3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Was informed about this one by my friend Bill Ellis. Great to see a new beer from Victory that is not > 8% alcohol. This one is extremely floral and fruity with a very crisp and slightly bitter palate. Color is extremely clear and has a unique shade of orange and gold hues. This beer is predominantly hoppy.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: APR 11, 2011 Victory’s made a fine entry into the mediocrity-laden style of Pale Ale. Headwaters is one hoppy beast, yet keeps the texture nice and light. Add this feel to such a manageable ABV and Headwaters kinda rules the roost of normal ol’ Pale Ales. Should of known a solid brewery like Victory could make a fine Pale; unfortunately, I’ve been let down by the style many a time before. Even Stone screwed up their Pale Ale. But Headwaters is pretty damn awesome, a lovely small beer.

Bottle poured an nice cloudy light brown with yellow hues, light white head that dissipated quickly, aroma is kind of herbal/woody and taste is hoppy but not overwhelming. Another nice offering from Victory.

Light copper in the glass with a thin white head. Aroma of pine, citrus, and spruce. Decent balance between the malt (with light caramel notes) and hop bitterness.

Bottle. Not sure of the age. Poured clear golden brown with small head that faded. Light aroma and flavour. Kind of watery but still really good. I’m really glad I tried this and I recommend a taste.
