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!

Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 24, 2011
Growler. Pours clear dark orange with a rising effervescent spiral of bubbles, and a large creamy light beige head. Aromas of sweet orangepeel, citrus, mild Belgian yeast, and grass. The flavor is mild lemon and orange, light tartness and bitter seeds, some Belgian yeast, and maybe some mango funk. Nearly creamy mouthfeel. One-dimensional, but pretty good. [750]

UPDATED: JUL 24, 2011 16 ounce can, best before Sept. 20, 2011. Pours hazy orange amber color with a 2 finger off white head with good retention that reduces to a thin lacing cap. Aromas of orange, grapefruit, pine and other light fruits. Nice hoppy aromas, a bit light as well. Taste of tons of light fruitiness; honey, orange, spices, breadiness, and a bit of apricot. Big sweetness in the front and on the finish, with a bit of bitterness as well. Medium carbonation and body. Extremely drinkable and smooth. No alcohol in the taste or finish as expected. This is my first cream ale, and it is outstanding, extremely drinkable and tasty as well.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2012 The aroma is sweet tangerine citrus hops. Bready (English) malt base. Sweet pine resin. Toasted rye.The appearance is thick, hazy carrot orange. Big fluffy head, fizzy and disappears quick.The flavor is pine, lightly toasted caramel malts, followed by a citrus spice and rye. The spice if a Belgian ale. Almost has a finished wood quality.The palate is thick and creamy, with a dry finish. The can says it right: it?s well-balanced, beautifully so.

BREWMUSKCLES (2339) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 15, 2011
hops. slaughterhouse, Earth and spice in this brew that has some appreciable sweetness...and spice. creamy,slick and frothy the brew seems a bit brown and dirty with full enough body and nice genuine hop character that is apparent but under intense competition. birch beer and root beer like the best i ever had like it. extra points for the brewers words on the can that harken the saying "that makes sense to me". $3.00 the 16OZ can in Manhattan the center of the Earth NYC. Ill tell you where when i buy it all!! sorry....a workin’ man.

DalzAle (2002) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - JUL 12, 2011
Can via trade. Clear orange pour, average carbonation and an aroma of sweet creamy orange hops. Flavor was also orangy hop oil and a finished with a slightly creamy mouthfeel. Really liked this, but didn’t really understand how this could be a cream ale (tasted more like an IPA)

Duhast500 (414) - Cumberland, Rhode Island, USA - JUL 11, 2011
Poured from a 1 pint can into a dimpled mug. The color is a cloudy dark orange with a finger of foamy white head that is some pretty quickly and does not leaves any thing behind. The smell is pretty hoppy at first with some citrus flavor and a touch of fresh cur grass. The taste is hoppy but sweetness that is hidden in the background with the hoppy green flavor. There is some buttery flavor that is there briefly but gone. The feel of this beer is a little crisp but dry as well. It goes down easy with a slight aftertaste that is nice.

arminjewell (7999) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 10, 2011
Pours clear orange with white head thanks to Greg, aroma has notes of pine, grass, some slight biscuit notes. Taste is nice pine and grass with biscuit and slight fruit, finishing slightly dry and bitter for sure. Its good, but not a cream ale.

[Can] shared by greg. Thanks! Pours clear gold with a smallish white head. Aroma is quite hoppy for a cream ale, caramel, fruity esters, grainy. Flavor is light hop, grain, light bitterness. Long finish. How is this a cream ale?

Pour is a light orange color deep a deep shade of gold. Nose is of some light spices. Taste is rather interestingly spicy, but like gingerbread. Smooth and refreshing, good beer.

Pours muddy light brown. small head. Really has some slight spicy and estery notes in the nose like a belgian ale. Flavor has some ginger bread characteristics. Pretty easy drinking beer but its not my style at all. Really glad to try this thanks to phillybeer7779
