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.

King_Alex_II (1140) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 3, 2015
Orangy color with little foam. Hoppy smell. The taste is a bit earthy, lightly carbonated and a little oily in the aftertaste. Not bad, but a little tart.

raphael (1136) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 6, 2011
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: APR 29, 2011 Nice to see Victory trying something without tons of hops. Still good, but a slightly hoppy pale ale.

Golden-brown/amberish color topped by a thin white head. Aroma of citrusy hops, grapefruit zest and orange peel with a little doughy malt beneath. Crisp earthy bitterness, not much malt presence. Finishes nice and dry. A solid straight forward APA.
