3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Was informed about this one by my friend Bill Ellis. Great to see a new beer from Victory that is not > 8% alcohol. This one is extremely floral and fruity with a very crisp and slightly bitter palate. Color is extremely clear and has a unique shade of orange and gold hues. This beer is predominantly hoppy.

Clear orange pour with thin white head. Aroma of grassy, leafy hops, light caramel. Flavor is dry, strong, bitter. Lots of strong, leafy hops in this one. Very nice leafy grassy hop forward. Medium bodied, carbonation is on the low side. Pretty nice pale.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle, pale amber color with little head. Lacing prominent on sides of glass. Aroma is fresh and floral with some sweet citrus but not too overpowering with the hops. Taste is fairly bitter but really well balanced out by the sweetness. Palate is full with a crisp, fresh, aftertaste. As bitter as the taste is, the aftertaste is very smooth with no bitterness. Very enjoyable beer. Really lives up to its name with a clean, pure taste with tons of flavor.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Mild aroma, with just a couple of hop notes, more of a caramel aroma. Pours a clear amber, with a dusting of head. Nice hop bite in the start with this beer, with a fairly short finish. This isn’t a bad beer, but there’s very little out of the ordinary about it. Solid and enjoyable, but there are better in the style that are available.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I poured a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass...
The liquid was a light, copper, orange color with a thin, bubbly, white head that dissipated quickly. It smells amazing for a pale ale, there are hints of lime, grapefruit and sweet malt. The taste consists lemon and lime with a hint of bready sweet malt and a piney, hoppy aftertaste. The beer is light, with stinging carbonation and a slightly dry finish. Headwaters pale ale is highly drinkable, it’s perfect for a hop-head that wants to have a nice drinking session.

20110314 12oz bottle from State Line. Light amber color with small khaki head. Aroma is mildly citrus with grapefruit and dried orange rind, some slight fresh fennel, dandelion, light crackery malts. Light-medium body, grassy dryness, mineral hints, about zero sweetness. Really clean, easy quaff. Oh boy, a sixtel of this is definitely in my future.
