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!

Not sure what to expect from this style. It seemed a little messy and unfinished and couldnít decide what it was. The aroma was faint and of malts with a little sweetness. It also reminded me of a pilsner. The color was like honey with a big foamy head. Some particulates as well. Heavier than average palate. Flavors of bready malts with a dry finish. Some hops bitterness but not necessarily balanced. Not an unpleasant beer just strange.

KeefOz (848) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JUL 23, 2014
Poured a clouded honey brown with an off-white collar that laced well. Carbonation moderate and fine. A few yeast particles settled out. Aroma at moderate level of pleasant sweetish citrus hops. Taste unusual with initially being a lingering semi-sweetness (fruit, citrus) then on to a tart bitterness with grapefruit flavour; becomes a bit earthy and with more grapefruit as warms. Light body. Smooth with bit of grapefruit on the finish. Quite unusual and worth a try.

Pours a murky caramel with a tiny white head. Aroma of faint citrus hops, wheat and grains. Taste of tangy bitter citrusy hops and grains.

ciaranc (794) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUL 17, 2014
Can at the three tun tavern. Orange amber, foamy white head. Summer fruits, resiny pine hops on the nose. Light in flavour, a touch watery maybe. Light carbonation, short enough finish.

In a can. Sparklingly summery beer, near-sessionable, and with lots of orangey sweetness. Sixpointís description promises bitter, but all I got here was sweet orange and not a lot of, say, orange peel. Still, nice.

Can from JD Wetherspoons at Merry Hill. Small head and slightly cloudy. Bitterness dominates with a lasting bitter finish. Not quite what I anticipated but stilll quite pleasant.

One of the selling points of Sixpoint beers is they come in little skinny cans which just look like energy drinks or something to a casual observer and thus you can drink them w/o being rudely interrupted by Chicago Transit Authority staff--not that I would ever do such a thing, mind you. In any case, the description on this stealthy CTA-ready can makes the beer sound like itís going to be some heavily malt centric Amber or something but itís actually more along the lines of an American Pale Ale. It is orange in color with a small white head that leaves behind little patches of lacing. The nose is very much focused on American hops, smells like pine w/ a slight savory character. Flavor is a touch sweet and the main thing I am noticing is a flavorful tea leaf astringent note and a touch lemon and mandarin orange from the hops. It is medium bodied but still feels pretty light on the palate thanks to moderate carbonation. It finishes w/ a resinous bitterness and some lingering sugary malt character. This definitely isnít a bad beer for drinking on the bus or train... I mean anywhere but the bus or train.

Pyobon (897) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 4, 2014
(On tap) Clear amber with some white head. Little aroma. Light body with plenty of fine bright carbonation. Very unusual taste. Part beer, part cream soda. However it isn't particularly sweet. There's some decent bitterness, some vinous notes, a little pepper and hints of butter. Different and enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
