Sixpoint Brewery
New York, United States

Style: American Blonde Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

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.

Weird skinny can poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a dark orange with a one-finger off white head that sticks around a while. Moderate lacing on the way down.

Aroma: Inviting but somewhat faint aromas of grass, hops, and some buttery toast.

Taste: This beer has a lot of flavor for a hybrid-style ale. Grass and hops are up front, and there's some tasty bitter sweetness in the background. Really nice flavor profile. Flavors get slightly more pronounced as it warms.

Mouthfeel: The body is really perfect and adds a lot to the appeal. It has a nice medium-grade heft, and is smooth and very drinkable.

Overall: Excellent sessionable beer. Would drink again. It sort of tastes like a cream ale crossed with a fairly hoppy American pale ale or golden ale. Whatever it is, it's great, and will remind you of why you love beer.
