COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Citizen can best be summed up as "a trip around the world in a can". We start off with our classic recipe that contains American and British hops, and pair them with a distinctive Belgian yeast for a taste that brings together a little bit of everywhere. The Citizen’s nose is of delicate yet floral hops, becoming more fragrant as it warms. This, along side a sweet malt finish, strikes a wonderfully drinkable balance that will bring you all the way back to our nation’s capital. Become a Citizen of the world, one sip at a time!

BrettTaylor (457) - Radford, Virginia, USA - AUG 23, 2013
Poured from a can. Pours a light yellow color, 1 cm of white head which dissipates quickly. Aroma is floral and sweet with some spice. Tastes of light hop bitterness, citrus fruit, a hint of spices, and sweet malt. It’s fairly highly carbonated, almost effervescent. It’s very crisp and light on the palate with a short to short medium finish.

Sampled during CBC 2013. Orange pour with a small khaki head. Light yeast and esters on the aroma, citrus, light hoppiness, doughy malts. Subdued flavor, mild citrus and Belgian yeast, pale malts. Not bad.

mike5326 (807) - virginia beach, Virginia, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Poured from a cold bottle. Golden color, medium white head. Smells of rotten fruit. Light bitterness at first, transitions to nuts, strange taste for a Belgium .

MadRobin (1856) - Silver Spring, USA - AUG 2, 2013
On tap at the Olive Lounge (in the back space of Middle East Cuisine) in Takoma Park, MD. Hazy, bright golden amber with a thin off-white head and fair lacing. Mild aroma of yeast, hay, biscuit and lemongrass with a bit of earthy funkiness. Taste of yeast, earth herbal hops, white table grapes, apple cider, pear, grain and caramel. Medium body and high/medium carbonization. This beer does not initially strike you as being anything special, but if you let it warm a bit and sip it slowly, the complexity comes through. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can: Pale copper with a light haze and a small white head. Nose is fruity, esters, and yeast. Inviting. The carbonation was a little high and I ended up letting this set for a bit. A little bready with light fruitiness up front, yeast, and then more of a tropical fruit in the tail. A lingering finish. Nice session brew.
