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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a think 2 finger head that dissipates into a thin film. Color of sunset gold. Plenty of lacing.

S: Citrus, piney hops, caramel.

T: Piney hop bitterness is front and center, but it's reigned in towards the end to finish mildly dry. An orange, wheaty, creaminess complements the profile and wraps up clean for the next sip.

O: Unique beer with a slightly different profile. I think it's a successful endeavor and executed well.

Pours a slightly hazy orange with a inch and a half white head that dissipated fairly quickly and left little lacing. Smells of citrus fruits, wheat and sweet malts. Tastes of sweet malts, wheat, caramel, bitter apricots, grapefruit, grapefruit peel, pine, grass and floral notes. On the light side of medium bodied, medium carbonation, dry finish.

Cloudy gold orange . Around a medium body as well as medium carbonation.
Aroma is grapefruit , pine, grassy, some malt and grain. Aroma isn't overpowering but still pleasant.
Taste is similar to aroma, bitter citrus peel and mild pine are the prominent flavors. Some grass and cereal/grain follow
Tastes a lot like a pale ale. It's good and worked well with food. Not too memorable but still a decent beer

Pours out a hazy orange color. The head is white with moderate retention. Lacing is minimal.

Very malty. You get some caramel, honey, bread, and light floral hops.

Again honey in the taste. A bit more bitter than anticipated. Its a very different blonde ale.

Medium bodied mouthfeel. Well carbonated. Its crisp.

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 & on to the review. Sweet Action does not taste much like a blonde ale to me but more like a strong west coast pale ale. 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. it's still worth a test out if you like this sort of thing. Cheers! C
