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.

Ruikt lekker bloemig, zoals ik van een Pale Ale verwacht. Een hazy donker blonde kleur, dienik heb leren associëren met lekkere bieren. Al spreekt iets lichter me meer aan. Zachte, bloemige smaak met ingetogen semi-zure bite en nasmaak. Zeker niet de minste pale ale.

Dark blond colour. Flavour of floral and citrusy hops balanced well with a nice malty background.

Look: strong, dark orange, medium carbonation; forms a stable 2 fingers high crown which faded slowly and left nice rings after drinking;;

Smell: soft, kinda underwhelming light smell; can detect sweet malts and fruity, citrus hops;;

Taste: starts bitter then comes to a smooth and pleasant finish; soft citrus, grapefruit notes are found in the bitterness and stay with you;;

Moutfeel: pleasantly spicy but light carbonation feel, medium body, very easy to drink; refreshing, leaves smooth citrus bitterness;;

Overall: light, fruity, smooth bitterness, good brew, a nice drinkable APA

Bottle@ahven. Light coppery. Really floral, nice hoppy nose with a solid caramel backing. Fresh cut green citrus, bitter, dry. Good fruity ale. Has those sn malty chico flavours, but a bit fruitier.

Tomy63 (190) - Clermont-Ferrand, FRANCE - NOV 25, 2013
IPA assez classique, légère, facile à boire, amertume moyenne. Nez sur les agrumes, les fruits exotiques (litchi, pamplemousse), le raisin blanc. Quelques notes de résine en bouche. Longueur moyenne. Très bien fait même si ce n’est pas très complexe.

Tap@ De Klep. Donkergeel/oranje kleur, licht troebel, mooie kraag. Ruikt lichtrokerig en lichtbedorven als een saison. Smaakt ook zo met wat citrusfruittonen. Vrij bitter en niet zoveel body.

Peach, pear, fruity hops aromas. Fruity malt flavor, tropical, mild bitter finish. Enjoyable fruity ale, very smooth, almost a bit too smooth/one-dimensional.
