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 Citizenís 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 nationís capital. Become a Citizen of the world, one sip at a time!

Tasted this at Beer World in DC while visiting, wanted to try a local brew and glad I did. Good amber color with a nice haze, frothy head and high carbonation. Smooth on the back end. ---BEARFN

Serving: 12 oz. can Total Wine Sterling. It pours a hazy orange color with a fleeting off white head. The nose has notes of pineapple, yeast, and other tropical fruit. The flavors make a bit of an unusual combination on the tongue with the tropical overpowering the Belgian notes. A little flabby on the tongue. Kind of meh for me.

Can sample. Poured hazy copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate yeast balanced aroma. Medium body with a smooth sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium balanced flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

BrettTaylor (521) - 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. Itís fairly highly carbonated, almost effervescent. Itís very crisp and light on the palate with a short to short medium finish.
