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.

On tap at Pizza Daddy. Very pleasant surprise. If I lived here in PA would be a great session beer. Hoppier than many pales, a little thin with moments of hoppy edge at first. Light in body for a pale ale. almost no head.

TedE (1212) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 15, 2016
355 ml bottle into shaker. Slightly hazy bronze beer with thin white sudsy head. A few tiny bubbles ascend. A slight zinginess, lingering finish. A bit fruity, a touch of malt, some subtle hop touchs. This is a beer that develops with every swallow. As it warms more flavours appear. But its so easy drinking Ive finished it! Shouldve bought two........

Excellent pale ale. Knock the edge off the hop devil and you have this one. Great color and flavor, grape fruity hop, a little citrusy and floral, but not to the point where it gets annoying, good session beer.

BiddleBrau (1192) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2011
Lighter amber with dense white head. Orange/citrus pine nose. Hops not a prominent in bitterness, malt is fuller than nose. Light palate. Hops provide a bit green hop flavor.

UPDATED: MAY 28, 2013 [firkin] Pleasant, smooth. Could have used just a tad more carbonation from the gravity pour, would like to try it in bottle or draft. A somewhat less aggressive APA hopwise, a nice change from some of the APA/IPA blurring that goes on. Nice looking in the glass, very quaffable. [update 5/28/13] I like the flavor of this beer and I really should try it with normal carbonation. But this time around it was on the hand pump and I just thought it didnt stand up. Too thin, downing the palate...
