fruity and a little hoppy. Texture is fairly firm and lively, leaving a nice malty, hoppy and fizzy finish. Sweet action indeed!

On draft after a can experience and after the New Order Philly Concert. The pour was orange to pale orange. Thin normal head. Aroma of grains and sweet malts, citrus. Flavor of cereal, grains, fruits (sure, tropical works), dry hops in the finish. Moderate body and carbonation is light. Decent brew.

From the 16oz can. Pours a dark gold with a thick white head. Tropical fruit, citra hop aroma. Taste is smooth clean malt, tropical fruit and a hint o hop bitterness. Tasty brew that works well on a hot day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can. Nose is really hop forward and bitter, with some great floral and grapefruit notes to it. Taste isnít too bitter, thought thatís definitely there- I get a hint of sweetness coming through too. Very nice drink.

Can at Citi Field. Nose of grass citrus, corn, pale malt. More bitterness than is typical in the style. Medium, somewhat creamy, body. Nice summer beer.

Slight sweetness and a little citrus-y but all in all not very flavorful. Probably wonít buy it again.

16oz can. Rating #432. Clear copper pour with a nice off-white head. Nice light hop aroma with a bit of caramel. Light hoppy flavor as well with a nice light bitter aftertaste. Good stuff. (2834)

Can: Lets start by saying that I enjoyed this beer quite a bit. Itís malty, but bitter, creamy but refreshing. But then let me say that I opened this wanting a cream ale...which this doesnít fill the need for. Itís too bitter for what I was expecting. Wouldnít turn this down, especially on a hot day like today, sitting in the sun, soaking it up.
