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.

Aroma of nice citrus and floral. Pours orange with a big sudsy head. Taste is light but hoppy with the same citrus and resin with just a hint of brown sugar. Delicious and sessionable.

Apricot pour with a nice off white head. Amazingly fresh citrus hop aroma, this is one of the better aromas from an APA that Ive experienced. The flavor is a very well balanced mix of the hops with a buttery bread finish. Smooth body with light carbonation, this is the epitome of a session beer.

Enjoyable pale ale. Almost like a light IPA. Very strong citrus and maybe kiwi on the nose. Definitely on the fruit side of the hop spectrum. Pretty amberish color. Taste matches the aroma and its got a little kick. No bitterness and lots of fruit forward flavors. Its chewy on the sip and a bit sticky on the tongue. Has somewhat of a hoppy aftertaste. Not overly bitter. Overall, a nice beer and one you can drink on a regular basis...quickly. As some would say, a session beer.

Clear gold very light copper.Short head qwickly diminished to a ring with spitty lacing. Aroma is nice with toasty malt -slight sweet cereal grain,fresh dankish hops kinda floral and spicey herbal and or earthy.Slightly buttery. Taste hits you with a toasty bready somewhat foamy mouthfeel,a spicy sting of hops with smooth light carmel toasted malt some mildly grassy hops finishing clean somewhat citrusy with rhindyness gingery pepper.Fairly sessionable with some maltiness and medium/full bodied but clean with hop astringency making it seem somewhat dry at the end. Pretty nice kindof wheaty or bready/toasty malt taste but hoppy with slight fruit tones mainly citrusy.

Changed (462) - Ithaca, New York, USA - JUL 8, 2012
12 oz bottle from FLBC. Pours like an American pale ale, has enough hops to make it pretty much enjoyable. Went down in about 5 minutes on a 95* day, so Id say this is sessionable. A Victory indeed.

Aroma is strong, piney hops and a hint of malts. The flavor is citrus/grapefruit, mild fruit undertones, malts and a lingering, bitter finish.

Wasnt sure why they decided to bottle Coors Light under a different label. This is something to truly avoid.
