COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
To commemorate an important milestone in Anchor Brewings 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.

On tap at Tylers Carrboro. Slightly dusky deep orange pour, with a thick pillow of a head. Nose was extremely pungent, and quite inviting - Im digging this hop varietal more and more. The beer was nice and dry, the mouthfeel smooth and creamy, with a bit of sweetness and a trace of musk in the finish. Good one for sure.

Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 23, 2010
Bottle. Pours light orangey copper with a medium, thick, frothy eggshell head that leaves a little sticky lacing. Aromas of funky papaya, spicy pine and citrus, slight pepper, and sweet guava. Bitter flavor with resinous pine, spicy grapefruit rind, caramel, and a little tropical fruit. Bitter, medium carbonation, dry finish. Nice tropical notes to this; good beer.

Crisp, Pale, and a good overall ale. Pours a see through yellow color with lite carb and good white lacing head. Taste is very hoppy. Good overall ale.

Beerman6686 (6595) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 22, 2010
This poured a darker yellow to light orange with an off white head. Aroma was almost all skunk and absolutely nothing else. Flavor was light bitter and citrus hops with some buttery caramel malt. Not too great but would do in a pinch.

BeerCast_Rich (1906) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 22, 2010
[355ml bottle, Appellation Wines, Edinburgh] Very hazy off-gold amber colour. Thin head with little rising carbonation. Lacing. Aromas are piney hops cold from the fridge the taste is deadened, but at the beer warms the alcohol flavours come out and become more prevalent. Bitter finish from the hops. Prime taste is grapefruit, with that distinctive white wine quality from the Nelson Sauvin. Pretty good [21102010]

KyotoLefty (9990) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 21, 2010
Clean medium gold color with a fine head. Sharp hop aroma: citrus, grass, metal. Very light on the malts. Flavor starts with light caramel and bready malts, then goes to grassy, metallic hops with strong citrus. Bitter through to the finish where there is also a lingering grainy character. Earthy malts work well with pepper hops. Light, crisp, refreshing and quite bitter. Good, original hopping, not extremely exciting, but good drinking.

Maybe it was the bottle art, but Im sure it was the honeyed malt and wonderful hop crispness that made me really love this beer. The flavor combination put my in mind of a more-effervescent Anderson Valley Pale Ale. Very, very nice.

Rusty (1547) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - OCT 19, 2010
Pours a nice golden color with a large white head. Aroma is citrus, grass, lemon, hops. Flavor is bitter citrusy lemony hops, biscuit, malts, nicely balanced with a pleasant bitter crisp finish. I dig it.

Arayaga2 (2183) - portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 19, 2010
Hazy yellow, with big, stable white head. Aroma is honey and lemon, and bit of grape. The Nelson Sauvins charm in the flavor, with a nice biscuity aftertaste, and light, grape in its wake. Vigorous carbonation cleans the palate. $2/12oz

A very tasty and drinkable deep golden hoppy brew! Light spicy fruit aromas and flavors. Good malt sweetness and nice hoppy balance. Not overly sticky or floral, more on the fruity hop side. Bittering finish. Not bad at all.
