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.

12 fl oz. skinny can, with a best by date on the bottom of the can May 08, 2015 apparently. A new beer to me from Sixpoint, acquired as part of a mixed six pack at the local Binny's. BeerAdvocate identifies this beer as a 'cream ale' - not a style I am too familiar with, so I'm not entirely sure what to expect.

Poured into a Duvel tulip.

A - Pours a nice bronze orange colored body, not unlike an IPA with three fluffy fingers of frothy khaki tan foam. Lightly cloudy; maybe some very tiny sediment visible in the glass. Head has some very nice staying power and good creaminess.

S - The aroma is fairly light, but it hold lots of good citrus, lemon, rinds, orange, some soapiness / creaminess, herbal / grassy, lightly bready.

T - Taste follows the nose - bready biscuit malts, herbal / grassy, grapefruit, lemon, light pine resins.

M - The feel is crisp and clean, lightly sticky hops on the palate, but it is a mostly clean finish.

Overall, a nice ale from Sixpoint, almost more akin to a lightly hopped pale ale in my opinion / experience. Either way, it is a very nice reliable offering with a moderate 5.20% abv. I would have it again.

Sixpoint Sweet Action ---4/5.

On-tap at Bernie’s in Waukesha, WI. This pours a hazy, brown color with a slight beige head. The aroma is sweet with a hint of malt. The taste is slightly sweet and malty. Smooth and easy drinking. Very well made and delicious a nice little find at a bar, especially of draft.
