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.

ladnewton (1474) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2010
Draught at the Evening Star, Brighton on 3 July 2010. Gold with thin white head. Lightly hoppy, but rather metallic with citric overtone. Slightly disappointing.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUN 13, 2010
Serving: Bottle.
It pours a gold color with a foamy white head. The nose is very light. All I get from it is some grain notes. The flavor comes across as almost a very clean lager. The hop bitterness adds some depth, but this brew doesn’t seem very multidimensional. Light in body with soft carbonation and a medium finish. Overall it’s a decent session brew, but nothing worth seeking out.

Mora2000 (5856) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JUN 6, 2010
On tap at the Garland Flying Saucer location. The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma is bready malt with some citrus hop notes. The flavor is orange and grapefruit with a strong bready malt backbone. Medium bitterness. Light to medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A decent American Pale Ale but nothing special.

caesar (5321) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 16, 2010
Tap @ Beer Temple. Nelson Sauvin hops are really popular these days. And most of the times they make a decent beer out of it. This one fits in the category. Easy going APA.

jerohen (2031) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - MAY 15, 2010

NoiZe (2324) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - MAY 4, 2010
Tap @ Beertemple. Cloudy orange colored brew. Hoppy, sweet aroma. Flavor is hoppy and sweet too. Nice mild Sauvin hops.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 1, 2010
Draft at Fountainhead. Pours a hazy pale yellow. Nose is grapey and piney at the same time, some caramel as well. On taste, something isn’t quite right. I think there was too much NS used for late additions that pulls a lot of caramel flavor from the crystal malts. Too sweet. Not a fan.

jjuf1853 (1246) - Land O Lakes, Florida, USA - APR 28, 2010
Draft at Dunedin House of Beers. Pours a slightly hazy golden amber color. The aroma and flavor had a good bit of citrus, grapfruit and hops. Slightly dry aftertaste. Not bad.
