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.

Pretty representative of its style. I like that the happiness isn’t too tongue splitting, like many American pales are. Nice floral aroma, piss color, thin head that is retained throughout, watery mouth feel (again, typical of its style). Not bad!

bigben873 (262) - Virginia, USA - MAY 29, 2014
Nice malty/floral aroma, with a cloudy amber color, very little head, smooth light flavor without a bitter hop aftertaste of some pale ales, however a little lighter than preferred. Definitely a summer afternoon beer.
