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 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!

radio_nowhere (1428) - 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.

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.

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.

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 (5796) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, 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.

reberiii (498) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 9, 2016
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.
