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.

rollinsr (413) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - MAR 9, 2011
Very light in color, alcohol, and aroma. Slight citrusy characters similar to the Hop Wallop. Nice bitter grapefruit flavor that is very very crisp. As soon the bitter flavor hits the tongue it virtually disappears. Very nice drinkable beer.

Voodoo (410) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 20, 2011
Pours a deep golden color with a fair head. A well built pale with heavy hop presence and a slight bitter aftertaste. Hops have that piney, floral notes of possibly Cascade. With a manageable alcohol content a quite refreshing pale.

beergodd1 (400) - Conneaut, Ohio, USA - APR 30, 2011
Nice easy drinking but hoppy beer. Pours a pale yellow with a slight orange tint and thin White carbonated head. Good retention. Hoppy aroma with notes of grapefruit. Moderately sweet/malt flavor with earthy, herbal hops. Balanced. Almost an IPA. Not bad.

jdjuice (398) - Kumamoto, JAPAN - OCT 6, 2013
A happy order mixup scored me a bottle of this. All hops on the nose, really smooth and refreshing mouthfeel, if not a bit one note. Pretty light behind the hops, easy to drink, but not too complex.

MrHult (396) - SWEDEN - APR 1, 2015
Fat på Taylor & Jones Hornstull. Dimmig ljus bärnstensfärgad vätska med vitt skum. Doftar sött åt det kådiga hållet. Mild men smakfull apa med en maltig karaktär och beska.

badwhale (391) - Bitterville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 6, 2011
Bottle to glass mug. Pours a nice clear copper / amber color with a medium off white head. Good lacing. Lots of nice crisp hop flavors. Medium body, but heavy enough to avoid the dreaded "watery" tag. Really nice summer beer.
