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: Pours a light orange with a small white head. CO2 release is decent and lasts throughout. Taste is bitter with a nice grapefruit citrus flavor. Nice and balanced and an easy drinker. The palate is smooth, bitter and a bit oily. Very nice Pale, bordering on an IPA or a bitter.

Voodoo (476) - 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.

HopBackDoc (474) - Hatboro, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 26, 2011
Pours a deep golden color with foamy white head. Aroma of grassy hops. Flavor was deep and balanced with sweet malts and earthy, citrus hops. Very well done pale ale, refreshing and easy drinking.

pinkie (470) - New York, USA - AUG 26, 2013
Pours clear golden amber with a scant head of bone white foam that fell fast to a cap and ring. Left nice lace and constantly refreshed. In the right light has an orange hue.

Nose is out of this world. Citrus, lemon and orange with apple behind that. Light malt sweetness, grains and light bread. Generous spice, sweetly floral and herbal.

Taste follows the nose all the way. Citrus twang greets you first followed by a light sweet malt. Cereal grains carry it to the back with an earthly presence and a healthy helping of spice to tingle on the tongue. Ample carbonation lightens the body. Mouthfeel is sticky, creamy, crisp and light. The apple is sweet and tart like a good apple should be. Lingers whole in the aftertaste with no one characteristic able to be separated from the others. Terrific balance and the aftertaste has a slight mineral quality.

This is one of the best pale ales you will have. It’s refreshing, it’s delicious, it’s well made and you want to have it always in your refrigerator. It’s confident and brisk.

Doofgoblin (470) - Chevy Chase, Washington DC, USA - NOV 12, 2015
For a Pale, it’s really pretty good. Aroma is nice and more than one would expect... notes of citrus and toasty malt. Flavor is a smooth but medium maltiness with plenty of citrusy hop bite. Finish is only slightly bitting but refreshing. nice.

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.
