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.

Sweet malt first leading into a lemon zesty ice tea flavour, and finishing with some medium pine/grapefruit bitterness. Finished the can in 10 mins, so must have been good !

0,1l from tap at Craft Bier Fest Wien shared through 3. golden clear color, small white head. smells of light pines, spices, light bread, spices, decent smell. medium body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes of pines, clorophyl, bitter herbs. finishes quite light with a light bitterness and notes of herbs. decent but hop notes are not very present, also lacks a bit on the taste especially towards the finish.
