I have to be honest, I tried this beer blind and did not see what exactly it was until I looked up the beer online. Apparently, it is a very complex cream ale, which I very much enjoyed. In western New York, Gennessee cornered the cream ale market and provides the only real option.
Sixpoint craft beers has taken a beer that older generations refer to as "screamers" and made it into a mature beer for a contemporary crowd. I got all the malty, buttery, and caramel notes that one expects in a cream ale with some surprising citrus elements accompanied by an acceptable appearance but lackluster liveliness in the beer and head.
Although in the hierarchy of beer cream ales do not rank highly, "Sweet Action" is a solid drinkable beer that goes well with unsophicated but beloved american fare (pizza, wings, brownies, bugers, and fries)

Poured sort of a shade darker than most of your big 30' pack lite beers. The white head lasted a good amount of time.
I could not pick up any particular aroma with this one. I knew it was low in hops, so I was trying to figure out what scent I would be getting. If anything, I had a slight hint of fall flowers.
The taste was clean and smooth. In fact it sort of rolled onto my tongue and then down my mouth without causing a lot of excitement..
A nice beer, no real negative comments , just that this is not my style of beer

A very even but bright hue meets the eye with an almost orange color. The head was a thick film of tight knit bubbles.
The aroma was stale but sweet with a cream like nose. Dry malt, dry grain and dry cream all meet the nose.
The flavor is far less creamy that one would expect but it has an assertive malt and an almost burnt character. The cream is evident, but not overwhelming. The malt is dry and charred but not stout charred, just stubborn.
This is very easy to drink but is a tinge dry on the tongue.
I want maybe a little more cream and sweet but this has a character all it own that made it worthwhile.
