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.

Middle of the road, perfectly fine pale ale. Good gateway beer for those beginning to experiment with hops on their palate.

Beaver (1774) - 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.

degbert (1771) - 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.

Recently Ive been searching high and low for an awesome pale ale but living in seattle everything is a damn 7% IPA and a quality pale ale has been shunned. Now low abv "session" IPAs are all the rage but they are usually just bitter hop water. What happened to a normal goddamn pale ale? Finally! Not surprised that this comes from one of my favorite east coast breweries. Handedly hopped with flowery and earthy hops. Light bodied but a enough malt to perfectly balance it. Ive been moving away from IPAs because they have become too syrupy and heavy and then bittered to hell. This beer is well crafted and proves you can get a flavorful hoppy beer without all the alcohol and malt. Please tell me this will be an all-year offering.

From a can , a rather bland aroma, just light grassy hops. On the tongue , there is a nice level of carbonation, with a bitter hop finish

Bottle. Just an average tasting pale ale. Not all that great. Golden color. Some head. More hops then not but not the greatest.

Copper colored, medium- off white head. Aroma is of malt, caramel biscuit and herbal hops with some citrus notes. Taste is low to medium sweet malt, caramel, quite biscuity, herbal, grassy hops with some citrus. Low+ bitterness and a dry finish. Low to medium bodied and carbonation. Easy drinking and nice.

Savvy1982 (1706) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 10, 2012
Draft at The Happy Gnome. Pours clear honey-gold, thin white head, great lacing. Nose is tea-like, perfumed hops, very sweet malt, grass, earth. Flavours of mandarin and navel oranges; very mellow, grassy and sweet. Like a glass of melonade; a bit of spice to off-set the melon-rush. A really tasty little brew.
