Victory Headwaters Pale Ale
I picked up a six-pack of Victory Headwaters Pale Ale from Al’s of Hampden. The beer pours a golden color with a frothy white head that laces to the glass. The aroma consists of lemon, grapefruit, grass, earthy hops, and a caramel base. The taste is smooth but a little bitter with grapefruit and pine hops. The finish has some lemon citrus accent with an earthy hop balance and a little bit of grass. The after taste, pleasantly enough, leaves some caramel flavors behind with sour grapefruit. The alcohol content is 5.1% ABV. The Headwaters Pale Ale is a wonderful pale ale with a great citrus compliment built upon a caramel base, all with an earthiness that ties it all together.
