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 isnít anywhere near. Not that thereís anything wrong with that.

Vibrant amber pour with a decent white head. Pine, citrus, honey, grass and malt. Good carbonation and refreshing. Nice.

LtDan (1796) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - DEC 23, 2014
Appearance: Pours a dark, cloudy orange with a thick off-white head.

Aroma: Light aroma of an orange creamsicle with a bit of hops and mango.

Taste: A sweet cream and zesty orange start with a finish of grass and pine. Fruity, slightly bitter aftertaste. Almost no malt anywhere.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, silky, and fizzy.

Overall: This is Sixpointís most popular beer for a reason. Itís easily accessible, very drinkable, and totally delicious. A really nice balance of sweet and bitter. As Sixpoint says, itís hard to put this in a category. Sixpoint calls it a cream ale. Iíd call it a mix between a cream ale and a pale ale.

KenOath (8) - Surry Hills, AUSTRALIA - DEC 13, 2014 does not count
Honey nose with some light herbal & citrus aromas. Quite well balanced mid palate with malt backbone carrying a good hop payload. Long, softenning bitter finish. Not creamy for me, but a good amber/pale ale.

Shark_Pants (266) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 13, 2014
Bright orange with off-white head that quickly recedes. Smells of tangerine zest, grass, honey and bread. Taste as the smell suggests with a long dry finish. Light bodied. Not bad but not as good as some of Sixpointís other offerings.

Canned. Clear honey color. Small hear. Aroma is sweet, malts, honey, some hops and mild citrus. Flavor is malt forward. Sweet, honey, and like a little bit of resin. Nice. Decent mouthfeel as well.

12oz can-->snifter. Dark amber with one inch of short-lasting foamy head. Hoppy aroma of IPA. Tastes really hoppy and dry, almost like an IPA. Fruity pebbles aftertaste. Decent ale if you enjoy hops. If you are thirsty then chug this, it really hits the spot. Better in pint glass than snifter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
