Notes / Commercial Description:
If you traced from 2004, you’d see that SWEET ACTION is a representation of our palates at any given point in time… it’s a vibe more so than it was ever one distinct formulation. This version, a juicy, blonde wheat ale, is the latest iteration in that story.

A: Light amber. Cloudy. Decent head and lace.
S: A weak apricot smell, with a back impression of rope
M: Bitter overtones, but thin overall
T: Blonde or ESB style? Tried to be both. This was from a new case sampler being sold while the rep was at the store. All I got from this one was wet rope flavor. Not much else.
O: This wasn't my favorite of the sampler. One of those "Yeah, I drank them because I had them" beers.

Golden blonde with white head.

Smell is piny and fruity.

Has a bold flavor with a smooth mouth feel. The pine and fruit from the smell come through quite a bit but there is also a mellow sweetness that smooths it out a bit.

As far as hoppy beers go, I like this one.

Poured into a Spieglau wheat beer glass. Looks golden/yellow,orange. Nice foamy white head about 1". Minimal lacing. Smells like muted citrus,earthy,slight pine. Tastes like a wheat beer. Mellow,subtle flavors. Some hop bite. Feels crisp with a dry finish. Overall this seems like a delicate beer. All the flavors and nuances are subtle. If I did not know this was a wheat beer I would think it bland. Not bad,worth trying.Might buy again. Actually very refreshing on this 90 degree day.

Sixpoint makes some of the best canned artwork in the New York area. They have been copied by other breweries without a doubt. Anyways, enough talk & to the review. Does not taste much like a blonde ale to me but more like a strong west coast pale ale to me. Personally, I don't like drinking strong tasting hoppy pale ales very often, so when I expect a blond ale then that is what I want the beer to taste like. Still worth a test out if you like this sort of thing. Cheers! C (75-79) score range

Pours an almost clear honey yellow with a thick white head that slowly recedes to a thin cap that leaves great lacing. The aroma is lemony sweet corn. The flavor starts a touch tart and has some grassy hop bitterness. Feel is soft and a bit watery. Overall not impressed with this offering.

12 ounce can poured into a pint glass

Pours a pale orange color with a white head, no retention, slight lacing and carbonation, slight haze. Soft notes of citrus, pine, and a herbal earthy note with a touch of stone fruit, light wheat note as well, touch of malts. Subtle flavors of citrus and pine, light bitterness, finish is slightly piney with a touch of malts, not picking up the wheat that I got from the nose. Mouthfeel is light bodied with grainy feel, finish is dry.

Not a big fan of American blond ales, this one is solid but I'd never pick this up again, drank this one because it came in a Sixpoint variety pack.

From a 12 oz can dated 14OCT2017. Pours a slightly cloudy Amber color with a nice head. Hoppy biscuit notes on the nose and palate, and a bitter finish. A pleasant beer.
