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.

milewide (1515) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - NOV 24, 2011
Strength is bitter after-taste. Clear blond color with modest head and body. Low ABV makes it a decent session brew.

Christian (11131) - Odense, DENMARK - NOV 20, 2011
RBESG August 2011, White Horse on Parsons Green. Golden with a small white head. Grainy and bready malt aroma with herbal hops. Sweetish grainy and grassy flavour

ryecatcher (795) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 16, 2011
A Gorgeous, floral-hopped pale ale. Clean finish, good mouth feel, lots of refreshing citrus and (dare I say) geranium on the palate. A top quality ale (and easily my favorite) from the solid brewery that is Victory. Akin to similar hopped brews such as Daisy Cutter and Gumball Head.

Bottle from craft beer outlet. Overall a really good pale ale. There’s not really anything else to say. Victory is awesome.

A very good pale ale. Smooth and mild with light hoppy sharp notes. Just really solid all around.

boxofrane (2127) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 5, 2011
Bottle. Pours golden with a thick white head.. plenty of carbonation action in the glass. Smells like your typical pale ale. This is a nice semi-hoppy little brew. Another solid offering from Victory.

blipp (6125) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - OCT 29, 2011
Draft. Pours amber with an off white head. Hoppy aroma, with catty, earthy, and light dankness. The flavor has earthy hops, some catty notes, marijuana, sweet malts, and toffee. Solid.

Voodoo (315) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 20, 2011
Pours a deep golden color with a fair head. A well built pale with heavy hop presence and a slight bitter aftertaste. Hops have that piney, floral notes of possibly Cascade. With a manageable alcohol content a quite refreshing pale.
