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.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance has a fairly clear burnt golden orange color body with a white one finger head. There was some light lacing that slid right on into the body. The smell had some light floral with just a touch spicy with underlying tropical notes. The taste was mild with a light bittersweet floral to spicy to grasp a light pine hovering over a some light toasty biscuit. There was a fairly decent lingering biscuit aftertaste that lead into a dry finish. On the palate, this one sat fairly light but also showed a decent aspect to make me think it could have sat at medium on the body. I’d say this was fairly sessionable and did have a decent carbonation to it. Overall, in my opinion, this is a good APA worthy of having again.

Bottle: Nearly clear, burnt golden body with a stark-white head; super chunky & nearly still sitting on top, lasting forever with lots of chunky lacing left behind. Aroma is a little floral, just a touch spicy with underlying tropical notes. mild tangerine, maybe a bit of white grape, & a notable dankness throughout. Taste is mild, but follows the aroma closely. A touch of pine, a bigger white grape taste that almost grows towards tart/vinous at times, but is held in check with herbal & mildly earthy undertones. Lingering white grape in the finish with a touch of white pepper spice. Mild malt foundation all around, a hint of toasty biscuit. I love this hop; it seems more tame in this beer than most, but this is a pretty tasty & super easy-drinker as a result.

Excalibur123 (244) - Soria, SPAIN - JUN 18, 2014
Vierte color amarillo oro, media capa de espuma que permanece una fina capa, aromas a malta, lúpulo, hierba y citronela, en boca entrada fuerte y con mucho amargor que se disipa al rato, cuerpo medio y carbónico ligero, cerveza compleja que deja un pos gusto largo y seco.

tricksta_p (1689) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - APR 9, 2014
Aroma of light malts, tropical fruits, citrus, honey, a little caramel, light aromatic hops. Flavour is light malty sweetness with a medium bitter finish. Everything about this beer is rather ’light’. It’s an easy-going refreshing APA.

355 ml bottle from The Garden Jiyugaoka. Pours nice golden, slightly hazy with a staying white head - that leaves also a nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is the best part of this beer - it has fresh tropical fruits, some morning forest freshness above melon aromas. Taste is fruity at first but then bitter - and maybe even too bitter - hops hit the tongue and the longer and bitter aftertaste ensues. I would like this beer even better if I had a few more seconds to enjoy the first sip before the bitterness covers everything. Overall, for this price - 178 yen - incredible bargain for a very nice beer.
