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.

obguthr (4903) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - APR 15, 2011
Orange and lime peel nose, moderate strength, with grassy hints. Clear amber, thin head. Watery and thin, no malt presence. Hop flavor is there but less strong than the aroma. Disappointing for such a reputable brewery.

Draft @ capones. Clear copper pour with some white head. Light spice, and earthy tones, aroma notes. Flavor has earthy, herbal and spice hop tones, nice session brew.

Cask at Get Real NY. Nice hoppy aroma, fruit and citrus, light bodied, bit of hoppy bitterness, easy drinking, solid session beer.

travita (4576) - Frisco, Texas, USA - APR 13, 2011
Coppper in color, hazy, light latte colored head. The smell is caramel, hops, fruits, and slight malts. The taste is the same. Not bad.

jzzbassman (1525) - Arlington, Texas, USA - APR 12, 2011
Bottle courtesy of Sloth. Pours a light amber with a small thick head. Aroma does not tell easily the true picture of the hoppy goodness, with light malt, biscuit, and grass. Flavor is the definition of a drinkable session, clean citrus forward hops.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2012 Hazy Yellow pours from 12oz bottle. Clean, crisp, hoppy, and twinged with citrus. Taste like an IPA to me because of its assertiveness. Excellent.

Pours very light amber. Big grape fruit on the nose. Citrus hope on nose with adequate malt to provide balance. Absolutely beautiful pale ale. Victory!

UPDATED: OCT 8, 2011 a clear but dark gold body, great bright white head, looks great... light dank and grass on the nose, I like it, however there is a slight skunk finish... taste is terrible, a skunky dank pale, so disappointing... pass on this had this again, much better and score reflects

ross (2128) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - APR 10, 2011
Bottle. Pours out a brownish orange color with a white head on it. Smell is hoppy and grassy with a little bit of citrus notes to it. Taste is sweet, refreshing, and kind of hoppy. An interesting beer, and certainly different from the old standby of SNPA. Good session beer, easy to drink, and for what it is, a good beer. I wish the grocery stores carried this one to through into my rotation.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - APR 10, 2011
Hazy amber with a thing off-white head. Aroma of floral, grassy and pungent hops with notes of pine, citrus and caramel. Taste is floral and vegetal with a mild bitter finish. Easy drinking enough with some light pine and citrus and light sweet malt.
