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!

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - DEC 30, 2011
16 oz can. pours a brilliant orange tinged amber with an eggshell head. Sweet, light caramel and orange nose. Nice, light bready flavor, light tangerine/orange zest late. Finish is clean and slightly dry. Excellent sessionable sipper.

Goodgrief (1965) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - MAY 16, 2016
Amber pour, grainy aroma. Cereal, light fruit and caramel. Someone said lemongrass...I can see it. Nice full mouthfeel, coating on the tongue. Still zippy fruitiness. I liked it.

polo_marco (228) - milton, Vermont, USA - MAY 13, 2016
Smells of sweet malts oatmeal lemongrass and a touch Orange rind at the end. See through amber color. Taste starts off with slightly sweet malts followed by lemongrass a bit of Orange with a slightly bitter dry finish. Light body with sweet crisp carbonation. Not to many flavors in this brew but the ones that stand out I really enjoy this is a great summer beer. Nice work!

Quick3Beers (781) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 9, 2016
Pours an amber from a can. Tropical fruit and slight citrus notes in the nose, somewhat dank resinous flavor is added to the mix, very thin, not much malt backbone. Meh.

Douberd (4426) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - APR 24, 2016
(Sixpoint Sweet Action) Can 355 ml at home, served into a shaker, ABV 5.2%. Second cream ale. Deep orange colour on the body, mostly clear, with a tall but thin off-white head on top, with good retention. Aroma has citrus, grassy hops, tangerine. Taste has caramel malts, hops giving flavours of citrus, light orange peel, tangerine, nicely bitter on the finish. Medium body, good amount of carbonation. Very good.

basaywhat (155) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - APR 17, 2016
12 oz can. Hazy, burnt orange colored beer with a frothy, white head. Aromas of grassy hops. Tastes of grassy/floral hops, some toffee, and toasted malt. Slightly creamy mouthfeel. Bittersweet in the finish with some grapefruit/citrus notes. Hoppier than expected, more like an IPA than a cream ale in my opinion.

tekstr1der (340) - New Hampshire, USA - APR 15, 2016
Looking to try a good cream ale, and this isn’t it. Pours a nice clear copper wit h thin white top. Aroma hits with hops foremost when I was hoping for malt. Way too much hops in the flavor and aftertaste obscures what may be decent malt characteristics. Ultimately this is just a strange take on pale ale.

blueshockey24 (346) - Colorado, USA - APR 15, 2016
Can. Pours amber with off white head. Aroma is sweet and malty. Taste is thin, sweet malty with a little sweet hoppy finish. Easy drinker but forgettable.

Dervock (850) - AUSTRALIA - APR 1, 2016

12 oz signature Sixpoint can. Lighter clear golden pour with a thin fizz head. Surprised to see the cream ale tag here. Drinks more like a sweeter side pale. Hop sturdy and a refreshing, cool finish. Nice beer.
