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.

Poured a pretty, deeper gold with a decent head that retained nicely.

Typical citrus smell, but then plenty of bready malts and a surprising honey sweetness waft out of the glass. Plenty strong on the aroma.

The taste is quite well restrained and smooth. Enough citrus follows a malty initial taste to layer the flavors nicely. Just enough grassy and herbal, a touch of resin, and a pleasant bitterness.

An enjoyable beer, and I guess it has to be called something so it is a cream ale...it feels more pale ale with some cream ale elements, but OK. Regardless, it is an enjoyable brew. Recommended.

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.
