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!

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.

ContemplateBeer (2097) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Aroma: Pungent grassy nose with some underlying citrus character, malts tend toward semi-sweet cereal, something here almost reminds me of cheesecloth. Appearance: Pale copper, clear pour with a foamy white head that settles into a patchy, bubbly skin. Flavor: Malts come out a bit more than expected, more orange citrus than grass, though the grass still persists in the background. A bit more bitter and a touch lemony toward the finish. Palate: Light-medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: A well made pale ale, though not my favorite from their lineup.

Pours a nice golden color with white head. Some Pine and citrus up front with a little malt on the back; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a nice amount of malt and hop combo.

Ungstrup (38414) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 4, 2014
Draft. An amber beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma has notes of citrus fruits, spicy hops, malt, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of spicy hops, exotic fruits, and chewy malts, leading to a bitter finish.
