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!

Fresh and bright on the hop side of the equation. A little flat on the malt side and not terribly balanced at the finish. The yeast gets a little confused amid the hop citrus. There is plenty of interest here, but too much to allow focus.

ordybill (317) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Poured from a 12OZ can into a pint glass. Aroma- slight hop aroma with a sweet finish. Appearance- a murky golden yellow with a very small white head. Taste- clean and slightly hoppy, very little bitterness. Palate- a medium bodied brew eith light carbonation. Overall- not a bad beer, my first from this brewery.

Flavors were very muted. Some Belgian yeast in the nose and taste, but not much else going on for me. Basically, a big let down.

SG111 (301) - New York, USA - DEC 24, 2014
Canned. Pours a clear golden color with a white head. Aroma is banana, clove, honey, malt, little bit of wheat. Flavor is a little more hoppy than expected, but very welcome. Banana, clove and wheat. Little bit of orange and lemon. Nice bitter hop finish. Overall really nice. Not sure why it’s ranked so poorly.

Can. Cloudy copper pour with a finger of white head. Tropical fruit, yeast, hop. Medium body. crispy watery finish. A bit more body would be better
