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.

Very pretty orange/brown color. Smell is of piney hops. Taste is a good balance of hops and malts, not to bitter or sweet. Overall a pretty good beer.

tricksta_p (630) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - APR 9, 2014
Aroma of light malts, tropical fruits, citrus, honey, a little caramel, light aromatic hops. Flavour is light malty sweetness with a medium bitter finish. Everything about this beer is rather ’light’. It’s an easy-going refreshing APA.

355 ml bottle from The Garden Jiyugaoka. Pours nice golden, slightly hazy with a staying white head - that leaves also a nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is the best part of this beer - it has fresh tropical fruits, some morning forest freshness above melon aromas. Taste is fruity at first but then bitter - and maybe even too bitter - hops hit the tongue and the longer and bitter aftertaste ensues. I would like this beer even better if I had a few more seconds to enjoy the first sip before the bitterness covers everything. Overall, for this price - 178 yen - incredible bargain for a very nice beer.

MarkoNm (236) - SLOVENIA - MAR 28, 2014
Pours a dark golden, slightly orangey color, and a small white head which quickly disappears. The aroma is my favourite, although slightly weaker than I’m used to - citrusy hops dominate the smell. The taste starts neutral with a slight bitterness, slightly fruity, and finishes with a strong spicy taste, which also stays in the aftertaste. Very nice ale, although I have a feeling, nothing really extra rememberful.

Kita (861) - Koper, SLOVENIA - FEB 27, 2014
Bottle, 0.355l. Clear deep golden color with small frothy off-white head, fair lacing and sparkling appearance. Excellent aroma of citrus, pine and tropical fruits. Taste starts moderate sweet toasted malty, follows by refreshing grainy and citric acidity, crispy mouthfeel with heavy bitter finish and long aftertaste. Full body, slick texture and lively carbonation in palate. Rich, smooth and refreshing brew...

Very good proportions between malt and bitter taste. Adorable aroma of Cascade connoting tropical fruits.

Saeglopur (156) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JAN 26, 2014
Bottle from saveur-biere.com. Golden, slightly amber, clear body, with a creamy, frothy, white head, that leaves a lot of lacing. Interesting, fresh aroma of lemongrass, white wine, honey, hay, candy. Taste of grass, honey, citrus, candy, white wine. Mouthfeel is medium, oily to creamy, with a lively carbonation and finishes with grass, citrus and some candy and a pretty long bitterness and dryness. Very interesting, unique and greatly balanced Pale Ale, that samples the Nelson Sauvin hop variety very well! Pretty underrated in my opinion, propably because it is quite different to other Pale Ales and hence not for everyone’s taste.

danielyabu (1087) - União da Vitória, BRAZIL - JAN 26, 2014
rocky creamy frothy huge offwhite head. excellent lacing. mostly lasting. clear average yellow body. aroma: caramel, moderate hoppy, black tea and skunk. if: moderate sweet light bitter. ff: light sweet heavy bitter and salty; long duration. palate: medium body, watery/oily texture, lively carbonation, metallic finish. Achava que era lenda ter cheiro de gambá no formulário, mas tem uma primeira vez pra tudo. Ele bloqueia qualquer outro cheiro fora o de lúpulo e chá. Dulçor caramelado. Amargor lupulado diferenciado, gredoso. Não carregam o estranho aroma para si, muito pelo contrário, o sabor é muito peculiar. Toques de chá (dulçor) envolvem o paladar de cima a baixo também. Toques salgados aparecem no sabor final mais pra metade final da cerveja. 180 s

Beese (1099) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2014
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Poured a clear golden colour with a thin white head. Malty aroma with notes of honey and straw. Initial flavours were somewhat waxy with dried fruit and grass. Finish was very dry, but somewhat light with some corn and apricots.
