16oz. can poured into a curved pint glass
A- a hazy goldenrod/orange color with a big, fluffy egg shell head with great retention and lacing
S- Big notes of peach, apricot and a little plum. Some floral/earthy hops and Sixpoints yeast is there as well.
T- Follows the smell, although a bit subdued. A bit of a citric hop bite, followed by a smooth mild malt with the hints of peach/apricot/plums. A touch of earthy/floral hops on the finish.
M- creamy medium bodied, with a tight carbonation that lightly dries on the finish.
O- Would be a good cadidate to break someone in from the world of macros to the world of craft beers. Certainly tasty, and something different.

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!!
Serving type: on-tap
