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!

hainer (19) - New York, USA - JAN 6, 2012
Had it twice: cool to cold and in a stemmed pilsner glass, as recommended, and freezing cold and out of a can. The difference between the two was radical, not just incremental. Properly served, everything comes through: light but lively carbonation, thin but not too thin body, head the announces substance, an immediate taste of citrus that quickly mellows, receding to let the sharp bitters take over. Overall, very nicely balanced: even harmonious, as the label claims. If a cream ale is meant to taste close to a kolsh, though, this one isn’t anywhere near. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

Smells exactly like an IPA. Tastes exactly like a watery IPA. Has a nice orange aftertaste.

StueyD (1467) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2015
A mid reddish orange coloured beer with a thick off white head. Despite coming straight from the fridge, there’s a strong floral and grassy, hop aroma supported by a citrusy element in the background. Dry mouthfeel. The taste starts of bitter, floral, grassy and citrusy, this is then followed by a slightly smoother, toffee flavour that adds a boiled sweet element towards the end. The finish is prickly bitterness and a hint of boiled sweet. Can @ The Limes, Fakenham.

sturmthis (912) - Ohio, USA - AUG 16, 2015
12oz can. Gold color with one finger white head. Caramel and floral aroma. Very clean beer that is easy to drink, flavor isn’t major, but some sweetness and grapefruit. Decent.

gripweed57 (1000) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - AUG 7, 2015
12 ounce can. Amber orange with a moderate, rocky beige head. Subtle toasted malty nose. Some citrus hops, too. Flavor is soft and sweet with a salty caramel note. There is slight tanginess in the backdrop. Midtaste has citrus hops and resiny bitterness, again slight and subtle. Finish is dry and clings to the palate like a fingerprint to a clean window. A subtle ale with wonderful balance.

Tognetta (391) - Campinas, BRAZIL - AUG 2, 2015
Âmbar levemente turva, espuma bege de boa formação e média retenção. Aroma adocicado, lichia, lúpulo floral também presente. Paladar de amargor leve/médio, corpo leve e baixa carbonatação. Um pouco aguada, mas com boa drinkability. Aftertaste de baixa persistência, exceto pelo amargor um pouco mais longo. Boa, mas sem destaques extraordinários.
