COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

Sweet aroma, nice balance between malt and hops, both weak but nice., fruity...a little cloudy, a nice white head. Taste was sweet, fresh mouth, but a suprising dry aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tide (1636) - Espoo, FINLAND - NOV 7, 2013
Bottle at Black Door. Amber color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, hops, toast, pine, a bit metallic aroma and caramel. Bitter finish grapefruit and caramel. Decent APA, but there's something off putting in this beer.

Moscicki (129) - Tarnow, POLAND - OCT 27, 2013
Very good session ale. Pours moderate amber/brown with medium stable head. Aromas are mainly spruce, pine, some citric notes are present too. The american hops are present but not predominant however they overwhelm toasty and malty notes. Body is dry to medium with quite sour taste, bitterness is moderate which leaves a pleasant aftertaste. Good one.

Slightly hazy orange body with a thick off-white head. Good retention on it. Aroma is grassy, piney, with some citrus fruits. Taste is orange with hops. Not too bitter. Nice easy beer.

Acid303 (406) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - SEP 16, 2013
35.5cl bottle, served in Shaker. Pours orange with medium white frothy head (lasting), some lacing. The aroma is intense orange, yeast and hints of caramel, so good. The taste is quite citrusy and fruity, but the yeast is also present and very well integrated. The palate tends to be dry, but shows an incredible balance. Medium body, perfect carbonation. Really pleasant.
