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. Well 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, weve had a fair amount of latitude in paying homage to water in our beer. So, weve 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.

Pours an a nice clear amber color with some off white head and good lacing. The aroma has some great herbal hoppiness with a trace of malt which is very pleasant. This beer tastes very good with balance of herbal hops and slight maltiness. A very drinakble beer.

Good solid Pale Ale but, not what I"m used to from Victory. Its almost too clean for my tastes. Nice crisp start with a little malt and little hops. Fniishes with a nice citrus flavor. Very clean tasting Pale Ale. It feels like its missing something to my taste. That said - Im a Hop Devil fan so take it for what its worth. Solid Pale.

rxeight (1799) - Illinois, USA - FEB 28, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2012 Has a subtile hop aroma floral and piney. The taste starts off like a IPA but then switches to Pilsner. Strong Pilsner sawdust taste finish. I thought this was more of a hopped up pilsner. Was let down by this, I loved every other Victory Ive tried - Hop devil, Golden Monkey, and Storm King - this didnt stack up.

12oz bottle. hazy copper in appearance, generous white head. citrus and floral hops dominate the aroma with some hints of sweet malt mixed in. pretty hoppy for a pale ale but balanced out by the sweet malt flavor. nice lacing and good head retention throughout the duration of the glass. solid pale!

on tap at buckeye beer engine 19Feb2012, nose is mostly hoppy and the color of the beer makes me think there is more malt here, and tasting reveals exactly that, in true victory form they balance the hoppy nose out nicely with some malt back.. this would do nicely on a brisk spring day.

Oakes (13303) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 19, 2012
Amber, with a little bit of haze and not much head. The aroma has some peachy hops. Light malts back some peachy, fruity hops. Light, balanced and refreshing.

nice fresh hop aroma and taste at the first taste. light head. Like a good IPA without the heavy bitterness which is ummm like a good APA. Nice drinkable beer.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - FEB 7, 2012
Bottle from Fresh Market. Coppery gold with a stable loose white head. The aroma is clean and fresh, but not bright. Earthy and herbal with nutty golden malt undertones. Leaning towards a British pale ale in its being well balanced with some nice mushroom notes. Its good session stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 4, 2012
Pours dark golden with a thin wispy off-white head. Notes of sweet citrus, mandarin, bready toasted malt, crackers, caramel. Medium bodied, moderately resinous with lush carbonation. Quite nice.

Pours with a mild head. The hops were dominant in this beer, but it was refreshing.
