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.

Almost clear amber beer with a small pale cream coloured head. Palate is slightly dry with mild minerally carbonation. Dry malt with a touch of cream. Mellow hops. Mild orange peel. Finishes dry with moderate bitterness. Okay but I wonder if this is a little ’grey market’ aged tiredness.
