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!

Pours a rich copper color with a minimal head... nice balance of sweet and bitter coming through... a little burnt sugar mixed with a wild bret on the front end and a little saaz style bitterness on the finish.

another in the sixpoint lineup. enjoyed a can in my pils glass. Deep orangey yellow like the edges of the can label. Hazey with a half finger head. Aroma is some light citrus , maybe some grape candy flavor and paper. Taste is light and wild, bitter with fresh matiness coming in the finish. Very refreshing, may buy more for a cookout.

jcos (1541) - Maryland, USA - MAR 28, 2012
Location/Date:Can on March 28th, 2012.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy dark orange.
Aroma: Citrusy, light.
Taste:Medium light bitterness, nice amount of sweetness from the malt. Not overbearing, balanced.
Palate:Medium light, really smooth and creamy. Quick finish,

Summary: My first cream ale rating! This beer is really interesting - there is a nice amount of flavor of bitterness and sweet, but it is not overbearing. Iím really impressed by the palate of how smooth it is and quick to finish. This is a really nice beer especially considering the alcohol percentage of 5.2%, could be "sessionable".

Tall boy. Slightly cloudy copper pour with a thin off white head. Aroma of sweet malt, yeast and bitter earthy hops. Medium bodied creamy taste with a slight citrusy hoppy finish.

I am impressed. I love it when a canned beer comes through. Darker pour than expected. What is good here is how fresh it seems. Very goot blend of malt and hops to give it a perfect blend of bitter/sweet! Now to find it consistantly!

Birthday beer #1, Sixpoint just arrived in Indianapolis yesterday. This beer pours a light to medium bodied orangish dull copper in color with a creamy white, one finger head. Itís much darker than I anticipated. The aromas are different than I expected. I get some slightly sweet amber malts, light citrus, light happiness, and it has a certain creaminess to it, indicative of a can.The flavors are light and smooth. I get a lot of smooth malts with citrus accents and a ever so slight hop bitterness. It is incredibly smooth and creamy, obviously made for a can. Itís solid, and much different than other cream ales Iíve had. It has more body and isnít as session able yet has more flavor and more to offer.

Sure doesnt smell like a cream ale, like sticking my nose in a hop bin,defintely more American Pale Aleish,,a successful dry hopping procedure, that pretty much dominates the nose. Taste is however totaly unlike the aroma,here you get a straight balance of grain malt and grain hop,then hop bitterness in finish, That balanced blend is then washed from the palate almost immediately after the swallow,very mysterious how that happens. I take it this is supposed to be a surprising mix of malt sweetness(hence that Cream ale designation) and hop bitterness, but that quick ghostly appearance and disappearance of the malt ,makes a style assignment impossible. Very drinkable,session type,would go great with a spicey sweet salsa

Pint-sized can. Poured slightly hazy medium orange with a creamy beige head. The aroma picked up sweet pale malts and fruity notes, with white spices and a touch of orange zest accenting.. really nice. The flavor opened with tangy carbonation and the aforementioned spices, pale and fruity notes supported the core.. tangy fruit skins and spices on the edges, with more fruity character through the finish.. a tad sharper than expected, but I canít say it didnít work. Light-medium bodied and well-carbonated on the palate.. it wanted to be smooth, but sharpness and some residual bitterness got in the way.. overall a solid brew that Iíd drink again.

Boutip (4738) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 21, 2012
Can: Poured a medium bright amber color ale with a large white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of semi-sweet caramel malt with light citrus hoppy notes. Taste is also a good mix between some caramelized malt with a light hoppy finish with subtle notes of citrus. Body is about average with good carbonation. Nice session style beer with limited complexity.

Pours an amber color with off-white head. Aroma is mostly malty with caramel malts. Slight hint of citrus hops as well. Creamy mouthful with citrus hops and caramel malts. Decent bitter finish.
