3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle in pint glass from Downtown Discount Beverage. Aroma is strong bready malt with floral, herbal, musky-resinous hops. Appearance is clear gold with orange tinge, nice sparkle with virtually no head and mild lacing. Taste is nice mix of bitter and sweet, slightly citrusy, metallic, with corn chip finish which is long. Palate is light bodied with thin texture and slightly overcarbonated. Overall, a lot of positives here and very enjoyable to drink.

Flaska från privatimport.
Klar gyllengul vätska med tjockare vitt skum.
Doftar inte så mycket, men malt och typ päron.
Päronsöt, rätt vattnig men det kanske var meningen?

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a nice amber with a medium offwhite lasting head, with very good head retention and lacing to the end. Aroma of caramel malt, citrus, orange fruity esters fill the senses as well as some good citrus piney hops. Taste is caramel malt, fruity citrus notes, some yeast and citrus piney hops. Palate is a medium body with good carbonation. Finish is sweet caramel malt, fruity citrus flavor, some slight orange peel, ending with some good citrus piney hops bitterness for balance. Overall a very good, balanced and tasty solid all around Pale ale. enjoyed this.

Pour orange off white head. Aroma earth, caramel, pine, floral, grassy hops. Taste caramel, pine, floral and grapefruit, resiny hops, not enough malt backbone. MF medium body light fizzy carb. Pretty blah.

Was informed about this one by my friend Bill Ellis. Great to see a new beer from Victory that is not > 8% alcohol. This one is extremely floral and fruity with a very crisp and slightly bitter palate. Color is extremely clear and has a unique shade of orange and gold hues. This beer is predominantly hoppy.

On tap at Proof, advertised as Victory 15th anniversary, pour pale later, a little tan lacing, weak hoppiness, very dry, grassy, a bit gritty, not great, but spectacular for an anniversary. Boring.

UPDATED: APR 11, 2011 Victory’s made a fine entry into the mediocrity-laden style of Pale Ale. Headwaters is one hoppy beast, yet keeps the texture nice and light. Add this feel to such a manageable ABV and Headwaters kinda rules the roost of normal ol’ Pale Ales. Should of known a solid brewery like Victory could make a fine Pale; unfortunately, I’ve been let down by the style many a time before. Even Stone screwed up their Pale Ale. But Headwaters is pretty damn awesome, a lovely small beer.

This beer must receive the maximum score for aroma. It has an excellent hoppy aroma with a spearmint finish. The color is a clear copper color with a great bubbly pillowy creamy head. the flavor is hoppy and minty fresh. Overall, one of my favorites from VIctory!
