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.

On tap at fountainhead. Pour is a hazy golden witha frothy whit head. A grassy citric hop aroma. A nice crisp citric hop taste with a nice mild spiciness.. Not bad seasonal.

flatmatt (1176) - Northville, Michigan, USA - OCT 13, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Heavily floral hop aroma with pine resin tones and a sharp touch of spice. Flavor is very resinous and spicy with grape notes, biscuit, floral hops, and hints of citrus. Green grape comes through stronger toward the end of the glass. Quite a tasty pale ale.

20101012 12 oz bottle from State Line. I’m glad to see the Nelson hops used in a more basic beer where the citrus and bitterness can really be explored. I guess this would normally be the part where I discussed that exploration, but that’s just not happening today. Nice and tidy without the typical Anchor yeast profile. The body is lighter and carbonation is ample and aggressive, and I was actually to see that it was nearly six percent. Tangerine fruitiness lingers. Nice beer.

wyzzywyz22 (2037) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2010
Bottle from Corks of Cotham, Bristol. Poured a darkish gold colour with a medium sized, lingering white head. Nose was pleasantly hoppy with some nice pineapple notes. Very tidy balance to the flavour which had further citrus notes and mingled an unobtrusive level of resinous herby hop bitterness with some solid sweet malts. Crisp and clean with a gently lingering bitter finish. Really drinkable stuff.

Finhead (1243) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - OCT 11, 2010
A clear golden pour with frothy, white head. It has a sweet, hoppy citrus aroma with touches of bready malt. The medium body is bittersweet up front with a somewhat creamy texture. The finish slowly rises to a highly bitter level, more like an IPA.

Bottle: Pours hazy yellow with a small white head with good lacing. Nice citrus, grapefruit aroma. Nice fruity hoppy finish, cirtus and bitter balanced perfectly.
