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.

Aroma is sweet orange and biscuity malts with slight bread dough underneath. Taste is floral, citrusy and some kind of melon sweetness in there also. Medium bodied and easy to drink. A classic straight out of the box good ol’ pale ale. Good!

The Beerbistro (Toronto, Ontario, Canada)

The beer poured a hazed dark golden orange with a light tan head that lasted a while. Aroma is honey, grass, citrus and weak caramel. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with average carbonation. Flavour is light grapefruit, grainy malt, and notes of light sweetness.

madquacker (1094) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - MAY 10, 2015
Big hoppy brew and nutty flavours. Chewy to the end. Sweetish and good to the last drop.

BiddleBrau (1087) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2011
Lighter amber with dense white head. Orange/citrus pine nose. Hops not a prominent in bitterness, malt is fuller than nose. Light palate. Hops provide a bit green hop flavor.

Mep3222 (1085) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - OCT 9, 2015
Aroma of tropical citrus hops with piney resin. Taste is a malty base beer with a primarily piney bitter hop balance and finish. Tastes like a piney bitter ipa. Not a bad beer, but a bit light palate for the amount of hops and a bit too piney bitter for my liking. Maybe some medicinal hops in there as well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice and crisp, the way a pale ale should be. They are pushing the water and it may very well play a factor. Very clean finish in which the hops predominate.
