3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample from can at the Strange Brew Tasting on 02/18/2012. Copper-colored with a medium off-white head that burns away steadily. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, grain and a bit of hops. Light body with flavors of grassy hops, grainy malt and fruit. The finish is short with a sweet malt aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can. Pours a slightly hazy golden orange with a massive super creamy head. Aroma is all sweet. Not a malty sweet but more of a candy sweet. Taste is very balanced with a small bitterness up front and a nice sweetness on the back. The middle is all sweet flavors. For what it is, great beer.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
"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. Itís 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. Thereís a deep mahogany wood character to this.
T - The caramel and orange peel are easy to pick up in the taste. Thereís a more strong pine wood taste thatís coming through now. Burnt brown sugar..maybe something more bitter like onions is hitting as well but itís nice. Thereís 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 itís a great beer overall."

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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 canít 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 Iíve had with more hops and a nice clean feel. Very, very drinkable.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
