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.

Sample from bottle at Glunz beer Expo, Apr 5. Shows no bubbles, but a nice thin layer of foam up top, beer itself is clear, almost light as a pilsener. Pretty basic IPA smell (how can it be called an "American Pale Ale" if it uses New Zealand hops?). Very grassy hop taste, just a little bit of supportive malt, lightly toasted, so this is intended as a hop-forward beer. Good for hopheads, though. Goes down nicely. This was originally a one-off beer, but the Anchor rep told me there was such demand for it, it will be coming back into regular rotation.

Pours a hazy golden color with a frothy white head that leaves a good lace. The aroma is a nice biscuit with some melon and some resiny hop character. The flavor is nicely bitter lots of fruitiness, some melon and some citrus rind and just a wee bit of biscuit malt character showing through. On all accounts a very enjoyable beer.

Tasted on tap at the Celebrator Anniversary Party on 2/14/2010. This American Pale Ale pours a slightly hazy light gold color from the tap. The aroma is hoppy and yeasty, a touch sweet. A medium bodied American Pale Ale. The malts are cereal, fruity and sweet. The hops are grapefruity and citrusy. Bunch of citrus, orange and orange peel flavors. Nice hops, but a little lacking in malt. Still very drinkable. Would make a nice session ale on a warm spring or summer day. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

kidmartinek (4046) - austin, Texas, USA - MAR 15, 2010
Gummy, misty golden, small white head. Hoppy, grassy, aroma. All bitter hop taste, which is not bad considering the variety of hops used. Sharp bite, but not disagreeable. Bland/bitter overall. The best beer to mix with a miller lite.

Gold pour with a fizzy head. Pretty standard pale ale aroma and flavors. Light malt and citrus hops. Good, nothing special.

thebeertourist (5155) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 12, 2010
On tap at In de Wildeman. Hazy, pale golden with a small head. Hoppy aroma and flavours, hints of hay. Very dry indeed. Refreshing and uncompromisingly, almost harshly, bitter.

Wow what a dissapointment. Three os us had this last night at the Flying Saucer in Ft Worth. Pours a light hay color, almost like a lager. The smell? Well i compared it to Testors model glue. ugggg, Two of us didnt even finish it. Probably the second worst beer ive tasted this year. The other was a store bought IPA that turned out to be 2.5 years old and way past its lifetime. This is not a beer i would drink agian, even for free!
