A. Hazy golden and yellow with a tint of caramel. Big foamy head after the pour from the can.
S. sweet biscuits, malts, floral, notes, hops present in the nose.
T. Nice snap of bitterness up front followed by Biscuity and Bready flavors. Finishes with a mellow blend of malty sweetness.
O. This brew definitely lived up to the balanced billing on the can. This is a need to try. Simply one of the most balanced brew you will have.

Pours clear amber with a ring of white bubbles. On the nose I get sweet, bready malt with tropical citrus and apples, plus an herbal hop presence. The taste follows the nose but has a wider array of fruit: blood orange, apple, strawberry, apricot, along with that same sweet bread malt. It doesn't taste like any cream ale I've ever had, nor does it fit into any known category, but man is it tasty. Finishes slightly bitter with a medium body and good level of carbonation.

355ml Can from Crystal Palace Wetherspoons, Glasgow (£2.49):
Caramel amber in colour with a thumb-sized, foamy white head that seems quite creamy once it settles. Some lacing & good retention.
Sweet malts & some subdued hops on the nose although the smell is definitely a very light on with only a few faint floral notes, some light caramel and even fainter still, some sweet fruits too.
Sweet with some malts that hint at caramel, some sweet fruits and a touch of bitterness coming through. There is some further caramel & biscuit flavours with a few lager hops.
Creamy but with a thinner body than I was expecting, it was probably light medium at best but it was exceptionally smooth and quite easy to drink with low carbonation and a wet finish.
Average but drinkable with the sweet and creamy feel being a highlight for me. The main problem was that both the taste & the smell seemed too light and basic for me. I'll stick with Bengali Tiger over this one every time.

I've always loved the Six Point branding. Good looking cans, basic beer stats along the bottom, 16 ounces. Poured into my nonic imperial pint glass. Here we go!
The beer is a dark golden hue with somewhat of a semi-filtered look. Some visible particles floating around around giving it a rustic, homebrew type of bravado. I like it. Downside is there is very little head that leaves no lacing...maybe I didn't clean my glass we'll enough.
The aroma is fairly basic. Seemingly equal parts hops and malt (which isn't necessarily a bad thing) along with some yeast.
The flavor is where Sweet Action shines. A fantastically balanced beer with a very interesting and strong apricot note. A very clean finish with a green hop finish. Delicious.
Mouthfeel is full for the style (cream ale? I suppose...) and luscious. Velvety and we'll crafted. A standout for a beer of sessionable strength.
Sweet Action is an old friend. A very good, session beer that defies genre. That's fine by me, as the result is a distinctly delicious brew.
