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

WVHouseofBeer (1032) - West Virginia, USA - JAN 2, 2013
Pours a dark orange color with a decent sized off-white head that leaves some lacing. Really nice pine and citrus aromas. Flavors are not as strong as the aromas but consist of the same, along with caramel malt. Mouthfeel is a bit light and watery with a bitter finish. Overall a very good APA, but not one of the best.

shroud0fdoom (150) - Maryland, USA - DEC 31, 2012
Perfectly blended with citrus, resin, floral hops, firm classic Victory German malt bill. This is refreshing and drinks like a session IPA without the bitter bite. Recommended.

raradel (343) - Atlanti Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 28, 2012
Thin and clean tasting, hoppy and bright with an apple juice finish. This is a great example of a lite Pale beer, almost IPA in character but subdued. Clean and light with a bursting flavor.

Type: 12-oz. bottle Glass: Stone pint glass From: Holiday Wine Cellar Price: $19.99 for the 6-pack Misc.: Box said enjoy by March 10, 2013; Also a long and uninformative spiel about water on the bottle and not as much (really nothing) about the beer. Poured a honey golden, pale, clear color with two fingers of snowy, frothy white head. Healthy amount of thick, foamy white lacing on the sides. Good thick retention on the top as well that lasted throughout the pour. Smelled a sharp whiff of hops up front, somewhere between resin and citrus (grapefruit). The bitterness comes through unambiguously. Also lemon grass, hay and honey. Tasted the hops first like the smell. Got that mix of resin and grapefruit. Also some lemon in there. Cereal and light bread. Light body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Bitter finish. Just a really good pale ale. Will savor my other two in the Victory variety pack.

backdaft (286) - Menasha Red Light District, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 22, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear golden/amber in color. Thin white head with good lacing. Aroma is citrus hops and a bit of malt. Crisp earthy hop bitterness, grapefruit citrus, and bready malt flavors. Medium body and carbonation. Finish is clean and dry.
