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.

12Oz. Bottle - best by Oct 18,2011: With a thick, foamy, off-white head this pours a nice copper color. Definite pine notes up front w/ citrus and some spice; not much malt. Nice rounded mouthfeel, on the lighter side of medium in body, crisp/light carbonation. Very nice, but a little watery near the finish. First taste was full of hops. This mellows on drinking, with lingering bitterness leaving me wanting another sip. Biscuit malts balance the hops. Excellent APA, in my opinion and another great beer from Victory.

NachlamSie (3352) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 13, 2011
6 pack best before August 22, 2011. Purchased at BBM. This is a darn good pale ale. It is to pale ales what Stoudts pilsner is to pilsners. The aroma on Headwater is nice and hoppy with citrus, melons, and a bit of herbs. A doughy note is also very noticeable and makes this quite palatable. The flavor is clean, well balanced and crisp. There is that doughy-cracker thing that almost reminds me of a pils, but the yeast is slightly fruity and the bitterness leans towards citrus more heavily. Talk about a session ale, this is a winner.

oteyj (2139) - New Hampshire, USA - JUL 10, 2011
Clear copper pour with a mountainous white head. The nose holds lots of citrus notes- grapefruit and orangepeel abound some grassy herbals following closely behind. A hint of bready caramel malt comes through to provide a bit of a balance. The flavor holds juicy citrus and nectar fruits, with apricot, mandarin orange, nectarine, peach, and grapefruit coming through strongly. Evergreen resin hints make an appearance, as does a nice malt balance. The palate is quite full for the style with low carbonation and a bitter resinous finish. Great rendition of the style.

Tap; pour is honey golden with an average white head that retains on the average side. This brew has a nice floral hop note on the nose, with a bit of biscuits and a touch of sweetness. The brew starts on the sweet side, with biscuits, honey and florals rounding it out. Bitterness is subdued. This is a nice brew
