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.

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.

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.
