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.

Color is a nice amber. Aroma is floral. Taste is balanced malt and hop. Palate is heavy on the malt. Meh beer. Would not buy again. *12 oz can into pint glass. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pouring into my nonic pint glass it arrives a clear orange color. A thin bubbly white head sits on top for a few seconds and then is gone. The nose is filled with citrus, piney and earthy hops. Not overpowering but enough to give a great scent. This brew is smooth! Nice citrus and piney hop flavor. A slight bit of malt backing. Crisp and clean finish.

Draft at Victory Xfinity Live. Pours a clear orange. Aroma is strong citrus hops and very inviting. Love the strong flavor. This is a good APA. Delicious.

I poured a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass... The liquid was a light, copper, orange color with a thin, bubbly, white head that dissipated quickly. It smells amazing for a pale ale, there are hints of lime, grapefruit and sweet malt. The taste consists lemon and lime with a hint of bready sweet malt and a piney, hoppy aftertaste. The beer is light, with stinging carbonation and a slightly dry finish. Headwaters pale ale is highly drinkable, it’s perfect for a hop-head that wants to have a nice drinking session.

Another average American Pale Ale - bitter with aftertaste. Like other Victory beers better. Won’t be drinking again.
