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!

radio_nowhere (937) - Maryland, USA - JAN 28, 2013
Can into snifter glass. Golden color with reddish hue and white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast [bannana/citrus fruit, spices (clove, some pepper)]. Taste is the aroma, bready with some earthy hops to balance the sweetness. Medium body, creamy and smooth. Interesting brew, not my fav from DC Brau but not bad.

SG111 (233) - - 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.

Ottertheoracle (2) - Maryland, USA - DEC 8, 2014 does not count
golden, white foam, perhaps too complex not getting it to blend perfectly. Yeast.

Artichoke (81) - California, USA - NOV 19, 2014
Lemon yeast malt aroma. No head, this a kind of mixed beer. You can taste the Belgian yeast, but something is not quite right.

rosenbergh (7511) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 29, 2014
12 oz can. DOB 08/15/2014. (Chevy Chase Liquor) Washington, DC.
Slightly cloudy golden colour with a tiny white head. Honey sweetness, mild yeasty notes and malt in the aroma. The flavour is yeast, yeasty bitterness, honey sweetness and malt. Not that great Belgian blonde.
