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.

Saeglopur (1728) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - SEP 23, 2014
Bottle from Bierkompass.de. Amber, clear body, with a medum, creamy, slightly yellow head. Aroma of flowers, citrus, tangerine, some ropical fruits, grass, herbs, some candy. Taste with about the same aromas. Mouthfeel is light, slick, with a moderate carbonation and it finishes medium bitter, slightly dry, with lemon zest, grass, slight pine and some sweet malts. Nice one. A lighter version of their HopDevil, also with lots of grassy notes. Refreshing and easy to drink, but overall nothing special.

tnkw01 (1724) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Bottle. Just an average tasting pale ale. Not all that great. Golden color. Some head. More hops then not but not the greatest.

beertholomeus (1723) - California, USA - JUL 22, 2014
Pours a crisp amber color with a white head. Hop, caramel, citrus, biscuit and malt aroma. Hop, citrus, pine, caramel, biscuit and malt flavors. Medium body and carbonation and decent bitterness. A clean caramel and hop finish.

DocJitsu (1708) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - APR 9, 2014
Pours a clear, classic golden color with a one-finger, creamy, antique white head. The head dissipates too quickly, or I would’ve scored its appearance a 4. A well, balanced malt/floral hop bouquet is noted. A relatively rich mouthfeel yields to some mild astringency late. There’s something peculiar lying a the flavor’s foundation that disrupts the malt and hop characters. Almost like petroleum jelly. Nearly flavorless, yet has a distinctive flavor. It’s not off putting. Just disrupts what would otherwise be the natural flavors of the ale. It takes on the hop character and bitterness of a session IPA, but with a smidgeon better malt backbone.

degbert (1705) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 20, 2011
Bottle. Pours a dark gold with a cream-colored, large-grained head. Nose is lime, ruby red grapefruit, and rosemary. Drinks astringent, with strong hops notes underpinned with some roast malt. Definite floral notes on the close, along with a clean finish. An excellent example of the style.

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.

Nephilium (1701) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - MAR 16, 2011
Mild aroma, with just a couple of hop notes, more of a caramel aroma. Pours a clear amber, with a dusting of head. Nice hop bite in the start with this beer, with a fairly short finish. This isn’t a bad beer, but there’s very little out of the ordinary about it. Solid and enjoyable, but there are better in the style that are available.

rbrazell (1698) - Florida, USA - JAN 22, 2012
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.
