S- sweet smell from the malts stays in the nose as you drink
T- good balance of hops and maltiness
M- the beer is sweet at first but the aftertaste is of the how
O- overall a great beer

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.
