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. hman43 (1955) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - APR 13, 2013
Decent head with body. Nice golden color. Nice citrus aroma. Strong citrus taste but a little more carbonation than expected that takes away from the taste. Overall a quality brew. vanvenlo (1940) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - MAY 1, 2016

Pours a dark golden with a white head. Aroma is lots of citrusy hops. Flavor is nicely bitter, fruity, resiny hops, sweet malt toward the dry finish. aleksander9 (1927) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 19, 2017

UPDATED: APR 11, 2011 Victory’s made a fine entry into the mediocrity-laden style of Pale Ale. Headwaters is one hoppy beast, yet keeps the texture nice and light. Add this feel to such a manageable ABV and Headwaters kinda rules the roost of normal ol’ Pale Ales. Should of known a solid brewery like Victory could make a fine Pale; unfortunately, I’ve been let down by the style many a time before. Even Stone screwed up their Pale Ale. But Headwaters is pretty damn awesome, a lovely small beer. Beaver (1886) - 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.andyhwcinc (1886) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2012
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.
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, I’m using the word pretty a lot in this review. It’s pretty good! raymow (1879) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 14, 2015
bottled - pale amber color. Great flavor. Slightly sweet and hoppy. A very good drinkable pale ale.
