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.

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. It’s 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.

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.

Caytinator (1005) - Waco, Texas, 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 , it’s 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!

Solid Pale ale. Thick body. Good malts base under the hop flavors. Very solid drink.

3.8
J_man (996) - Tustin, California, USA - AUG 24, 2011
Strong juicy piney, grassy hop aroma rising off a light golden/tan body with a medium white head. I would expect a huge hop flavor from the aroma, but it’s not as strong as it smells. Still plenty of dry, piney hops with a little skunkiness (in the good way) that are really well balanced by the lightly sweet, bready/grainy malt flavor. A light initial creaminess is flattened and dried out by a nice bitter finish. Very enjoyable and drinkable pale.

3.1
Bebum (993) - Massachusetts, USA - SEP 13, 2014
Limpid, ale amber, tall and persisting white head, almost no lace. Subtle nose. Medium body, well carbonated, moderately flavored, good length, Bitter, dry, rather flat in acidity, Hoppy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
