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.

keanex (1799) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - JUN 14, 2013
On tap at Joe Canals West Deptford.
Appearance: Theres a slight haze in the light amber body with a creamy white head that has average retention.
Aroma: Caramel malts and hints of orange battle for the nose with a hint of spice. Pretty mild.
Taste: Light floral bitterness is accompanied by a light malt base with a hint of spice. Not big on this.
Palate: Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: I do not enjoy this very much. The flavor profile simply doesnt appeal to me.

Lonick (1779) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 3, 2014
Bottle @All My Vinyl Tasting, Edinburgh. Pours golden thin-ish white head. Grapefruit nose, some sweet malty hints on the nose as well. Quite bitter straight away (lemon/bitter lemon) a sharp fruity-ness, nice enough just a little thin on the finish.

Nephilium (1775) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - MAR 16, 2011
Mild aroma, with just a couple of hop notes, more of a caramel aroma. Pours a clear amber, with a dusting of head. Nice hop bite in the start with this beer, with a fairly short finish. This isnt a bad beer, but theres very little out of the ordinary about it. Solid and enjoyable, but there are better in the style that are available.

degbert (1770) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 20, 2011
Bottle. Pours a dark gold with a cream-colored, large-grained head. Nose is lime, ruby red grapefruit, and rosemary. Drinks astringent, with strong hops notes underpinned with some roast malt. Definite floral notes on the close, along with a clean finish. An excellent example of the style.

Beaver (1746) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 13, 2012
12oz bottle, enjoy by 4/29/12. Pours a clear yellow gold with a smallish rocky white head that retains well and laces the glass some.

The aroma is sweet bready malts and piney hops.

The flavor is sweet, slightly vegetal, malts and a little fruit with a good sized resiny grassy hop finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with some prickly carbonation.

Overall, a decent pale ale.
