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.

(bottle). This a really nice APA. Clear golden-amber with enough carbonation to enhance the palate. The favor is a mild balanced malt with subtle sweetness. Perfect to session or enjoy just one for fun. I really enjoyed this on a hot spring day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

16 oz pour from the brick store. Light head, with a amber color. Aromas of hops and citrus. Very well balanced, absolutely a great session beer

Haslinger (866) - The World of Beer, Texas, USA - JAN 5, 2014
12 ounce pour, yellowish beige color, some wet hops and fresh socks aroma, solid crisp metalish fresh taste, good but not great would not search out and drink again

ryanscourt (865) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Solid pale ale, fluffy white head, pine hops with some citrus. A liitle bit of dirty socks in the aroma. Aftertaste is pretty short but overall a lot of nice flavors. However by the end just wasn’t too excited to keep drinking.

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!

Bottle shared somewhere in the middle of Florida. Smells really weird - taste is not much better.

Light orange pour, thin tight head. Grapefruit in the nose. Lightly bitter on the tongue. Toasted malt plays second fiddle to hop bitterness on the way out.
