In this blog, we are going back to New York City in the Brooklyn area. We are going to check out another beer from the young and upcoming brewery called Sixpoint Brewery. After talking about Blondes, Redheads, and Brunettes from Fireman’s Brew, it is time for some Sweet Action. If you read my earlier blog on their Apollo then you have an idea on this brewery, let us get into this great beer.
This beer has a nice copper color with next to no head to it. The smell is earthy to piney. The taste is a carbonation to citrus overload with a hoppy aftertaste. It is very drinkable beer. It ia full body with a ton of favor going on in it.
Here is a description from their can:
Ah love is bitter and sweet, but which is more sweet the bitterness or the sweetness, none has spoken it. Sweet Action is an idea; a concept. It is simple representation of what makes beer great – the marriage of barley and hops, in a harmonious balance of sweet and bitter.
Here is a description form their website (www.sixpoint.com):
Ah love is bitter and sweet, but which is more sweet…The original Sixpoint style- hard to define, but perhaps that’s why people love it. Part pale ale, part wheat, part cream ale- all Sweet Action.
In closing, this beer is different beer then what is out there and I have had in a long time. It has the best of three different worlds. The three worlds are part wheat, pale, and cream ale. I was pretty scary to try this beer because of the part wheat in it, which if you read my earlier blogs you know I am not a fan of wheat ales. I will try a beer at least three times before I draw my judgement on it. I am not going to say this is my favorite beer from this brewery or on the market because that would be a flat-out lie. I love their Resin, which I do need a write a blog on it, but I could see myself buying this beer here and there to enjoy it. This is a very good beer and I can see many beer drinkers enjoying it. I have been writing blogs on beers that are not in Chicago Market and I am happy that this brewery and their beers are available in Chicago. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
