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.

Purchased at Binnys in Chicago, IL, enjoyed after a long work week. Appearance is a pretty clear amber with a rich frothy white head that laces to the glass. Aroma is very rich in hops with lemon notes, a bit of grapefruit as well, also beady malt. Taste is pretty hoppy for a pale ale with a really nice bitter finish that also goes down pretty smooth. Pretty tasty stuff, Im using the word pretty a lot in this review. Its pretty good!

DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 25, 2013
Poured into a perfect pint. 3.0 A: Faintly hazed light orange color. Just half a finger of frothy off-white head with average retention, but no lacing. 4.5 S: Lot of aroma in this. Jam packed action for the nose. Quite hoppy with floral and dank resiny, cat pissy hops. Maybe some citrus and pine underneath. Grainy with a light caramel and a light toastiness. Solid neutral malt aroma. Not entirely complex, but powerful and more importantly, exceedingly pleasant. 4.0 T: Good balance betweent the hops and the malts. Hops are again floral, resiny, and dank with just slight cat notes. Grainy malts with light toast and caramel. Solid flavors that are big and bold. Well done. 3.5 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Light creaminess and could use some more, but good enough overall. 4.0 D: Tasty, well rounded pale ale. Super drinkable and easily classified as an "anytime beer."
