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!

For a cream ale, this is exceptional. A bit too alcoholic to be a true session, but its perfect balance and mildness mean you want to make an exception. Tried in NYC in 2013.

Interesting cream ale. It has a light aroma. It has a pleasant golden color. The flavor is not very complex. It starts with a sweet fruity taste, but has a bitter finish. I was not expecting the finish to be as bitter.

pinkie (470) - New York, USA - JUN 14, 2013
Pours hazy orange, the color of blush on a peach. Tall head of soft, eggshell colored foam that dwindled to a layer on top and some creamy lace. Nose is fruity and juicy with peach and orange citrus. There’s a playful bite on the nose from the simcoe hops and a little pepper. Underneath is good bready malt that’s honey sweet. Taste is light and fruity with floral hops, peach, apricot and orange peel. The cracker and bread are sturdy but light as a feather and carry all that fruit over the palate with ease. Finishes with another bite from the simcoe on the back palate and leaves dry with a sticky, sweet aftertaste and a touch of bitter. Body is creamy and although well carbonated, it was downright silky.

This beer wasn’t short on hops at all and the hop character was intense but without oil or too much bitter. The simcoe never got catty and the bread, while sweet, never outclassed the fruit. Easy to see why Sixpoint was #1 at the NYS TAP festival. So far each offering is unique and expertly done. This was a graceful interpretation of a cream ale that drank easily and with a little panache.

12 ounce bottle divided by four. Amber color, bubbly, thin foam on top, sweet and bready aroma. Taste was assertively hopped and also pleasantly malted to balance things out. It had more flavor than I expected out of a cream ale. Not too shabby overall, very quaffable.

On draft at Brandon Brass Tap, poured a golden yellow color with aromas of grain, and some malt. Flavors are the same, some sweetness, and some light fruit, ok cream ale, this style of beer is not in my wheel house, meh.

Can from Fermentation. Deep golden pour with a frothy white head. Nose is sweet pale maltiness, piney hop bitterness and yeast. Sweet malty entry with a creamy body and a bitter finish. Not bad, solid refresher.

Can at Smith’s Billiards, Springfield, 19/05/13. Hazed golden maber with a medium sized white head. Nose is caramel, sugar, grass, hops. Taste comprises sugars, marshmallow, light hops, citrus, mineral tones. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, light bitterness in the finish. Ok.

PorterPounder (7316) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 6, 2013
Tallahassee, Fl. - ABC Fine Wine and Spirits - 16 oz can. Pours a medium dark golden, initially rocky white head. Aroma has a hint of wort, some ripening fruit, not unpleasant. Flavor has some nuttiness, some apple marmalade, some root beer hard candy. Mouthfeel has a bit of zest to it. Not bad - had notidea what to expect - no mention of cream ale on the can.

Has a nice ordeal of malts that goes with a session drinking. Smooth malts and low hops. Slightly creamy with a touch of tea tannis. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The aroma is very malty and somewhat buttery with a decent grassy hop. The appearance is amber gold with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall a great session.
