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.
Serving type: on-tap

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!!
