3.4/5 rDev -13%
Thanks to woodychandler for this one. Poured into nonic. Poured a lightly hazy orange-amber color with about a half-inch of off-white head that had good retention and very good lacing.
The aroma was mostly piney hops with just a bit of grain showing through. On the tongue the malt shows through stronger and the hops play a lesser role.
The body was good, crisp and clean, with a slightly sweet finish. Drinkability was good, ya good easily drink a few of these. Overall, a decent brew that would be in my regular rotation if it were local to me. Worth trying if you see it.

16 oz can poured into a Sierra Nevada pint.
5.2% ABV, 34 IBU, 12 SRM
A - A light haze forms over Sweet Action as carbonation streams from the nucleation point, through the gorgeous golden-copper color to the billowing off-white head. Whispy lace adorns the glass as the foam lowers.
S - Dry-hopped abundance suggests a bitter red ale right from the get-go, but Sweet Action backs it up with plenty of caramel and amber malt for a balancing base. Light citrus fruit is buried towards the back with earthy undertones.
T - Amber malts offer a dribble of caramel across a thick slice of toasted wheat bread before shifting to the hops that kick off the nose. A blend of varieties, nothing stands out among the dominant earthiness and subtle fruitiness the hops offer. Dried fruit and breadiness certainly balance well though, reminding of mixed jam.
M - Honey sweetness is quickly pushed aside by dry, toasted malt and abruptly moves into a nice dry hop bitterness. Sweet Action is well-balanced and very smooth on the tongue for a delicious-drinking beer.
O - An amalgam of styles, Sweet Action suggests an American Amber / Red Ale with it's abundantly hopped profile reminiscent of a more mild IPA with earthy notes and toasted malt finish. Quite well-balanced, they pull the beer of nicely, showcasing a blend of hops and malt for a drinkable ale!

On tap in apint glass at a local neighborhood pub. I went back to it a few times. Time to review.
A-Dark orange/golden color. Thin white head and a good bit of lacing. Rich looking.
S-spicey pepper, grass and wheat. Some floral hop, too.
T-peppery pale ale, wheat and sweet, but not malty sweetness. Just right. A bit of hop balance in those flavors.
M-Here comes the cream ale, crisp, cool, and refreshing. Good carbonation.
O-lots going on here, a simple idea yet a complex brew. Drinkable, flavorful, and not overporing. Just right to me.
