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.

On tap at Pizza Daddy. Very pleasant surprise. If I lived here in PA would be a great session beer. Hoppier than many pales, a little thin with moments of hoppy edge at first. Light in body for a pale ale. almost no head.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2012 Hazy Yellow pours from 12oz bottle. Clean, crisp, hoppy, and twinged with citrus. Taste like an IPA to me because of its assertiveness. Excellent.

On tap, of all places, Moon Golf Club in Moon PA. Although not great, not a bad beer. Strong balance of hops and malts, good head retention, bready flavor, enjoyable. Good brew for an APA.

HighWine (955) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - JAN 17, 2012
Tap flight. Light amber pour with no head in this glass. Lightly carbonated. Aroma of Earthy hops. Flavor tastes like chewing a mouthful of fresh hops with a teaspoon of potting soil! Aromatic, Earthy, and very tasty. Bitter flavors linger in the mouth. Moderate palate. A nice, hoppy, American pale.

Poured a clear, golden amber. Grass and bread aroma. Taste has a nice bitter bite with spice. Great balance and a tasty brew, one of my favorite American Pale Ale.

Draft. Top notch pale ale. Citrus and earthy hops with grain/bready malts. Balanced, tasty, clean mouthfeel. Just the right amount of flavor but still light and very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A Gorgeous, floral-hopped pale ale. Clean finish, good mouth feel, lots of refreshing citrus and (dare I say) geranium on the palate. A top quality ale (and easily my favorite) from the solid brewery that is Victory. Akin to similar hopped brews such as Daisy Cutter and Gumball Head.

Alla mi moglie garba da morire, e io gliela compro volentieri perchè penso che il rapporto qualità prezzo è ottimo; bella agrumata e amarognola il giusto.

monkeychugg55 (941) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - NOV 11, 2014
Clear copper body with a small white head. The aroma is mostly sweet, medium caramel malt, with some light bread notes and some floral and slightly citrusy hops. Pretty malty flavor with some more floral hops on the moderately bitter finish.

nolankowal (937) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 8, 2011
Bottle. Pours copper with a off white head. Aroma of caramel malt, spice, earthy hops, a bit of biscuit and dull pine. Flavors of light sweet caramel/biscuity malt, bitter tinges here and there, toasty throughout. Even carbonation and a nice balance of sweet/malty/bitter throughout with a malty finish that holds a nice creeping bitter end. Overall, a pretty nice session beer.
