To commemorate an important milestone in Anchor Brewing’s long history, a special ale seemed appropriate. Having found and experimented with a very rare and unusual hop variety called Nelson Sauvin, we knew that its unique character would impart a wonderful flavor and aroma to a pale ale brewed especially for the occasion: Humming Ale.

stoigniew (100) - Łęczna, POLAND - DEC 3, 2014
Aromat nie jest bardzo złożony - czuć owoce tropikalne, mandarynkę i intensywne chmielenie. W smaku delikatna kwaskowość na początku, ziołowo - sosnowe z odrobiną słodyczy w tle. Goryczka średnia - przyjemna i orzeźwiająca. Piwo generalnie bardzo lajtowe jak na 6% woltażu. Minusem są drobiny zawieszone przy dnie naczynia.

January 10th, 2013 - Anchor Brewing’s Steam Lager is a keystone in brewing history and culture, but what of their other brew lines? Are they like Bluemoon’s offshoots, disgracing an otherwise good beer with clumsily painted on flavors? Not so. The other Anchors aren’t spin-offs so much as they are new styles, though predictably light and airy, like the patriarch. The Humming Ale is a foamy beard, growing a great white head of thick foam over a semi-cloudy, copper liquid. The smell brings light straw, a nice sourdough tang and yeastiness, and a touch of that sweetness found in old-fashioned rolls. The palate is light and spritzy, masking the flavors until the bubbles pop and clear away. This reveals a slow ramping up of flavor to a funky and fresh biscuit flavor, which rolls and rides well into the aftertaste, complemented by some generic graininess, and a light but curious hop flavor. This is definitely light drinking, but more engaging than most sessionable beers thanks to that sour peal found in the funkier of the flavors.

Transfer from BA review on 11-2-12- Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance – The brew is served a deep golden color with a one finger white head. The head fades relatively quickly to leave only a very light level of lacing. Smell – The aroma is very light. There is a light bready aroma mixed with faint notes of a lemon, herbal and grassy smells. Taste – It starts out with a biscuit taste mixed with a light lemon flavor. As the taste advances, some floral tastes and a light pine flavor come to the tongue. These flavors seem to be lost relatively fast however due to flavors of an earthy and grapefruit nature coming in. These flavors take the taste to the end and leave bitter-biscuity flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is rather average in terms of creaminess and thickness with a carbonation level that is rather average as well. A decent feel for the moderate hop and bready flavors of the brew. Overall – It was a decent brew, although with the more bitter hop finish, the taste was slightly off at the end. Alright, but nothing I would really go for on any real occasion.
