Sixpoint Brewing Sweet Action pours to an orange/amber hue with a nose that emits fragrances such as pine, honey, some toffee, and some fruit. The head of foam on this beer is less than most and it doesn’t last long, even following a good pour.
The flavor profile of this beer is complex and interesting. It offers pine, honey, citrus, bread, and only a mild hop bitterness that is piney and not overpowering in any way. The taste is more toward the sweet side, but there is a good effort to balance the flavors and you will notice the sweet/bitter battle on your palate as you consume.
Sixpoint Brewing Sweet Action is an interesting beer and different from most others. It is classified as cream ale in some web sites and sources, but it is really more of a conglomerate of different styles like amber ale, cream ale, pale ale, and amber ale. This makes it a difficult beer to place, but certainly one that is satisfying overall, even if it does cause you to scratch your head more than once.
I had a tough time deciding exactly how this beer should be classified or rated, but my feelings and my rating improved with each sip. It is a little lighter than other craft brews, but it is still a very tasty beer in its own way and a good introductory beer for newer fans of craft beer products.

Beautiful if unexpected beer. I have learned great respect for Six Point. This Sweet Action only reinforces that opinion.
Pours a bit hazy with a warm orangy- caramel tint, warm and full bodies looking. Head sticks around for a bit, once that gets sipped away there's a sticky laciness that stays on the walls of the glass. From the tap into a standard pint glass.
Even minutes after the pour there's a nice tingle from the carbonation on the tongue.
Flavor is hoppy without being hopped up, very little malt and no cloying aftertaste or coating.
Without knowing any better, I'd call this a pale ale, but I'm learning more every day.
Long after the sip, there's a tiny explosion of orange on the sides and back of the tongue.
Even 2/3rds of the way through the pint, I'm not sure that I can find anything that would remind me of a cream ale.
I will be back for another!!
