Sixpoint Sweet Action
From Sixpoint – …Through all of the madness emerged an undefinable beer called Sweet Action; a beer that your brain cannot categorize but instead speaks directly to your palate. Our senses and intuition sometimes trump rational thought. It’s Mad Science.
Guest Review by Eric Sturniolo – Sixpoint Brewing – Sweet Action – 12 oz. can poured into a tulip glass. 5.2% abv.
Appearance: Pours a dark, cloudy orange with a thick off-white head.
Aroma: Light aroma of an orange creamsicle with a bit of hops and mango.
Taste: A sweet cream and zesty orange start with a finish of grass and pine. Fruity, slightly bitter aftertaste. Almost no malt anywhere.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, silky, and fizzy.
Overall: This is Sixpoint’s most popular beer for a reason. It’s easily accessible, very drinkable, and totally delicious. A really nice balance of sweet and bitter. As Sixpoint says, it’s hard to put this in a category. Sixpoint calls it a cream ale. I’d call it a mix between a cream ale and a pale ale.
