Quite an interesting beer. According the the menu at Half it is a cross between a pilsner, hefe, and pale ale and I think that is a dead on description. It started out being poured a nice golden yellow beer with a small white head. The smell was quite fruity and a bit juicey in character with just a faint whiff of hops. I was in no way prepared for the taste. It started off with the cleaness of a pilsner with just a slight hint of crisp hops lying underneath. Then therewas a twin assult of pale ale and hefe vying for my tastebud's attention. The hefe came at me with sweet honey like flavorswith just a slight bit of banana and much more sweet berry fruit flavors. The pale had a malty edge with some hops just adding a bit of bite at the end. Was very easy going down after getting over the initial shock of the flavor. Definitely worth the taste if just to see how different a seemingly simple beer can be.

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!!
