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!

A hoppy sweet ale. Very unique combination. Primarily I like ipas but can drink this regularly.

Wow, I never knew a cream ale could have such flavor. This tasted like a hoppy lager. A little unfamiliar at first, but a nice change of pace.

On tap. Plasticy taste. There is an off flavor in this one that i cant pin down but it is unpleasant

JDBaker11058 (1538) - Maryland, USA - AUG 15, 2012
Appearance: medium rust brown, with a creamy tan head and a ton of suspended floaties; lots of lace. Aroma: slightly dank, earthy and light citrus hops, notes of caramel and graham cracker. Taste: almost fruity sweetness over caramel malts, with some mellow, earthy hops to balance. Finish: clean, smooth, with lingering toasty caramel and hops notes. Notes: Easy drinking, hard to classify, but tasty. Didn’t care for the look of it, but everything else about this beer was at least a tick above average.

Pours deep mahagony with a nice head, aroma of vanilla, caramel and candied sugar, round, flavor is malty with some biscuit and some herby hops, easy to drink, medium bodied

Cream ale? I’d say that there is very little in the way of "cream" coming through here. Nice fresh hop aroma and bitter taste with a balanced backbone of bready/caramel malts.

On draft at Capone’s in Philadelphia. The beer appears transparent and orange colored, with a good sized head that leaves ample lacing on the glass. The aroma is rather weak, with a light dose of malt. The flavor is really tasty, with a very subtle fruitiness and enjoyable malt flavors. This is by far the best cream ale I have ever had. The beer finishes with a healthy amount of bitterness, more so than expected. Overall, a very enjoyable beer. I can definitely see why this is the top rated cream ale.

On tap @ Lazy Boy Saloon. Cloudy light amber with medium tan head and significant carbonation. Aroma includes hints of citrus zest along with hops and caramel malt. Taste begins with heavy handed sweetness of honey followed by palatable bitterness and floral notes. Worth a taste, but not overly impressed by cream ales.

can - Pours hazy orange-b rown with a small head. It has a mild aroma of caramel malt. The flavor is sweet with some mild bitterness. It’s light bodied and has a rather bland malt profile. The finish is rather bitter. There’s a bubbly palate to this underwhelming beer. It made me think of an English bitter but without the smooth body of a cask brew.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2012 Can. Huge carbonation. Hoppy for the style. I drank it too late though, a bit stale. Girlfriend dug it. Finished like I drank it from a can.
