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.

Colore ambrato chiaro, carbonazione e schiuma moderate. Odore fruttato, floreale, agrumato. Nota dolce di malto, poi bell’amaro su toni agrumati, molto lungo e pungente. Molto dissetante e beverina.

The_Osprey (2937) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2015
Keg at Draft House. Orange, slight haze, sparkling, big foamy off-white head, thick lacing. Aroma is tangerine forward, quite a lot of rose. Body is medium, tingly carbonation, slightly foamy. Taste is dry and flowery, pungent caramel, straw, grapefruit, fairly bitter which offsets the caramel nicely. Dry tonic water finish. Rock solid pale ale.

Bottle to shaker glass, pours clear amber, one finger off white head. Some lacing and retention. Aroma of citrus fruits. Taste is nicely balanced sweet caramel malts and bitter citrusy hops. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, creamy mouth feel. Finishes slightly bitter. Tasting notes of caramel, light pine, mango, grapefruit, lemon peel and tree nuts. A very nice American Pale Ale!
