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. Just an average tasting pale ale. Not all that great. Golden color. Some head. More hops then not but not the greatest.

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 10, 2012
Draft at The Happy Gnome. Pours clear honey-gold, thin white head, great lacing. Nose is tea-like, perfumed hops, very sweet malt, grass, earth. Flavours of mandarin and navel oranges; very mellow, grassy and sweet. Like a glass of melonade; a bit of spice to off-set the melon-rush. A really tasty little brew.

pour a amber orange with small white head with little lacing. Aroma is of toasty malts, bread, grass, pine, and some citrus. Taste is of toasty breaded malts, grass, pine, caramel, and some grapefruit citrus. Has a medium body with a oily mouthfeel and a semi dry, refreshing finish. overall, a nice pale ale that makes a great session ale in the summer.

Draft at Momo’s Tennessee street. Pours a pale clear gold and a sudsy white head. Nose is citrus fruit, pine hops, bready malts and light sweetness. Pine hops on the front end, light malt mid palate and finishing bitter. Clean drinking and crisp pale ale. Not bad.

Bottle. Shared with Pat. Poured clean copper. With good head and decent retention. Nose very oniony with sweet malt and light citrus aroma. Sweet malty taste with hops, onion and a little citrus coming through. Good mouth feel. I do not believe this bottle was that fresh. I’ve had this before with more floral aroma and taste.
