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.

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.

wazig licht gouden body met een compacte schuimkraag, in de neus stevige citrus en een vage toon van witte druif en knapperig mout, in de mond een zachte mix van rozijn en grapefruit en wat zwakker zoete biscuit en knapperig graan, een degelijke apa

JPDIPSO (6094) - Wauwatosa, USA - JUN 24, 2016
Golden color with a stable, moderate off-white head. Just a couple speckles of lace. Hops seem to dominate the aroma with grapefruit and bits of pine. Flavors scream Anchor Brewery. House flavor/yeast with a doughy malt flavor. Some mild apricot flavors. Finish is rather sharp with grapefruit zest and hint of resin. An interesting version of the original. 7/10

Bottle - Clear golden, orangeish colour with a decent frothy off-white head. Nose is grapefruit, pine, biscuit and toffee. Nice malty taste balancing the american hops. Medium body, lively carbonation and dry, hoppy finish. Nice american pale ale.

jamaty (2098) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 13, 2015
mbar, con 2-3 dedos de espuma. Brutal aroma frutal, con claro predominio de mango. En boca mantiene ese fuerte sabor frutal, algo dulzn para evolucionar hacia un final muy muy amargo, que perdura, y que minutos mas tarde sigue rememorando el regusto herbal y afrutado del lupulo. Todo ello con gran cuerpo. Diferente y estupenda.

335 ml bottle @ Konttori
Orange clear beer with white head. Aroma has honey, pineapple, flowers and glue. Flavor has honey, bitter caramel and flowers. Palate is medium full with quite strong carbonation. Finish has medium bitterness. Aftertaste has caramel, honey, grapefruit and pine. Too honeyish and flowery for me.
