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.

MaBeer1972 (1997) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Bottle from a mix pack. Poured into the free Victory pint glass that came with it. A light golden brew, slightly hazy. Light head that fades to a thick lace. Bready-citrus aromas and flavor. Body on the lighter side but finish is typically sticky like most Pale Ales.

Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - JUL 21, 2012
Aroma of nice citrus and floral. Pours orange with a big sudsy head. Taste is light but hoppy with the same citrus and resin with just a hint of brown sugar. Delicious and sessionable.

RSRIZZO (1984) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUL 9, 2013
12oz bottle poured into a Lager glass at 43. Color is bright gold with active carbonation and a small tight head. Aroma is hoppy giving notes of pine and citrus. It has a medium body with a crisp mouth feel. Flavor comes in slightly sweet with corn and citrus then ends with a mild bitterness. After taste is a lingering bitterness, a bit of the citrus and a note of pine. Overall its a nice Pale, not a stand out, just an easy drinking brew.

Bottle. Pours a bright copper color with a small white foamy head. Nose is sweet honey, biscuits and floral and piney hops. Palate is full and smooth with an end of tongue sting and a very full swallow. Flavor is toasted honey biscuits piney hops with some light spiciness and a nice refreshing feeling

Foxbush (1973) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 12, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2011 This was purchased to taste from The Caboose in Ashland. Victory is an excelllent brewery. The ale poured a clear golden to light amber color with a some orange. No lacing while head that dissapated. The bitter flavors are balanced with some a flinty or piny taste. The hops could be greener than I am used to. Not a difficult APA to drink but unusual. Smooth finish with some bitterness remaining. My second was purchased at Total Wine and More in June. An overall good APA for anytime.

hombrepalo (1971) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 18, 2011
12oz bottle. Pours bright amber and a little hazy with a white head. Aroma of citrus hops, caramel malts. Flavor strong of the oily pine hops for an APA. Definitely worth trying.

Yorker (1969) - Herning, DENMARK - MAY 26, 2014

jstraw (1966) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 6, 2011
Amber gold with modest, creamy, white head / Big nose of weed and pine, with underlying citrus notes / Medium body, soft carbonation, a touch watery, with good, lightly biting, finish / Flavors of fresh cut pine, weed, orange, and grapefruit / Spectular nose, but the flabby body detracts.

DocJitsu (1943) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - APR 9, 2014
Pours a clear, classic golden color with a one-finger, creamy, antique white head. The head dissipates too quickly, or I wouldve scored its appearance a 4. A well, balanced malt/floral hop bouquet is noted. A relatively rich mouthfeel yields to some mild astringency late. Theres something peculiar lying a the flavors foundation that disrupts the malt and hop characters. Almost like petroleum jelly. Nearly flavorless, yet has a distinctive flavor. Its not off putting. Just disrupts what would otherwise be the natural flavors of the ale. It takes on the hop character and bitterness of a session IPA, but with a smidgeon better malt backbone.

zgaier (1940) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - APR 6, 2012
Pours amber-orange with a white head and aroma of hops and pine. Taste is subtle, of hops, pine, citrus, and floral notes with a dry, bitter finish. Very drinkable, lighter brew, not bad.
