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!

arminjewell (9676) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUN 14, 2012
Pour out of 12 oz can, hazy orange pour with lots of carbonation streaming up, fluffy thick white head. Aroma has notes of sweet biscuit, bready notes, hints of yeast, slight sour grain, touch of lemon, orange, bitter grassy earth in there as well, floral notes come through. Taste is sweet orange, pear, biscuity notes, some honey and slight grass, touch of floral and earth, more sweet fruits come through, fine carbonation but fairly medium bodied. Pretty decent.

Like all D.C. Brau beers this comes in right at average. I have complete respect for them because until they arrived in NE D.C. There were no breweries and so they had to establish the local beer scene with a basic foundation of beers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A pleasant taste. A mediocre aroma. An average appearance. I hate this 75 character minimum. I just want to rate the beer for my own records. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
