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.

Great beer for someone who wants something semi sweet with some bitterness at the end. Very crisp, surprisingly refreshing, and WAY TOO EASY TO DRINK. which in my book is a great thing. For my personal taste I felt that the brown sugar/caramel was just perfect , and the IBU isnt too high. Leaves a pleasant sweet taste and slowly goes away.

Pours a clear amber color topped by a small off-white head that dissolves to a broken layer. Nose is malty and sweet - earthy spice, raisins, light grapefruit citrus, and a bit of cardboard. Flavor seems less sweet, but it's not as smooth as I'd like. Cereal and caramel play off of a woody/grassy hop bitterness and a watery finish. Medium bodied and dry. Mediocre.

Great beer. Deep cooper color for a cream ale. Drinks smooth like a malt shake. Great taste and feel. A classic from Sixpoint.

Poured to a tulip glass.

A: The body copper-y with red and orange hues and it's very crystalline. The head is minimal but shows some good lacing in the sides of the glass.
S: The aroma is very earthy of resin, apples, and fresh hops.
T: The taste profiles are very sweet, maple syrup, resin, citrus, pineapple, apple. The malts in the back are very well balanced.
M: The body is medium. Carbonation is medium to high. Bitterness is medium to medium high. It's a very good cream ale for me.
O: Last August I had my first Sixpoint which was a bit disappointing but this cream ale is something indeed.

I have had this many times and it has always been rock solid. Early greatness from Sixpoint. Dark golden in color with creamy, wet head. Nose is faint noble hops and bread malt sweetness.

Broad, crisp bitterness carries this beer nicely through the aftertaste. Citrus hops are medium low in power but high in flavor. Well balanced as well, however the real talent is in the mellow smoothness in the texture and finish. As good a cream ale as I have found.

12oz skinny can.Poured out a hazy, amber color with a small beige head. Smelled sweet with a hint of malt. The taste is slightly sweet and malty with a grassy hop bitterness. Crisp and sharp.
