COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The pure water we receive from the East Branch of the Brandywine Creek that begins its journey to us just under 14 miles from where we brew with it. We’ll be celebrating this water (insert your lite beer joke here) with our anniversary beer, Headwaters Pale Ale, due to be released February 15, 2011. Now, considering that beer is the product of four simple ingredients and the three other than water rely on water for their existence, we’ve had a fair amount of latitude in paying homage to water in our beer. So, we’ve played all of our cards deftly, bringing the hops, malt and yeast in harmony, with our great local water as the conductor in Headwaters Pale Ale.

mzaar (2701) - Varberg, SWEDEN - APR 26, 2016
Flaska. Guldfärgad med ett vitt skum. Dofter och smaker av citrus, malt, gräs och nektarin. Något stickig beska, men väl uppbackad av en len sötma.

Gyllengul öl med vitt skum. Doft av frukter, framförallt persika och citrus. I smaken tillkommer en gräsig beska.

Stew41 (1907) - Phuket, THAILAND - APR 6, 2016
Very good punch for a 5% PA. Hops are sharp and clean, think bitter cut grass, and good buzzy length. Lots of presence.

HoppyScallywag (286) - Butler, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 28, 2016
Interesting...starts with an unexpected amount of bitterness but is then relieved by sweet, roasted malts. The palate is left with just a light bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tselloufc88 (329) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2016
Can from beer gonzo, Coventry. Lemon, citrus aromas. Taste is herbal, lemon, over brewed earl grey tea. Very subtle. Quite refreshing. Nice to taste an American ale that is less aggressive but still tasty.

SpringsLicker (3413) - Tennessee, USA - MAR 14, 2016
Mostly clear gold with a white head. Citrusy resiny aroma. The flavor is well balanced, slightly bitter. Much less hop flavor than the aroma hinted at, but a decent Pale Ale.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4327) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 14, 2016
Victory Headwaters Pale Ale 5.2% A matte copper color with an off-white head of foam and a juicy hop bouquet of citrus, mango, papaya and possibly mint with a good malt base. Medium-light bodied with a crisp dry finish. It's got a well balanced flavor profile with good sweetness and a light bitter hop bite. Herbal, lemon and some tea like notes. A solidly satisfying Pale Ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

willisread (2209) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 12, 2016
Can from Tanakaya. Faint grassy hop nose with fruity esters and some malt aromas. Taste is well-balanced but boring. Quite malty mid palate with a dry, grassy hop finish. Maybe some light citrus. Fairly bitter. Pretty average.

ByTheirLimpin (269) - New York, USA - MAR 6, 2016
Bottle to pilsner. Honey golden in the glass. Head comes and goes. Nose is light hop wang. Palate is thin hops up front, body is a little lacking in the middle. Finish is clean.
