Featured Beer of the Week: Victory Headwaters Pale Ale

Pale Ale happens to be my preferred style of beer, so I was excited to try Pennsylvania’s own Victory Brewing Company’s Headwaters Pale Ale.  The claim to fame here is the purity of the water utilized to brew this beer.  It pours a glorious orange/copper cloudy glow into a pint glass.  It settled to barely an inch of head that was a bit on the weak side, that did not really stick to the sides of the glass well.

The initial aroma hits you with a more of sweet flowery hoppy aroma, but you can initially taste the malts of mocha/toffee notes.  It follows with a dry spicy hoppy finish that falls somewhat flat in a slightly bitter aftertaste.

Overall, this beer hits all of the characteristics of a classic American Pale Ale to perfection.  Although, the malt & hop combination may not be my favorite as compared to others, it may hit the sweet spot for you!

Enjoy one ASAP.   5.1% ABV
