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!

16 oz can thanks to ChairMissing. Amber-orange in color. Some caramel malt and slightly vegetal hops. Smooth caramel malt with a little grain and solid, but mild pine hops. Mild residual bitterness. Good, but forgettable.

Draft pint at Anthony’s, Harrisburg. Copper with a small ring of cream. Nose is earthy grain, caramel, toast and light citrus. Flavor is the same. Light-medium body is smoothly carbonated, balanced and an easy drinker.

callmemickey (2545) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 20, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 A: Golden-amber body.. moderate sized offwhite head... good lacing... moderate retention S: Solid citric and floral hop notes. Delicate malts. T: A nicely crafted american blonde. Its got a fresh field feel to it. Between the citrus notes,the plentiful floral tones, the orchard fresh peach highlights and the bready-wheat like malts this is a nice beer. M: Medium light body. Near ideal carbonation. A slightly lingering semi-dry finish is a treat. O: A great session brew at 5% and a healthy dose of flavor. Drinks nicely. Good hop quotient and could be close to sessionable. Good job.

Leafs93 (1649) - Dunmore, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 19, 2012
Pours amber with a white head. Aroma is caramel, citrus and florals. Taste is sweet with a bitter finish. Light mouthfeel with some stickyness. Overall this was more reminiscent of an IPA then a cream ale.

sailracer (390) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 8, 2012
Can. Pours a murky dark gold with medium head. The aroma is hops and spice, kind of like a hefeweizen. The initial taste is bitter moving towards a spicy, lemony finish with a pleasant lingering aftertaste. Not what I was expecting. An OK beer.

hainer (19) - New York, USA - JAN 6, 2012
Had it twice: cool to cold and in a stemmed pilsner glass, as recommended, and freezing cold and out of a can. The difference between the two was radical, not just incremental. Properly served, everything comes through: light but lively carbonation, thin but not too thin body, head the announces substance, an immediate taste of citrus that quickly mellows, receding to let the sharp bitters take over. Overall, very nicely balanced: even harmonious, as the label claims. If a cream ale is meant to taste close to a kolsh, though, this one isn’t anywhere near. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

shrubber85 (7314) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JAN 4, 2012
Can. Sweet orange malt and citrus peel aroma. Hazy golden yellow color with nice large, fluffy head. Lightly sweet orange and moderately bitter grapefruit peel flavor. Nice and unusual - only hoppy cream ale I’ve ever had.

DiarmaidBHK (3371) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 2, 2012
Draft at Michaels Bistro. Pours golden with a thin white head. There’s a slight hint of pine on the nose. Nice creaminess on the tongue. The finish has nice amounts of hop flavor. It’s sort of a citrus tang. Nice version of the style.

12/30/11. 16oz can courtesy watson1977! Hazy orange pour with a nice khaki head that sticks for quite awhile and laces in soapy rings. Pretty solid aroma of citrusy, lemony hops with grass and a bit of seltzer water. Sweet, almost fruity flavor at first that shows watermelon, grass, and lingering dry hoppiness. There’s also a small aspect of metal and what hits me as alcohol in the flavor, though that doesn’t seem right. Either way, a tasty surprise!

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - DEC 30, 2011
16 oz can. pours a brilliant orange tinged amber with an eggshell head. Sweet, light caramel and orange nose. Nice, light bready flavor, light tangerine/orange zest late. Finish is clean and slightly dry. Excellent sessionable sipper.
