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. 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.

Pours an orange rusty yellow, with a small dissipating head. Nose is citrusy but light. Taste is citrusy but on the light side, bit of a thirst quuencher for an APA. Finish is dry and bitter, very drinkable. Nothing special, but good. Quaff Score 7 / 10

For a pale ale it’s done really well. Nice heavy hops, but not ipa. Aroma is hoppy, and a tiny citrus lemon. Taste is grassy hops. Nice orange color. Good carbonation. Palate is even and smooth. Great representation of a pale. Tap.

BroSpud (2247) - , Massachusetts, USA - MAR 7, 2011
12oz bottle. Very light, almost clear amber pour with little to no head. Not bad at all for a pale ale. More hops than expected. Goes down real easy, a good beer to have when having more than one.

Kita (2247) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JUL 23, 2015
Bottle, 0.355l, shared with Leo. Pours clear amber color with medium creamy off-white head and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of tropical fruits, flowers and bread. Taste starts with moderate sweet caramel malt and resin, following is refreshing grassy, mouthfeel rather dry, while finish is pleasant bitter. Medium body, oily texture and average carbonation in palate. Not victorious, but it’s always good to suit your needs...

12oz bottle. Pours hazy orange with white head. Aromas of sweet malts, orange and a little bit of biscuit. Flavors of sugary malts, faint hop bitterness, and some citrus. Basically a malty mess at this point. I am guessing this is old at this point.

That1Guy (2237) - Colorado, USA - JAN 19, 2012
12 oz. bottle pours a light, very clear orange with a bit of a head. Incredibly earthy nose and flavor. Big malt backbone. Not as hoppy as I expected but still pretty nice.

Crisp clean American pale ale, a little bit of doughy yeast character, restrained grassy/piney hoppiness. Tasty beer.
