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 Citizens 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 nations capital. Become a Citizen of the world, one sip at a time!

KUEric's rating

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
KUEric (963) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 2, 2012
Liht orange in color, but crisp green apple, with a hint of banana in the flavors. Rather sweet and yeasty. Not much hops, rather sweet and not much standing out. Not my favorite DC Brau.

solidfunk (8358) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JAN 1, 2017
Light florals and some malt. Not a lot else here. Pours golden amber like apricots and has a bit of a tin like finish. Can at El Camino taco joint.

williamstome (1778) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 13, 2016
Gold pour, small white head. Floral, fruity aroma, with notes of banana, yeast, dough. Flavor is similarly fruity, but with a metalic/bloody finish. Weak.

BVery (10050) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - DEC 9, 2016
Tap at Washington Pour Bar near gate 45 at DCA airport. Clear gold pour with minor head. Pretty ugly actually. Looks like that morning forced pee when you are dehydrated from boostin last night. Belgian yeast, floral, candied sugar, and just the smallest hint of rotten veggies. Not worth $12 a glass at the airport, for sure.

tomer (3358) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - NOV 2, 2016
At a tasting, thanks, almost no head, lightly hazy lightish orange color, biscuity, candy, vanila aroma, with just a hint of flowers and yeast, soapy flowery flavor, with fruity maltiness, light sourness, quite smooth. Nice but not that great.

brownaler (617) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - OCT 28, 2016
Floral Belgian malt aroma with a crystal mouthfeel in the body. A bit of hops and a satisfying beer.

DSG (13811) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 16, 2016
Can sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks Alon. Slightly hazy yellow. Aroma is a bit oxidized, with fruitiness, a bit of cardboard, a bit of spiciness. Sweetish spicy and fruity flavor with cardboard, citrus, bitterish finish.

dnstone (2979) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - SEP 24, 2016
Golden color with a white head. Strong floral and spiced Belgian yeast aroma and taste. To me a typical American take on Belgian beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JPDIPSO (6042) - Wauwatosa, USA - AUG 10, 2016
Somewhat cloudy amber body, modest sized off-white head. Aromas are sweet with quite a few fruits including oranges, bananas, mango and peach. Some spiced cookie scents as well. Sweeter start leading to citrus, light banana, and mild spice. A late return of grains and bread. A touch thin in feel. A light Belgian ale.

Its OK. Its somewhere inbetween a Belgian and a pale ale...its a bit thin, though. Has a decent aroma, thin middle, and ends with a touch of the yeast that youd expect. Overall, better than macro, but not being sought out again.
