12oz can poured into a pint glass
A: Hazy orange with a one-finger head that settles to a fine lacing
S: Nothing in particular stands out but it's a nice blend of malt/hops/cream
T: Matches the nose. Malty, creamy with a refreshing hoppiness for the style, but no particulars stand out
M: Light-bodied but incredibly smooth and creamy
O: Rare that a beer's mouthfeel stands out as its best element but it certainly does here. Flavor-wise this is tasty yet average... but overall it's so refreshing I'll definitely grab more to sip while outside during the summer months

Thought it was like an APA at first, but this light bodied ale is deceivingly complex and tasty! Not sure what a cream ale is or what category to put this in, but it's pretty good. Sessionable and tasty, good summer beer.

The people looking for a cream ale are looking in the wrong place. Although BA id's this as a cream ale it is not. It's an ale as it says on the box but The dudes from Sixpoint say it themselves, "a beer that the brain cannot categorize but instead speaks directly to the pallet."
Sweet Action looks good, smell is nothing to rave about but not bad, but the taste! A little hop forward with an amazing honey like finish w just a little sweetness not a lot. Smooth and coating mouth feel. Perfect carbonation. Amazing beer! It's actually going to become my new everyday staple. Sixpoint makes phenomenal nectars!

Pours a cloudy copper with a minimal tan head. Not a lot of lacing.

Very light on the nose with floral hops and biscuity malts. Not too much going on here.

The taste is light, refreshing and everything you want in a Cream Ale: perfectly balanced caramelly malts and light, citrusy hops.

It feels light and creamy with a fair bit of carbonation. Very refreshing!

Overall, this is going to end up in the regular rotation at my house.

L- Pours a light amber color with a thin head. No lacing.
S- Sweet with a little malty smell.
T- Wow. Haven't had a lot of cream ales, and this is the best. Nice malty taste with a great hop finish that sticks around for a while.
F- very crisp and refreshing with just enough hop pop in the end.
O- Pleasantly surprised. Not big on cream ales but I like this one.
