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!

Braudog (5489) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - NOV 20, 2011
Can. Orange-amber beer with a thin yet stoic blanket of foam. The aroma is sweet indeed -- This drinks with a musty essence, like wet hops. Makes me think of a rainy fall day in the forest. (#4358, 11/20/2011)

TheGB (480) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - NOV 8, 2011
Pours amber with a thick 1" head. Nice aroma of light malt, yeast, hops and some raisins. Light to medium palate with a smooth taste that is a bit creamy.

jethrodium (357) - Berkeley, California, USA - NOV 8, 2011
16 oz can courtesy of myspoonistoobig. Thanks Michael. Pours a cloudy copper amber with a small light tan head that has decent retention and leaves some light lacing. The aroma is caramel, some breadiness as well as some light citrus. The initial taste is sweet caramel, followed by some breadiness and some light grapefruit. Light bodied. Creamy mouthfeel. Moderate carbonation.

puboflyons (1887) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 5, 2011
From the 16 flo. oz. can stamped: Best Before 17Nov2011. It pours a medium amber with a slight haze and little to no head. A good dose of hops on the nose along with peaches and yeast. The body is above medium and creamy like i should be. Milly bitter hops and meaty fruits in the taste with a pleasant creaminess. Likeable.

LinusStick (2757) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 29, 2011
Meh...A so so beer, though I don’t agree that this is a cream ale. Aroma was OK. Caramel malt with a hint of roastiness. Pour was a murky amber/light brown with a thin off white film for a head. Taste was a little disappointing. This beer is all malt driven. Notes of toffee and caramel are detectable but not very full or strong. Metallic aftertaste that is somewhat bitter, but not hoppy. Medium carbonation. Very average.

glennmastrange (2145) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - OCT 28, 2011
Can. Light nutty and caramel for the malt, moderate flowers and perfume for the hops, with wine, ginger and berries in the background. Head is small, fizzy, white with nolacing and is almost fully diminishing. Color is clear amber/orange. Flavor starts lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes with a hint of sweetness and lightly to moderately bitter. Palate is medium, watery with a lively carbonation. It’s was kind of said after smelling the complex and fruity aroma and the flavor just didn’t hold up to it. Still a good drinker though.

Elwood (2960) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - OCT 24, 2011
Serving: 16 oz. can from State Line Liquors. It pours a hazy deep gold color with a small, styrofoam like, white head. The nose is a little grainy and sweet but it has a nice little floral and pine hop action too. Some grain, but mostly hops with those floral and pine notes from the nose. Thin on the tongue but thirst quenching with a dry finish. I could pound this brew like nobody’s business. A great substitute for a lager.

VTHopHead (1505) - Barre, Vermont, USA - OCT 23, 2011
Can/16oz - Pours a hazy golden amber in color with a medium white head that settled to a creamy covering over the beer. Aroma was medium of biscuit malts, bready yeasts and citrus hops. Flavor is medium hoppy with plenty of bread dough malts. Some small amount of diacetyl, but not enough to detract from the taste of the beer. I like this way better than Genny Cream!

TheBeerGod (5053) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - OCT 22, 2011
Can. Amber pour with a short tan head. Aroma is grainy and hoppy with tea leaves, soft citrus and light caramel. Taste is hoppy with soft citrus, tea leaves, light spicy hops, thinned caramel, and grains. Light bready malt as well. Body is medium with a soft bubbly carbonation. Ends with more tea leaves, caramel, grassy and spicy hops, light citrus and grains.
