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.

Kosmokrator (849) - ITALY - DEC 2, 2015
Ale bionda ed erbacea, speziata e luppolata al naso, amarognola al palato. Poco intensa e di corpo lieve, ma per nulla spiacevole. Dissetante.

Very organic taste. Fresh, yet subsided by the stuff that makes things organic. It seems this brew was a solid pale ale at first but then went through a clarifying process that dumbed it down some. Its still solid, yet lacks the hop bite and forcefullness that would make it a super pale ale. Bronzed copper in color, a head the digs deep at first and then simmers down to a flat striaght while always there. Organic wheat and soli mix the smell with tangerine and citrus running in the background. Very fresh taste, very likeable brew. A solid, though less than stellar, pale ale. 12oz bottle poured into a Cabin 2011 Pilsner glass.

RickTStiles (826) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 1, 2011
pours clear amber with a thin white head and some bubbly, wet lacing. aroma has notes of citrus and cheese. body is medium thin, taste is mildly bitter with some grapefruit and apricot. finish is dry. A nice APA, and quite refreshing but nothing overly special.

Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 15, 2011
Enjoyed on tap in a shaker glass. The beer pours a burnished copper color, with a low white head. The aroma shows fairly aggressive notes of west coast hops, with the piney, resiny notes of Simcoe seemingly predominating, along with lesser notes of citrus. Underlying malt aromas are evident in the background. The palate is nicely bitter up front, again showing a pleasant resin character that is unfortunately absent from so many examples of the style. Malt moves to the fore in the mid-palate, showing a nice toasted note, and a noticeable, if subtle, toffee note. The finish is clean and nicely hoppy; balancing the beer in a manner that allows it to be drinkable in quantity. Overall, a beautfully styled APA. Very enjoyable.

3.5
Jado (798) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - NOV 5, 2014
From 355 ml bottle. Pours a clear orange amber with a thin but lasting white head. Aromas of orange peel, cut grass, caramel and peaches. Taste is restrained sweet fruit at first before a firmer citrus zest and pine bitterness washes through. Quite a lingering finish with a bitter but fruity aftertaste. Nicely done.
