To commemorate an important milestone in Anchor Brewingís 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.

Iím always excited to see new stuff coming out of Anchor, but Iím not exactly sure why. Their brews tend to frustrate me--they are always creative and high quality, but thereís somehow something lacking in most cases. This though? Iím impressed. This is a straightforward, robust, flavorful pale ale; a little hop bite, sort of roasty flavor, but just a straight up tasty brew in a class that is almost totally devoid of character and "creativity" tends to make things worse aside from a few exceptional cases.

Pours 1/3 finger off-white head over a slightly hazy golden liquor. The bouquet is diminutive and floral. The liquor is also hoppy and floral with a touch of sweetness and yeastiness rounding out the profile. Humming--like Anchor Steam--shares qualities of a lager and an ale. It is hoppy, but not bitterly so. It is smooth like a lager, but not so smooth that you would mistake it for one. I will keep this in mind as a good session beer.

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 5, 2010
Unusual slightly hazy light brown color. Estery, yeasty aroma with earthy/mushroomy hops, some honey notes. Very British. Flavor is crisp, lightly sweet with more dissipating hoppy flavors, moderate yeast, some floral aspects. Quite bitter finish, prickly carbonation. Not a fan of the yeast used here or the hop, apparently.

mansquito (4932) - Nueva York, New York, USA - OCT 5, 2010
Key Food, Prospect Heights ($10.49): Pours a golden color with a frothy white head. British-like piny hops aroma leading me to the assumption that it as at least partly modeled on British style IPAs (the few that Iíve had). Quite hoppy and bitter with citrus notes throughout. Sessionable, but also very flavorful. A good, well-balanced brew.

basspro76 (426) - New York, USA - OCT 4, 2010
Drank from a pint glass poured out of the bottle. Nice hazy golden pour. Fresh floral citrus hop aroma. Taste is at first a light malt moutful that fades nicely into a refreshingly crisp hoppy finish. Solid pale ale

Hopper (827) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - OCT 4, 2010
$9.49/6 pack. Gabriels. San Antonio, TX. Golden orange beer with a medium size head. The aroma has its own kind of grain scent. It really reminds me of the Steam just a little bigger. The taste has a nice delicate citrus hop taste, pepper, with a low to medium bitterness in the end. This really is a balanced beer.
