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!

Dorwart (2382) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - DEC 9, 2011
Good sized bright white head of varying sized bubbles. Nice hoppy aroma with some mandarin oranges, fresh cut grass and some light malty notes. Color is a dark orange. Pretty thin body and palate with some sweet malts, more oranges, flowery bitterness and a soft mouthfeel. Rather creamy in the mouth. Guess that makes sense. An ok brew.

kramer (5063) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 8, 2011
16 oz can. Pours a little darker than expected for a Cream Ale, very dark gold under a nice two inch frothy off-white head. The nose is nicely hoppy with delicate floral hops, some light caramel maltiness below. The flavor is quite hoppy for the style as well, just a nice cleansing bitterness to lift the slightly sweet bready malt. Finishes with a lingering hoppiness. Light bodied and very drinkable with nice light fizzy carbonation. A pretty nice beer, simple and straight forward.

TheRealMGD (551) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - DEC 8, 2011
Tap @ DuMont Burger Aug í10. Cloudy orange pour with a short head which leaves a coarse lace. Medium body, pine and floral hop aromas, finely carbonated and a solid bread and caramel malt underpinning. A balanced ale with a smooth mouth feel. It’s spicy, complex and very sessionable. Another hit from Sixpoint!

Braudog (5876) - Glenville, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 20, 2011
Can. Orange-amber beer with a thin yet stoic blanket of foam. The aroma is sweet indeed -- This drinks with a musty essence, like wet hops. Makes me think of a rainy fall day in the forest. (#4358, 11/20/2011)

TheGB (515) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 8, 2011
Pours amber with a thick 1" head. Nice aroma of light malt, yeast, hops and some raisins. Light to medium palate with a smooth taste that is a bit creamy.

jethrodium (366) - Berkeley, California, USA - NOV 8, 2011
16 oz can courtesy of myspoonistoobig. Thanks Michael. Pours a cloudy copper amber with a small light tan head that has decent retention and leaves some light lacing. The aroma is caramel, some breadiness as well as some light citrus. The initial taste is sweet caramel, followed by some breadiness and some light grapefruit. Light bodied. Creamy mouthfeel. Moderate carbonation.

puboflyons (2193) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 5, 2011
From the 16 flo. oz. can stamped: Best Before 17Nov2011. It pours a medium amber with a slight haze and little to no head. A good dose of hops on the nose along with peaches and yeast. The body is above medium and creamy like i should be. Milly bitter hops and meaty fruits in the taste with a pleasant creaminess. Likeable.

LinusStick (2879) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 29, 2011
Meh...A so so beer, though I donít agree that this is a cream ale. Aroma was OK. Caramel malt with a hint of roastiness. Pour was a murky amber/light brown with a thin off white film for a head. Taste was a little disappointing. This beer is all malt driven. Notes of toffee and caramel are detectable but not very full or strong. Metallic aftertaste that is somewhat bitter, but not hoppy. Medium carbonation. Very average.

glennmastrange (2311) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - OCT 28, 2011
Can. Light nutty and caramel for the malt, moderate flowers and perfume for the hops, with wine, ginger and berries in the background. Head is small, fizzy, white with nolacing and is almost fully diminishing. Color is clear amber/orange. Flavor starts lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes with a hint of sweetness and lightly to moderately bitter. Palate is medium, watery with a lively carbonation. Itís was kind of said after smelling the complex and fruity aroma and the flavor just didnít hold up to it. Still a good drinker though.
