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. Well 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, weve had a fair amount of latitude in paying homage to water in our beer. So, weve 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.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - NOV 9, 2012
A clear golden body with a nice white head that had decent retention and lacing. Aroma had a nice citrus hop profile with nice bread malts. There was a slight hint of pine hops to it. Flavor was nice and bitter, not dominating like an IPA, but still assertive. Hops were mainly citrus but there was just enough pine to balance it out. Bread malts were decent. A nice easy to drink beer, terrific session ale.

0,1l from tap at Craft Bier Fest Wien shared through 3. golden clear color, small white head. smells of light pines, spices, light bread, spices, decent smell. medium body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes of pines, clorophyl, bitter herbs. finishes quite light with a light bitterness and notes of herbs. decent but hop notes are not very present, also lacks a bit on the taste especially towards the finish.

12oz Flasche. Klares orangefarbenes Bier mit flchtigem Schaum. Es duftet nach Hopfen mit einer ungewhnlichen Tee Note. Dazu berreife Wassermelone. Wirkt wie ein leichter Fehlton. Kanntig im Antrunk. Deutlich das Malz und Hopfenbittere. Im Abgang ein Hauch Lakritze.
