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. Weíll 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, weíve had a fair amount of latitude in paying homage to water in our beer. So, weíve 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.

phaleslu (8006) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Draft at Lavomatic, served in a pint glass. Pours a clear orange-gold with a finger of eggshell white head. Aroma of herbal and floral hops, citrus, pine, and caramel malts. The flavor starts fairly straightforward, with grainy and caramel malts, leafy hops, and mild citrus, but finishes on a long, fresh herbal note that I loved, and that redeemed it from being a forgettable APA. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation. Solid APA.

On tap. Pours with a clear, pale yellow body with a white head. Aromas are grassy, grainy, lime and citrus. Flavors are grainy, cornbread and light citrus. Grain is the dominating flavor, not hops (and this is fresh). Lively and dry.

laiti (7744) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 2, 2014
35,5 cl bottle @ Oluthuone Kuikka, enjoy by 18.12.2013. Aroma has caramel, resiny tones and some hay. Flavour is somewhat hoppy with grass, some fruity tones, caramel and hay. Like a mixture of fresh pils and pale ale. Refreshing and good, perhaps a bit stuffy though.
