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!

Looking to try a good cream ale, and this isn’t it. Pours a nice clear copper wit h thin white top. Aroma hits with hops foremost when I was hoping for malt. Way too much hops in the flavor and aftertaste obscures what may be decent malt characteristics. Ultimately this is just a strange take on pale ale.

Can. Pours amber with off white head. Aroma is sweet and malty. Taste is thin, sweet malty with a little sweet hoppy finish. Easy drinker but forgettable.

Can - pours dark orange with a small lacy head. Aroma is quite hippy withstand decent amount of caramel. Taste is nicely balanced hop and malt come through right across the palate. Creamy mouthfeel.

12 oz signature Sixpoint can. Lighter clear golden pour with a thin fizz head. Surprised to see the cream ale tag here. Drinks more like a sweeter side pale. Hop sturdy and a refreshing, cool finish. Nice beer.

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 (3076) - 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 (1970) - 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.
