COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Excel Ctira is a blonde ale that is made from simple ingredients with a light hop character. the citrus flavor is derived from the hops during the brewing process and from the addition of natural lemon and orange flavor. This makes Citra refreshing and very drinkable.

phaleslu (5889) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 17, 2013
12 oz. bottle via in-person STL trade. Pours a clear golden-orange with a small white head that dissipates quickly. The aroma has a weird sweetened cereal thing going on, with sugar, wheat, corn, and candy. Flavor of dry grains, sweetener, orange candy, and minerals. Light-bodied, with high carbonation and a dry, unnaturally sweet mouthfeel. Very odd, unnatural seeming beer.

Keir (124) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 18, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear yellow. Nose of sweet, sugary, lemons. Taste like sweet lemon, without the tartness. The name Citra is misleading and the fruitiness is not derived from the hops. Despite the commercial description speaking otherwise, this is NOT very drinkable.

thegreenrooster (3089) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 10, 2013
Pour is a cloudy yellow with a large white head. Aroma is a decent fresh citrus. Flavor is again a some citrus with a malty base. The citrus in this is not coming from the hops used like it says on the label. There is definitely some artificial fruit flavoring added. Finish is kind of tart. It’s ok for summer but I won’t need this again.

jandd1983 (2087) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUL 4, 2013
It poured a hazy, orange color with a light tan head. The aroma was quite fruity with notes of fresh cut tart apples, some bananas and cloves. The taste was similar and quite sweet, almost like some sort of candied fruit. Very nice.

Tortman18 (175) - Batavia, Illinois, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Very clear golden. Small head and no carbonation. Lack of Carbonation is Surprising. Aroma is INTENSLY citrusy and that is it. Mouth is Lemon all over. Very much like a summer shandy. Definitely something refreshing on a hot summer day, but not a good beer by any means.

Strykzone (4483) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Sampled at esbls. Clear and mid golden. No head. It smells like sugary lemonade. The flavor is of a shandy. No bitterness or carbonation. Bland stuff.
