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.

strongpieman (1583) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - DEC 9, 2011
Draft. Clear, pale straw color. No head. Musty aroma. Taste is off, bitter but not right. I love strong hoppy beers... This is not for me.

Draught from Brouwerij Lane. Pours a heady golden hue. Hops aroma, mild pine and clean finish. Very refreshing.

On draft at Sharp Edge Brasserie. Poured light orange. Grassy, floral flavor. Crisp and sessionable.

graybabe (11) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 2, 2011
Has a very grassy aroma. Pours very nice with a great head. Is an incredible golden color that is very clear. Has a very wheaty flavor for a pale ale but it works nicely. Has a grassy hop flavor that balances well with the wheatiness. Has a medium body and is perfectly carbonated. This is not a typical pale ale but is very refreshing and kind of 1/2 wheat beer.

Lowe1983 (1377) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - NOV 28, 2011
Pours an amber color with an off-white head. Pretty strong aroma of citrus and pine hops and some caramel malts. Flavor wasn’t as strong as I was hoping. Citrus and pine hops up front with not much on the finish. A little disappointing.

HogTownHarry (6200) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - NOV 25, 2011
12oz bottle from Premier Gourmet. Clear amber-gold with a large-ish frothy white lasting head. Fairly light floral/grassy bitter aroma with background cereal - not sweet or harsh; simple and somewhat dry. Taste follows, more bitterness, some noticeable alcohol, not as grainy. Average body, chewy, a bit astringent, lightly carbonated, fairly long dry back-of-palate bitter finish. Decent.

milewide (1710) - 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 (11664) - 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 (961) - Bridgeport, 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.
