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!

Canned: unk - earlier Nice hazy honey colored ale with a solid sheet of fine whites atop. Smells like grain, sweet grain, pears, flowers, some grass and a little biscuit. Smells fresh, I dig that. Flavor is sweet initially with a good floral character with some juicy fruit, some grain and dough. Like the flavor too. A little fuller bodied than I’d dig, but with the softened carbonation, it has a nice feel overall and an unobtrusive finish. Nice beer, surprised and satisfied.

thought this was highly drinkable, and appropriate in every way. creamy and thick and sudsy on the tongue. Belgian Abby spice tasted and seen in brew. easy sweetness and not overpowering yet not a timid offering. good stuff. light orange look to it.

Hazy peach pour with a thin white head. The aroma holds tons of banana, citrus dough, banana, bubblegum, and wheaty dough. Medium body with medium carbonation and a grainy finish.

Hazy gold appearance with a small white head and light lacing. Yeasty aroma with a touch of soft fruit. Moderately hopped taste, with sweet malts up front, some breadiness, melons, and a bit of pepper in the aftertaste. Medium bodied, moderately carbonated mouthfeel leading to a lingering finish.
