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!

Tasted from can at Standard market, Westmont. A darker gold color than the Crisp pils. Smell is much lighter, almost hard to find. But the taste more than makes up for it. Kind of citrusy, like a pale ale at first. Then a slight spicy note of wheat malts.

Drank from a twelve ounce can. Was intrigued to try a cream ale, but found this guy was hoppy. Makes sense it has wet hops, But I don’t categorize this as a cream ale...

Sampled from tap at ’Beertemple’ during Carnivale Brettanomyces 2016. Clear, golden amber with an off-white head. Sweetish, malty aroma of caramel, honey and some brown sugar. Sweetish, slightly bitter and malty taste of caramel, honey and some nuts, followed by a short, slightly bitter finish. Medium body, slightly creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Okay.

Tap @ Beer Temple (at Carnivale Brettanomyces 2016), with Bierkoning, Travlr, Zlotta, Kermis, Maakun, TheJvd, ShivanDragon and more. Clear golden to copper color. Off white head with some lacing. Aroma’s: grainish, fruity, along with some hop, resin retronasal. Flavor is moderate sweet, fruity. Body is rather thin. Finishes with a light bitterness. Not bad (for a cream ale).

Can at home. Aroma is sweetish toasted biscuity malt, resinous hops, touch of fruits. Flavour is light to moderate sweet and moderate to medium bitter. Body is medium. Hardly a smasher like the Sixpoint Crisp or Bengali, but pretty smooth and agreeable.
