Sixpoint Sweet Action
Loving the world of cheap beer is like being strapped to a lump of trash circling a comet orbiting a distant moon: your passion isn’t going to matter much to anyone. Only when you break free of gravity will anyone notice.
Crazy as that is, Shane Welch of Sixpoint Brewery did that very thing: he just managed to make cream ale interesting. Cream ale is the kissing cousin to the American adjunct lager (think Budweisser), just with a different type of yeast. It’s cheap, it’s carbonated, it’ll get you drunk… eventually.
That makes this brew all the more fantastic. Sixpoint’s Sweet Action is a subtle brew. A balance between tight carbonation and rich malty creaminess. White pepper and peaches on the palate with a toasty edge and a pretty floral element. Finish with grapefruit and a yeasty note.
This beer shows a level of skill and passion that amazing to behold. Highly recommended, with a single caveat: there has been a certain amount of variation between cans. This is due to their contract brewery, and we are told this will be rectified in the near future.
