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!

Can - from sampler pack. Medium golden, slightly cloudy. Malty aroma with a slight sour note. Very sweet malty - definite Belgian flavors.

Can. Hazy tangerine with a foamy head of white that recedes quickly. Aroma is a little grainy, with sharp pepper, dried orange peel and very faint Belgian esters. The flavor’s petty similar, though there’s a little more Belgian banana and pear offset by pepper and dried hop bitterness. Dry, crackery finish. The body’s a bit heavy and viscous, but balance between hop bitterness and malt sweetness keeps things drinkable.

Presentation: It was poured from a 12 oz can into a tulip glass. Appearance: The body has a light hazy body with a small white head. The head quickly fades out completely. Smell: It’s aroma is light with notes of honey covered cereal and fresh white bread. Taste / Palate: The flavor is sweet and bready with hints of orange peel. It also has just the slightest hint of grassy/floral hops in the background. The palate feels smooth and very lightly carbonated. Overall I don’t get much in the way of a Belgian style ale.

This was poured into a chalice. The appearance was a hazy bronzed orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about less than forty seconds. Concave lacing rings around the glass in a mess sort of way. The smell had a spritzy sort of spiced orange juice and orange peel. Slight floral and grassy qualities roam about but mostly in a separated sort of weird way. The taste was moderately sweet with an ample spice and a slight sweet grassy to semi-sweet bubblegum here and there. A semi-dry sweet finish ends the taste. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a good sessionability about it. The carbonation seemed good for the style and for me. Dry fruity notes roll over my tongue. Overall, I say this was a good Belgian pale ale.

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.
