Sixpoint Brewery
New York, United States
sixpoint.com

Style: American Blonde Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

Availability: Year-round

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.

Had this one on draft at a local bar....great aroma, bronze, slightly cloudy appearance with a big foamy head with a crisp hoppy flavor and smooth finish. I liked this one a lot...

I hadn’t had a Sweet Action in some time, and it beckoned. Billed as a cream ale, this 5% session beer delivers a malty, bready note while the hops dance tantalizingly around the perimeter. Carbonation is spot on and it tastes as good as it looks. Not as hoppy as an IPA, of course, and a tad lighter than a lager. As I said, it beckoned., and I’m glad I answered the call. You will be, too.

Can dated June 17th 2017 - Poured into an English pub glass - I received this sample from Sixpoint for review

L - Pours a clear golden amber color, foamy off-white 1 finger head that lingers for a few minutes before circling the glass. thin lacing as it goes down.

S - Upfront bready malt, hops and a faint sweetness.

T - Light bitter hops with a solid malt backbone.

F - Medium bodied, great carbonation.

O - I don't have a lot of experience with cream ales, however of the ones I've had this holds its own. I very much enjoyed the hop character, and the easy drinking quality of this beer.

12oz can into a pint glass

L: Pours a clear copper, with a 1-finger head that lingers a bit. Average lacing.

S: A balanced aroma of hops, bread, & malts.

T/F: Like the nose, the flavor is a nicely balanced mix of light hops, bread and malts. A little sweet up front, but not too much, and just a little bitterness at the end. Overall, very smooth. Good carbonation and a medium body.

O: Nice beer. Feels a bit like a Pale Ale. A good choice for something lighter than an IPA, but not as light as a lager.
