This is not what you may expect in the word sweet... it has a very nice amber color with nice foam, but does not last long. smell has a nice citrus to it. taste comes across for me a little dry as with the feel... it comes close to the name " Sweet Action"...so don't be afraid of the name. Nice beer all in all.

A slight citrus front that is followed by a cracker, toffee, nutty aftertaste, that puts a big old period on the end of the sip.

Taste Rating in Words: It's hop scotch with a big double footed stomp on the final hop.

Similar to a sweet lager with floral notes. Good, but not excellent.

Clear dark golden color with off-white head. Aroma is sweet and malty with a hint of caramel. Taste follows, slightly sweet and malty at first, more dry and bitter on the finish with lingering hop flavor. Medium body and carbonation. Overall it's a decent beer, resembles a sweeter APA.

Deep amber with about 1inch of head that is slow to fade. Smells sweet and hoppy. Balanced taste. Very smooth and refreshing.
