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!

mcberko (13523) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 29, 2016
On tap at Darby’s, pours a hazy orange amber with a small off-white head. Aroma brings out quite a lot of resinous hops and light caramel malt - sure smells potent for a cream ale. Flavour is more malty, with caramel bready malt, some strange cardboardy notes, and fairly aggressive resins. A cream ale on steroids. Not the most pleasant but it’s certainly more interesting than most in this boring style.

On tap at Darby’s. Pours a hazy golden with a white head. Aroma is creamy, some fruity notes, slightly dirty. Similar taste. Not bad.

Torrefacto (1401) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUL 22, 2016
Ámbar limpio y espuma marfil. Aromas suaves de malta, ligero caramelo, cítrico. Cuerpo ligero, con inicio maltoso suave que da paso a un sabor cítrico breve y un final seco.

badgerben (4826) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUL 16, 2016
Copper color with a thin head. Aroma like orange marmalade. Moderate orange and caramel flavor. Fairly solid bitterness. Touch of barley. A bit of vegetal hop on the finish. Dry. Full body. Didn’t expect much going in, but this is really nice!

Idiosynkrasie (6193) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 14, 2016
355ml can. Barely clear amber colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Fruity hoppy aroma has a touch of red currant, a middle layer of artificial cherry, some caramel, a minimally leafy-herbal touch. Taste is fairly bitter hoppy, slightly fruity, minimally artificial and sugary notes of red fruit, red currant, cherry, minimally sweet caramel malty basis. Due to the low number of ratings in this style, I’m still in search of Cream Ale characteristics. This comes along as a cleaned and sweetened British Bitter.

Pours an amber body with a medium head. Nice hoppy aroma. Taste is a bit too bitter for a saison and the hops are too dominant.

venom666 (820) - Elche, SPAIN - JUL 5, 2016
Pours a clear amber color with medium white head. Citrusy aroma, bready, biscuity, malty and caramely. Taste has citrus, bread, sweet malts, grain and pine, with a medium bitter finish to it.

tennisjoel (1334) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - JUL 3, 2016
Amber red. Quite hoppy for the style. Flavors of floral and pine hops. Lightness and drinkability of a lager. Pretty decent, even if it crosses style boundaries almost into IPL territory.

If I had to place this style, I’d lean more toward altbier than cream ale. Nose reveals the drop hopping, somewhat floral, hint of citrus. Some toffee’d malts in there too. Flavor is more malt, sweetish and caramelly, but with a nice floral bitterness right there. Bitter wack rises at the semi-dry finish, very reminiscent of altbier. Lingering floral hops in the aftertaste. Dark amber, almost tea colored, modest head.
