Sixpoint Review #2 - Sweet Action
Posted Friday, July 15th, 2011 by Tip Top

Sixpoint Sweet ActionThis is my second review this week of a Sixpoint beer, following Bengali Tiger a couple days ago. 

An aggressive pour produces about a quarter inch head of with foam made up of tight bubbles.  After a minute, it's a thin film on the surface with a sturdy ring around the glass.  The body is a nice orange hue with a bit of a chill haze to it.

Aroma is what I guess I should have expected from the name of the beer.  Malty sweetness with definite honey notes.  Light grassy bitterness.

Flavor expands on the aroma.  Starts off with sweet honey-like malt.  That stays a bit, but gives way to a surprising amount of citrusy hop flavors.  Hops turn to grassy bitterness, which take a hold of my tongue for a little while.  There is just a touch of piney hopes and a good amount of spiciness.

Medium bodied with medium carbonation.  It's neither thin, nor big and velvety.  Not biting carbonation, but not the big bubbles either.  Right in between, it compliments the beer well.

Overall, this is quite a nice beer.  I see this described as a Cream Ale and a Blonde Ale, but I'm not sure that it is either.  Not that style matters, but I would think this fits best as an amber ale.  Super sessionable and easy to drink, you might find yourself wanting more than a four pack of this one.
