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!

illidurit (2243) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 2, 2012
Can poured into a pint glass. Immediately just a not-good beer. Sickly maltiness, a sort of grainy puddle of a beer, with an intolerable astringency that recalls chewing on a teabag steeped in body odor. To call this a "harmonious balance of sweet and bitter" is like throwing a cat at a harp and calling it a harmonious balance of fluffy and melodic. Sort of.

(Can) Pours a clear golden body with a small white head. Aroma of grass, herbs, caramel, and baseball card pack bubblegum. Flavor of citrus, grass, caramel, and florals with a moderately dry finish.

Color is amber and orange, I smell malt, caramel, hops, citrus and bread. I taste cream, sweet malt, bitter hops, citrus/fruits and light wheat. A whole lot is going on in this beer, complex. Damn good beer!

The glib poetry on the side of the can sums it up pretty well; this beer is sweet and hoppy and all-around tasty. I prefer it on tap, especially locally in NYC, but it's pretty awesome that it comes in 16 oz cans in the store. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Creamy vanilla nose, pours hazy orange with white head, moderate lacing. Palate is slight cream, mostly hoppy, thin and brief. Very refreshing. Exceptional beer.

For a cream ale, it’s probably one of the best I’ve had. Well balanced but there’s nothing outstanding going on here.
