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 picked up at stateline... Great looking pale ale... Monster head, lots of lacing, copper/orange color. Average aroma of some hop and bready maltiness. Taste is a crisp clean hoppy pale ale.. Hops are light and fruity...slight grass and hay...Body of the lighter side... Overall: A nice pale ale. Good job Victory.

Bottle courtesy of Sloth. Pours a light amber with a small thick head. Aroma does not tell easily the true picture of the hoppy goodness, with light malt, biscuit, and grass. Flavor is the definition of a drinkable session, clean citrus forward hops.

jasonp (1573) - Ashburn, Virginia, USA - APR 23, 2011
Pours a copper/amber with a manilla head. Really nice mix of PacNW hops and herbal noble hops along with some toastiness. Flavor has notes of caramel, noble hops, grapefruiit/pine, lemon, grass and toasty malts. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Nothing you haven’t had before, but man, this is a pleasure to drink.

lamas (1570) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 5, 2011
Bottle. Best before: 07/15/11. A crystal clear amber pour with a two finger-thick beige head. A pleasantly pungent aroma of pine trees, grapefruits, citrus rinds, and plenty of spiciness. Goes down relatively thin, crisp, and refreshing. Some semi-sweet caramel upfront in the taste along with a little biscuity maltiness. Lots of grapefruity and grassy hoppiness in the mildly drying finish. Some light spiciness throughout. Very nice. Very sessionable.

kassner (1552) - Wexford, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 9, 2011
On tap at Mad mex. Nice golden color, nice head not much lacing. Comes across more like a german hopped lager, just a tad thin and a bit too much carbonation. Balanced for malts and hops.

Clear gold very light copper.Short head qwickly diminished to a ring with spitty lacing. Aroma is nice with toasty malt -slight sweet cereal grain,fresh dankish hops kinda floral and spicey herbal and or earthy.Slightly buttery. Taste hits you with a toasty bready somewhat foamy mouthfeel,a spicy sting of hops with smooth light carmel toasted malt some mildly grassy hops finishing clean somewhat citrusy with rhindyness gingery pepper.Fairly sessionable with some maltiness and medium/full bodied but clean with hop astringency making it seem somewhat dry at the end. Pretty nice kindof wheaty or bready/toasty malt taste but hoppy with slight fruit tones mainly citrusy.
