COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hummingbird is a light lager or Hell (Helles) similar to those found throughout Bavaria. We use carefully selected Pilsner malt... then it is delicately hopped with imported Tettnang noble hops. Then we add a proprietary lager yeast strain which is not filtered out. Hummin’ Bird is slow cold aged for over one month resulting in a lush mouth feel.

Tap. Golden with small head. Mild lager with nice flavor. A little bit buttery corn maybe?

Garbageman (443) - Lexington, South Carolina, USA - FEB 7, 2013
From tap in Burlington. Pours hazy golden. Aroma was fresh hop, grain and bread. Taste followed with a bready malt base. Crisp and clean. Needs more hop bite to balance all that grainy taste.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 19, 2012
On draft at Pop’s in Durham. I wanted something light with my food, but I really don’t like regular Red Oak. Got over my fear and found this to be a pleasant, light beer. Subtle hop profile and not too corny. Great with a fried oyster salad.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 15, 2012
On tap at Porter’s, Raleigh. Decent looking beer, a deep golden pour with minimal carbonation. Smell is light fruit and yeast with the very faintest of hops. Body a bit oily, under-carbonated. Some diacetyl notable in the taste, prominent where the hops should be. Not good.

This one isn’t all that great. Pours golden with a moderate head. Is slightly skunky and just unappealing all around.

tkrjukoff (4020) - SWEDEN - JUN 11, 2012
Tap at Grey’s. Pours pale golden with a nice white head leaving some lacing. Aroma is grainy, some veggies, dry gras and bready. Flavor is crispy, a bit malty, has some fruityness, grassy and veggies. Quite watery and finishes shortlived with slight bitternes.
