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!

Stine (1746) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 16, 2016
Surprisingly dark, burnished orange hue; clear with a skimming of off-white. Creamed corn and rancid butter in the aroma after an early rush of bright, melony hop and honey. Slick, sweet, a touch hot, wooden bitterness, nail polish. The flavor is burly and disoriented, with bitter orange peel and pine clumsily suffocating whatever stylistic integrity might be present. It is medicinal and cloyingly sweet, with a vanilla hard candy flavor that can fall in the diacetyl spectrum. There is no crisp edge to the heavy-leaning body; it seems unlikely this could ever be blindly recognized as a cream ale.

Tap at McCoy’s. Pint glass. Light copper with small head and poor lacing. Subtle hop aroma. Sweet and light fruit . Oily resin and pleasant finish.

drpimento (3004) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 29, 2016
It’s pretty good all the way around, but because of its pronounced hop characteristics, gets points off for not being true to style. Still really good drinking beer. Would have again.

kevinsenn (1951) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 15, 2016
Can from Beers of the World, Henrietta. Pleasant light fruity c-hop aroma. Tastes like a great IPA... That?s been watered down. Bitter sweet c-hops, and pine. Good, but, as I mentioned, a little watery.

Frozer (240) - Illinois, USA - FEB 14, 2016
Great balance of the described sweet and bitter. Aroma is citrus and floral, preps your palate for an ipa like punch. Flavor is surprisingly sweet and creamy. Very smooth and sessionable.

justsayswell (260) - Mission, Kansas, USA - FEB 7, 2016
Nice clear copper pour with a rocky head. Chunky lacing. Nose is caramel malt and herbal hops. Kinda sweet, some toffee, faint metal. Palate is pretty light. More floral and herbal hop flavor, but with muted bitterness. Coffee notes. Finishes with lingering herbal hop and caramel. Kinda weird, and not really what one would expect from a cream ale. Ok.

bbbeer (706) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 25, 2016
Yellowish color, small off white head. Aroma citrusy hops and some malt. Medium body, some carbonation. Flavor is mostly similar to a pale ale with nice balance of hops and malt, more towards the sweet side, very drinkable.

guzzler67 (1650) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JAN 22, 2016
Bronze appearance with a large, off white head and very good lacing. Muted aroma of herbal hops and a faint whiff of tropical fruit. Flavor is a bit more citrusy and pairs with whole grain bread. There is a distracting metallic note in the aftertaste. Medium bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel and a lingering finish. Mixed reaction to this one, especially as how true it is to the cream ale style.

ectuohy27 (996) - ESTONIA - JAN 13, 2016
Beautiful dark brown appearance, lively CO2...and tons and tons of hops. for North American craft beer-heads it’s normal and they can rate accordingly, but in Europe this is overkill esp for the style, and makes it downright unenjoyable

dlihcsnatas (595) - Texas, USA - JAN 5, 2016
Copper colored with decent head and smells of hops. Little more bitter than sweet but still a very good brew that is very enjoyable. About a dollar or two more per six pack than other comparable brews so not planning on making this an every day one.
