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!

Aroma is mildly sweet malts and slight hint of hops. The flavor is sweetish malts and hoppiness in the finish.

GL2814 (361) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 28, 2012
Poured from tap, the golden amber color is enhanced by the mild cream colored head. There is a mild hops taste, but a smooth finish. All in all a very balanced and tasty beer.

Can’t tell you how much I appreciate the innovation of pint-size cans, especially on this cream ale, where you just have to fill your glass to the top if you want to avoid any initial disappointment that there isn’t more to enjoy. Soft hops, grassy and sweet, with a milky malt. Unctuous on the tongue, refreshing and quenching. What a great effort.

DavoleBomb (1487) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 26, 2012
Poured into a perfect pint. 3.0 A: Moderately hazed dark orange brown color. Two and a half fingers of beige, frothy/foamy head. Retention is average and moderate amounts of randomly dispersed clumps of lacing are left behind. 3.5 S: Bready yeastiness is probably the strongest aspect of the nose. To follow, hops of the earthy, floral, and herbal variety manifest. Mildly sweet, mildly biscuity malts round this out. 3.0 T: Solid blending of the yeast, malt, and hops, but the end result doesn’t impress or discourage. Grainy malts with a moderate neutral malt sweetness. Mild bitterness with earth, herb, and flower hop flavor. Mild yeasty breadiness. Not bad, but run of the mill. 3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Light, pleasant creaminess. 3.0 D: Not a bad brew, but there’s enough similar, yet tastier ones out there to forget about this.

16 oz. can from Bert’s Better Beers. A nice example of an cream ale. Nice eye appeal in my footed pilsner glass. Gold with full, frothy head. Lots of retention. Lots more hops then I was expecting. However, the brewer’s description is spot on. Semi-sweet malt with a balanced hop. Creamy texture as it should have. It’s nice for the style.

Can. Cream ale? Bad pale ale it seems. Reddish and hazy, no head or lace. Funky but dead hop aroma. Flavor is fairly sweet with some spicy, herbal, and earthy hop notes followed by a strong metallic and dead yeast finnish. There is a cool creamy aspect in the later half of the palate. The mouth feel is awful...is cloying and gritty. I live in BK and pass on this every time I see it on tap. The only reason I’m drinking this now is to rate how bad a brewery they are and hopefully pop some of the hype bubble. It’s not as bad from the can as it is the tap though.

tone77 (256) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 21, 2012
Pours a light brownish color. Smell is very hoppy, this is a cream ale? Taste is also hop forward, a bit of malt. Overall a decent beer but not really to style.

daknole (9797) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 21, 2012
Yellow pour, white head. For a cream ale this is pretty damn good. Aroma has some typical corn notes, but I also get some nice caramel malt and very some earthy hops. Flavor is malty, caramel, malty flavor.

sherm1016 (1187) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 18, 2012
Tall Boy can from Discount Liquor Milwaukee. Pours a bright, copper color with a big white head and some lacing. Aroma is malty, toast, corn. Medium on the palate with creamy carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, bready, a little yeasty, a little bitter hops, with a clean bitter finish. Tasty.

Can poured into a snifter. Pours a cloudy amber color with a thin white head. Aromas of bready malt. Hops up front well balanced with sweetness. Mouthfeel lighter than I prefer.
