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 with a moderate pillowy head and lots of hop aroma. Before actually sampling this beer I would have thought that I poured a pilsner, it really has a great aroma. Pours a cloudy golden color, with a mild citrus flavor with a smooth almost creamy mouth feel and slight hop flavor.

"Purchased in a 4-pack for about $12 at Co-Op in Lebanon, NH. Poured into a Newcastle glass at 40 Degrees F A - Poured a single finger head which dissipated quickly. The color is a very deep tan color but yet still very light. It’s a very hazy beer which I attribute to the delicious dry hops. S - Caramel, sugar, almonds and orange peel. Very small citrus notes and very sweet. There’s a deep mahogany wood character to this. T - The caramel and orange peel are easy to pick up in the taste. There’s a more strong pine wood taste that’s coming through now. Burnt brown sugar..maybe something more bitter like onions is hitting as well but it’s nice. There’s a hint of malt in here as well. It lives up to the name ""sweet action"" very well. M - Light bodied and some really solid carbonation. The linger is pleasant and not overpowering. O - A very decent canned ale. I bet this beer would have been better day-of fresh but it’s a great beer overall."

16oz can. Pours a really cloudy orange with a huge fluffy beige head that leaves thick lacing on the sides and hangs around forever, being fed by a steady stream of bubbles from the bottom. Aroma is full of toasted bread and and floral, slightly herbal, hop notes. I get a little bit of citrus in the form of lemon zest and some creamy sweetness that I can’t really place specifically. Taste is crisp and bready up front with a light citrusy kick which transitions into some sweet caramel malts and creamy sweetness. The finish is bitter with some herbal hops. The mouthfeel is crisp and medium bodied for the style. This is one of the better cream ales I’ve had with more hops and a nice clean feel. Very, very drinkable.

16oz can and on tap as well. Pours out a darker orange hue, great carbonation. Aromas are slightly bitter, but malty at the same time. Palate is all over the place, some creamy textures up front, but it rips into an esb type bitterness towards the finish. A little rough around the edges from the can, but a hell of a lot smoother from the tap. Mixed feelings about this one, its maybe a bit too light, I expected something with a bit more weight.

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 (2574) - 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.

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.
