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.

DoublEE (784) - South Euclid, Ohio, USA - OCT 18, 2012
Slightly spicy hops, herbal and citric, lemon rind, sweet tangerine asserts itself in the middle (I just love that flavor) along with a slight grassyness, cracker/biscuit malt towards the end, finishes with an herbal hop bitterness on the palate.Somewhere in between light and medium bodied, very crisp and a bit dry. Another fine beer from Victory. Sessionable and full of hop flavor, just like an American pale ale should be.

Bottle @All My Vinyl Tasting, Edinburgh. Pours golden thin-ish white head. Grapefruit nose, some sweet malty hints on the nose as well. Quite bitter straight away (lemon/bitter lemon) a sharp fruity-ness, nice enough just a little thin on the finish.

12 oz bottle. Pours amber with a long lasting white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of citrusy hops, orange marmalade caramel and biscuit malt. Body is medium and crisp. Citrusy, earthy hops dominate the palate while caramel and biscuit malt and ripe fruit provide support. Finish is long, grapefruity. Delicious brew.

Lemke10 (757) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Pours a semi-clear copper color with a slight head but not much of one leaving a little lacing in the middle of the glass. the scent smells great with its bitter hops and blend of grains and malts. The taste isn’t anything new but it is great. It has just the right volume to it as well as flavors. There’s just enough hops to make the beer great without going too far overboard. Some nice citrus and wheat hints as well. A very well made beer that I definitely suggest trying!

radio_nowhere (754) - Maryland, USA - OCT 27, 2013
Bottle into pint glass, typical clear amberish golden color with white head. Aroma of piney/citrus hops and caramel-leaning malt sweetness. Taste adds almost herbal note to the nice balance of caramel malt and hop bitterness. Light body, moderate carbonation, crisp, dry with lingering bitter finish. Good above average APA.

Bottle poured a rich golden hue w/ a fizzy white head w/ minor sticky lacing. Moderate citrus hop aroma. Initial flavor is a light sweet w/ a moderate bitter finish. Tastes are grapefruit, lemon, orange, and straw. Light to medium bodied, watery texture, lively carbonation, and a light astringent feel to the finish.
