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.

ryanscourt (890) - 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.

Holy flowers batman! I can’t say that I’ve ever tasted a beer quite this floral. The flavor is sweet, floral and hoppy, but not in a bitter way, not in an overpowering way, an absolutely amazingly delicious way. Flavor is a 10 (there is also some citrus), I give it a 10, I still got wood (Varsity Blues reference a decade later is fine).

Lemke10 (881) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 24, 2013
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!

Vestergaard (871) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2015
Tap at Fermentoren Aarhus. Pours a clear amber with a medium sized, white, long lasting head. Aroma is not very intense. Bitter, grassy, piney hops, sweeter pale malts and some citrus. Taste is pretty bitter up front, very nice pine, slight malty sweetness, but just a plain, crisp pale ale. Medium carbonation, smooth but crisp body.

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

sfontain (842) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 10, 2014
12 oz bottles (several). Lovely reddish orange-golden-amber pour, super huge frothy head dissipates slowly into a thin covering, leaving strong lacing and is easily livened up by swirling. Aroma is so open and pleasant; fruity, floral, caramel, slight yeast and biscuit. Flavor malt-forward, bread, grapefruit; rather long, medium bitter finish. Mouthfeel is full, frothy, slick and oily. Man, what a great APA.
