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!

The glib poetry on the side of the can sums it up pretty well; this beer is sweet and hoppy and all-around tasty. I prefer it on tap, especially locally in NYC, but it's pretty awesome that it comes in 16 oz cans in the store. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A: Pours hazy golden. Thin creamy tan head. Little retention but leaves very nice lacing. S: Pretty clean with hints of sweet fruits and floral hops. Nice, but could be stronger. T/M: Creamy, peachy, malty, sweet. Bitter floral hops. Smooth, medium bodied with the taste of melons. O: Bitter and sweet. Well balanced. Smooth and easy to drink. Nothing too complex, which makes for one of the better if not the best Cream Ales around. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: JUL 24, 2011 16 ounce can, best before Sept. 20, 2011. Pours hazy orange amber color with a 2 finger off white head with good retention that reduces to a thin lacing cap. Aromas of orange, grapefruit, pine and other light fruits. Nice hoppy aromas, a bit light as well. Taste of tons of light fruitiness; honey, orange, spices, breadiness, and a bit of apricot. Big sweetness in the front and on the finish, with a bit of bitterness as well. Medium carbonation and body. Extremely drinkable and smooth. No alcohol in the taste or finish as expected. This is my first cream ale, and it is outstanding, extremely drinkable and tasty as well.

Pour is a very dark amber to orange color with a short-lived beige head. Smell is fresh hops clean and light. Taste is fresh also, hoppy, clean, fruity and unlike a cream ale. Very nicely balanced and super drinkable. Full body and crisp. Awesome smooth and something to get again when I want drinkable, and flavorful.

VALIS (228) - Nashua, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 8, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2013 Strong smell of orange and tangerine. Fairly large carbonation, almost like an Orangina, but not that sweet. I like it well enough now in 20 degree weather with a blizzard bearing down, but it seems like a perfect match for spring and summer. *edit: Had another one a few weeks later and was even more impressed. One of the best session beers I know of. Eminently drinkable without being simple or watery.

williamherbert (1278) - Syracuse, New York, USA - JUL 19, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2012 The aroma is sweet tangerine citrus hops. Bready (English) malt base. Sweet pine resin. Toasted rye.The appearance is thick, hazy carrot orange. Big fluffy head, fizzy and disappears quick.The flavor is pine, lightly toasted caramel malts, followed by a citrus spice and rye. The spice if a Belgian ale. Almost has a finished wood quality.The palate is thick and creamy, with a dry finish. The can says it right: it?s well-balanced, beautifully so.

Can. Pours a slightly hazy golden orange with a massive super creamy head. Aroma is all sweet. Not a malty sweet but more of a candy sweet. Taste is very balanced with a small bitterness up front and a nice sweetness on the back. The middle is all sweet flavors. For what it is, great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I am impressed. I love it when a canned beer comes through. Darker pour than expected. What is good here is how fresh it seems. Very goot blend of malt and hops to give it a perfect blend of bitter/sweet! Now to find it consistantly!
