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.

Poured a dark golden color with medium head. Aroma of fresh, citrus hops. Taste is light to medium-light bitter, Lighter body, slick texture, average carbonation. Easy drinkin, session type beer. Crisp and refreshing. Nice balance of bitter hops and malts.

Very dry and slightly bitter. A very good pale ale. Full bodied and utterly refreshing. Another winner from Victory.

Beautiful fresh hop aroma. Lots of pine and citrus in the aromatic profile. Bright golden color and very drinkable.

12 oz bottle that says "enjoy by Sept 19 2011." Hmm. Pours a clouded light amber with a white head. Aroma is honeyish at first, some stale floral hop aroma, stale biscuit. Flavor is biscuit, again rather stale, light honey, stale herbal and citrus hops. This doesn’t seem to have held up that well.

Tap; pour is honey golden with an average white head that retains on the average side. This brew has a nice floral hop note on the nose, with a bit of biscuits and a touch of sweetness. The brew starts on the sweet side, with biscuits, honey and florals rounding it out. Bitterness is subdued. This is a nice brew

on tap at buckeye beer engine 19Feb2012, nose is mostly hoppy and the color of the beer makes me think there is more malt here, and tasting reveals exactly that, in true victory form they balance the hoppy nose out nicely with some malt back.. this would do nicely on a brisk spring day.

Type: 12-oz. bottle Glass: Stone pint glass From: Holiday Wine Cellar Price: $19.99 for the 6-pack Misc.: Box said enjoy by March 10, 2013; Also a long and uninformative spiel about water on the bottle and not as much (really nothing) about the beer. Poured a honey golden, pale, clear color with two fingers of snowy, frothy white head. Healthy amount of thick, foamy white lacing on the sides. Good thick retention on the top as well that lasted throughout the pour. Smelled a sharp whiff of hops up front, somewhere between resin and citrus (grapefruit). The bitterness comes through unambiguously. Also lemon grass, hay and honey. Tasted the hops first like the smell. Got that mix of resin and grapefruit. Also some lemon in there. Cereal and light bread. Light body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Bitter finish. Just a really good pale ale. Will savor my other two in the Victory variety pack.

katrinaez (1432) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 24, 2016
For a pale ale it’s done really well. Nice heavy hops, but not ipa. Aroma is hoppy, and a tiny citrus lemon. Taste is grassy hops. Nice orange color. Good carbonation. Palate is even and smooth. Great representation of a pale. Tap.

Onslow (1410) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - AUG 17, 2011
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Copper-gold brew with two fingers of head. Nice hoppy aroma. Taste is crisp and clean - relatively light malts at the start quickly giving way to complex hops. Finish is clean and bitter with a short lingering afertaste. Hops on par or better than many IPA’s, but definately a Pale Ale in style - light, crisp, refreshing, complex, great character. A worl class pale ale.
