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.

Great pale ale, the hops rage from floral to herbal to citrusy and it is an all-encompassing hoppy pale ale.

3.7
Sammy (12195) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 14, 2011
Bang-on APA style, good citrus bitterness. Golden, good head, good hop aromas. A bitterness in the 60 range, years ago what would be called by many an IPA. Above average mouthfeel, satisfying. A bit of a palate shredder in bitterness, so not for everybody. Very flavourful; very drinkable.

3.6

Keg at Brewdog Shep’s bush. A dark orange coloured pour with a lasting frothy white head. Aroma is sweet floral berry, light jammy fruits, Honey, hint of lemon. Flavour is semi sweet, honey, berry fruit, blackberry, crisp pithy lemon. Palate is semi sweet with frothy crisp carbonation. Decent pale ale.

"is this a new beer? i don’t remember ever seeing it/hearing about it before May or June. anyway...it’s a pretty nice pale ale. a little tropical fruit and bitterness well balanced with a malty backbone. flavorful, but light and refreshing."
