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- Sweet like cookie dough, a little grassy especially at first continues to linger though malt dominates. App. Deep orange, a little hazy, frothy off white head with some lacing left behind, moderate amount of retention. Taste- Malt flavor up front but not as sweet as aroma would sugest. Plenty of hop flavor mixed in with medium bitterness in the finish that doesn’t linger too long. Palte-Medium body, lively carbonation. Overall-I enjoyed this beer, especially the aroma. It would go nicely with a creme brulee.I might call this a cream soda ale but in no way to be confused with cream ale as our grandpas might know it.

Draft. Pours a fairly clear light amber color with a decent head. Aromas of oranges, grapefruit, honey, and pale malt. Taste is cloyingly sweet. Overpowering citrus and honey flavor. Ends with a mild bitterness. Not a fan of this. Was surprised when I looked it up and it was rated so high. Maybe I got a bad/old draft.

Poured out of a pint can. Cloudy golden with a nice sweet taste up front, and a slight bitter bite in the end.

Vignale (2576) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 20, 2012
Can at Tröls, Malmö. Bitter sweet sums it up pretty well for me. Sweet mandarines and bitter grapefruit paired with tones of honey. The sweetness does not disturb at all. Really drinkable.

jgb9348 (5121) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUL 19, 2012
Hazy amber and deep bronze coloured body with a thick, four centimetre tall tan head - absolutely beautiful. Aroma of pale malt, a touch of light hops, alcohol and a tiny bit of sugars. Light-bodied; Mild flavours all around with some nuts, some earth, some wheat, a bit of mash or spent grain, some sweetness and a tiny bit of earthy english hops. Aftertaste is just as mild as the flavour - with perhaps a bit of malt, but just about water in the palate. Overall, a pretty mild and flavourless beer - if you want that, then drink this, but otherwise, this is just lacking in flavour, depth, complexity and just taste. I sampled this 473mL can purchased from Liqour Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 22-April-2012 for US$2.25 sampled at home in Washington on 19-July-2012.

finol (2524) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 16, 2012
Can at Bishops Linnegatan. Pours a red shade of amber with a creamy head. A very smooth and nice beer with a light hint of citrus. The best in a rather dull style...

DSG (8610) - Tel Aviv, - JUL 10, 2012
Bottle sample at a tasting at Ariel’s place. Thanks Ariel. Clear amber with a white head. "Green" aroma of hops with pine needles, some flowers and marijuana notes. Flavor has sweetish malt and a mildly bitter hoppy finish. Medium-bodied. Nice and refreshing.

rodisian (66) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 9, 2012
Pretty good. It was indeed sweet then bitter - especially the first sip out of the can, a definite sweetness with very mild carbonation, which allowed the sweetness to come through. Its followed by enough bitterness to wipe away the sweet sensation, though. After a few sips, the flowery hop aroma and the drinking-from-a-can didn’t mix well, so poured into a glass, where the aroma fully came through. The sweet/better never became more than the sum of their parts, though. A good beer but I won’t be buying a 4pack anytime soon.

tmoreau (2986) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2012
On tap at the World of Beer in Naperville, IL., and shaker served with a hazed, amber color, average amount of off white, cream & bubbles head foam, and wavy lacing. The nose was citrus, hop cone-like scent, light resin, and some sweetness. Medium bodied, the flavor added fair malt, and moderate hop bitterness that was earthy, rind-like, and somewhat lingering. As the beer warmed toward the finish, this bitterness showed a less appealing abrasive side that made the ale a bit difficult to finish imo. A Pale Ale, maybe even an IPA, but not a Cream Ale.

Golden pour. Easy drinking but nothing special. Grassy wheat and smooth taste. Good beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
