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.

12oz bottle. The beer pours a gold color, foamy white head. Aroma slightly grassy, grains, touch of hops. Flavor is a light, session beer, touch of bitterness.

TeamTrappist (830) - jericho, New York, USA - SEP 4, 2010
Bottle. Poured a light golden amber with a thin fluffy head. Nose is peppery and hoppy. For a pale ale this has quite a bit of body. Definitely a unique and distinct flavor. Very dry and bitter. Crisp flavor. Similar to a German styled beer.

bobman006 (326) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 2, 2010
Bottle. Golden with pretty Anchor (TM) head. Aromas of grain, grass, pine, citrus, honey, soft cheese. Flavors of grain, honey, pine, spice, cantaloupe, lime, grapefruit. Very hoppy. Medium body with soapy mouthfeel and lively/moderate tight carbonation. Hops offended me at first sip but I think we are friends now.

Light floral hop aroma. Cloudy golden color with a large white head. Sweet citrus beginning with a light bitter finish.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - SEP 1, 2010
Misty gold, nice head and lacing. The nose is spicy and mild with a touch of hops and a snappy malt note. Clean and fresh with a subtle body and mouthfeel. A little mild for me, but good.

malrubius (1811) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - SEP 1, 2010
I wish I could write just a one word review: "Meh." Golden with small head and lace. Very mild hoppy honey aroma. Peach apricot sweet fruity tartness with mild lingering fruity fruit peel bitterness. I’m astonished that this is supposed to feature the same hop as the absolutely amazing Alpine Nelson.

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 31, 2010
(sample at Sun Devil). Slightly hazy with white head. Aroma is of spice and banana-almost hefeweizen. However, taste is bitter like the pith from a lemon peel. Light bodied with thin texture. This beer had more flavor than I thought, but not too exciting.

egajdzis (5380) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 31, 2010
Lightly hazy golden color with a small, white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of toast, toffee, floral hops, citrus, and grass. Taste of toast, toffee, citrus, faint nelson, and a bitter finish.

TomDecapolis (4520) - Milton, Delaware, USA - AUG 31, 2010
Tap at Capones. Pours a hazy golden amber with a medium creamy off white lacing head. Aroma was very light. Some citrus and grape. Flavor was better. Nice hip flavor. Floral, citrusy and some white grape.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 31, 2010
Amber pour with a frothy white head. The aroma is subdued, but has some lightly roasted caramel malt and floral hopping. The flavors are pretty well balanced between the caramel sweetness and the slightly fruity hop bitterness, with it’s unusual hints of grapes. Decent, if uninspiring.
