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.

12 oz bottle from FLBC. Pours like an American pale ale, has enough hops to make it pretty much enjoyable. Went down in about 5 minutes on a 95* day, so I’d say this is sessionable. A Victory indeed.

Bottle at home from Clapton Craft. Good crisp summer beer. Easy-going and enjoyable. Fruity spicy finish.

Herbal, citrus fruit aroma. Flavors are herbal, citrus, and earthy. Nice, round mouthfeel. Honest and good.

pet3rman (366) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 6, 2011
Overall a fantastic Pale Ale. Very floral, citrusy aroma. Nice copper pour with a medium dissipating white head. Taste is pretty good, but doesn’t stand up to the aroma. Average bitterness... Maybe a bit to watery. Good PA to session.

Pours with a mild head. The hops were dominant in this beer, but it was refreshing.

joejames (361) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 26, 2015
Bottle to shaker glass, pours clear amber, one finger off white head. Some lacing and retention. Aroma of citrus fruits. Taste is nicely balanced sweet caramel malts and bitter citrusy hops. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, creamy mouth feel. Finishes slightly bitter. Tasting notes of caramel, light pine, mango, grapefruit, lemon peel and tree nuts. A very nice American Pale Ale!

355ml bottle @ home. Ordered from Ales By Mail. Fourth beer from Victory. Great body and nice colour, fruity aroma. Delicious pale ale!

bennetporter (355) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 7, 2015
Pours a dark amber from a bottle. Smells like sex. Tastes like beer though. A little thin.

billk (353) - Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, USA - MAY 2, 2013
Tastes close to New Belgium Ranger IPA. Would qualify as an IPA in a few circles.

At a party so forced to drink from bottle. A clear beer, true colors were unable to be seen. Hoppy but not a huge grapefruit bite. It is there but malt flavors also come through. More bitter than I expected. There is a bitter bite in the finish. Aroma is a light citrus with biscut. Not bad but not my favorite Victory.
