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.

Victory Headwaters Pale Ale is a crystal clear, lightly sparkling golden ale with a dense, bubbly white head that has outstanding retention and lacing. It has a huge, fresh hoppy aroma of pine and flowers. It has a very smooth medium body with a solid, dry finish. Its a nice, simple, hoppy flavor with perfect bitterness and perfect balance. It tastes slightly dry and piny. This is a supreme example of an American pale ale.

Light amber, average carbonation. Aroma/flavor are full of citrus up front with a light caramel touch. Aftertaste is a light and mild lingering bitterness that is slightly grassy as opposed to citrusy or floral, making it rather pleasant and drinkable as a flavorful session ale.

Caytinator (1005) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - OCT 7, 2013
Pint on tap. Straw-colored clear beer, persistent small head and decent lacing. OK smell, nothing too special, a little "rough". Overrated taste. Basic pale ale, nothing too fancy. Bitter, a little hop oil, kind of pleasant. Nothing bad in it , its got a light palate for a pale ale. Pretty good.

Drank from a twelvee ounce bottle, acquired through the unknown. Has a decent well balanced aroma. Tastes sweet, with not much hop finish, a decent pale ale!

Pours light orange, very clear and very still. Nice refreshing aroma of hops, grass, and some biscuit notes. Flavor is mostly bitter with a finish even more so. Pretty refreshing, although quite has some dry qualities.

rangerred (989) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - JUN 9, 2012
12oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy medium copper with a thick 1.5 finger off-white head. Really good head retention. Aroma is full of citrus hops backed up by a little bit of malt underneath. Hops really overpower everything, though and are very inviting. The flavor really pulls the malt and hops together with lots of citrus up front carried by some toasted caramel underneath. A little bready malt as well. Bitterness ends up being on the light to moderate side and I really wish there was a little more malt. The beer finishes relatively clean and slightly sticky. Overall, another great beer from Victory. A great summer beer and one that is highly sessionable.
