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. Well 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, weve had a fair amount of latitude in paying homage to water in our beer. So, weve 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.

Kind of creamy, malty, and hoppy. Some spiced and roasted malts. Enjoyable. Slightly bland but a good brew.

Poured with thin white head that faded quickly smelled of hops hay and grass. Tasted about the same with a weak aftertase decent beer

J_man (685) - Tustin, California, USA - AUG 24, 2011
Strong juicy piney, grassy hop aroma rising off a light golden/tan body with a medium white head. I would expect a huge hop flavor from the aroma, but its not as strong as it smells. Still plenty of dry, piney hops with a little skunkiness (in the good way) that are really well balanced by the lightly sweet, bready/grainy malt flavor. A light initial creaminess is flattened and dried out by a nice bitter finish. Very enjoyable and drinkable pale.

hoosiers1994 (684) - Maryland, USA - MAR 28, 2012
Draught pours a light amber, cloudy yellow. Aromas are cereal and floral with some grass. Tastes were some cereal from the malt, balance by some nice floral, citrus and grassy notes. Body is lighter and the finish is nice and hoppy with a dry edge. Overall a great pale

Scipio (679) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - SEP 30, 2013
Pours a clear, light, golden amber, with a thin, slightly off white head. Aroma has caramel, herbal hops, grapefruit, honey, and hints of bread. The taste is sharp in pine and grapefruit, still with a good deal of herbal tones, along with caramel undertones. It has a fresh, almost minty flavor that is noticeable throughout. Dry and pretty bitter, with a short aftertaste of pine and hops. More light in body, with a thin texture, with above average carbonation. Its alright, but Im not very impressed.

carboloader (673) - Houston, Texas, USA - SEP 30, 2011
On tap at Little Woodrows. Pours transparent gold. Very light and drinkable, crisp carbonation and weakly citrus flavors. Easy to drink, but seems watery to this IPA fan. Still, a great session ale if you want a light pale ale with some citrus flavor.

Light orange color with small white head and minimal lacing. Aroma and flavor are all malt, amber, light caramels, with grapefruity hops. Okay overall

Orange clear pour slight white head. Aroma of tangerine citrus piney hops. Tastes mostly of fresh green hops with a significant wheaty malty background with moderate hop bitterness. Buttery mouthfeel.
