Got this in a trade and really am a huge fan of this cream ale.

Pours golden amber with minimal head and lacing into a pint glass.

Smell is malty with a whiff of piney hops and them vanilla cream.

Taste is just awesome as it welcomes with malty goodness and the vanilla caramel notes but has enough hops to give a slight crispness and bite to this ale.

Mouthfeel is luscious with the creaminess one would expect from the style.

Love this beer and hope to trade for more. Of the sixpoints this is my second favorite behind the crisp.

Very interesting.
Exceptionaly enjoyable on multiple fronts.
Crisp,smooth and yes,creamy.
Nice hop snap with a drenching silky finish.
Usually , when tasting a new brew that I have read about,
Especially a new style. I come through mildly unimpressed, if
not disappointed.
Not the case with Sweet Action.
This is what I hoped a cream ale would taste like, and more.
I only remember Genesse offering this style many years ago.
Sixpoint continues its meteoric rise on my
favorite breweries list. Thanks

Pours a clear, copper color. 1/4 inch head of a white color. Decent retention and decent lacing. Smells of sweet malt, slight caramel malt, slight earthy malt, hops, slight alcohol, and cream. Fits the style of a Cream Ale. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, slight pale malt, hint of caramel malt, hops, slight alcohol, slight cream, and a hint of yeast. Overall, good aroma, feel, body, and blend for a Cream Ale.

Orange/amber color, very nice frothy head.

Aroma is definitely citrus; very pleasant overall.

Taste follows the aroma; this one seems more like a pale ale or a "mild" IPA than a cream ale. Decent balance of sweet and bitter; very easy to drink if you don't mind the rather prominent citrus undertone.

A decent beer all in all; not something I'd go out of my way to obtain again, but very refreshing on a hot summer day.
