Brewed by:
Sixpoint Brewery
New York, United States

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.

16 oz. Can

A: Pours hazy golden. Thin creamy tan head. Little retention but leaves very nice lacing.

S: Pretty clean with hints of sweet fruits and floral hops. Nice, but could be stronger.

T/M: Creamy, peachy, malty, sweet. Bitter floral hops. Smooth, medium bodied with the
taste of melons.

O: Bitter and sweet. Well balanced. Smooth and easy to drink. Nothing too complex,
which makes for one of the better if not the best Cream Ales around.

Cloudy golden colour with a small, creamy, light tan head. Nice.

Interesting combo of light, sweet malt and mild citrussy hop. Like a light pale ale to my nose but some sweet, creamy elements come through too.

The palate moves around a little with a balance of sweet, creamy malt and then a light pop of C-hop. Interesting and well balanced.

Medium body with moderate carbonation. Fine.

A solid beer. The cream ale doesn't really come through for me as the hopping is quite high for that style but it works nicely on the whole.

Pours amber with a small head.
Nose shows caramel, sweet malt, soft peach and floral hops. A little light on.
Similar flavours - lightish but still tasty flavours. Some sweet caramel, a little floral and spicy hops.
Carbonation seems a bit full-on.
