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.

Bottle, Cave, Glasgow. Slightly hazy amber pour with a small white head. Fragrant grassy hop and citrus in the snout. Uncomplicated sweet malt and grassy hop flavour . A little on the thin side and teeters towards the average side of the tracks. Not my favourite Victory offering.

Very familiar piney/citrus taste. The aroma is at it tastes and is very aromatic. It’s a little on the bitter side. All in all, good pale ale.

Narnad (1458) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - FEB 12, 2014
Pours a cloudy orange color with a low, white head. Aroma has a strong citrus and pine nose with a mild amount of light sweet malt. Flavor has a pine/grassy start but moves into a tangerine citrus flavor later, followed by a light malty sweetness. The body is light with a low amount of carbonation and thin feeling. Overall an nice, simple beer.

Bricks (590) - Delaware, USA - FEB 7, 2014
Light orange with straw color. Outstanding aroma, hoppy floral essence. Beer is somewhat dry, somewhat bitter. Medium-strong hop on the flavor. Not bad.

laiti (5629) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 2, 2014
35,5 cl bottle @ Oluthuone Kuikka, enjoy by 18.12.2013. Aroma has caramel, resiny tones and some hay. Flavour is somewhat hoppy with grass, some fruity tones, caramel and hay. Like a mixture of fresh pils and pale ale. Refreshing and good, perhaps a bit stuffy though.

Taste is ok, citrus, bread, cereal, bitter on the tail end. Taste is ok, under carbonated in my opinion. Just an ok beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

garthicus (2662) - Dublin, IRELAND - JAN 28, 2014
On tap at the black sheep. Appearance: Golden orange, lots of visible carbonation, small white head. Aroma: catty and fruity, pineapple, mango, pine needle, smells ace! Flavour: lovely cattiness at first making way to tropical fruit and a good malty backbone. Great long pine needle finish. Mmm

RichardGretton (4240) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2014
Bottle. Amber beer with a good head. The aroma is mildly hopped, and the flavour is fairly well hopped and bitter with quite a deep finish. Overall a fairly average pale ale style beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a clear orange. Citrus forward with notes of grapefruit and grass. Other aroma consists of bread and cereal. Great session beer.

NeoHippie2 (978) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 20, 2014
Golden/amber pour with a small white head. Earthy hop aromas with notes of pine and grass. Flavor is dry and hop forward. Decent brew but not as complex as others that I have had.
