COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Green Line Pale Ale is a honey-colored, immensely sessionable American pale ale with a pronounced, bright, American hop aroma and citrus flavor. Notes of biscuit and lightly toasted malt create the backbone for Green Line’s pleasant, crisp bitterness.

One of my all time favorites, Green Line is a delightful treat from Goose Island. Hoppy while not too bitter, a smooth drink that delights the senses.

draft. Never liked the lime pale ale - tried at the tasting to see if I missed something - nope!

Date: December 14, 2011 Mode: Draft Source: GI O’hare Description: Clear golden with some head and lacing. Aroma is citrus and sweet malt, taste is similar with sweet start, then citrus and a slight bitter finish. Some carbonation and light to medium bodied.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - NOV 28, 2011
Pours light golden with a thin off-white head. Notes of citrus, bitter orange peel, sulfur and coarse leafy hops. Medium bodied, lightly resinous with moderate carbonation.

Beerman6686 (4333) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 15, 2011
This poured a dark yellow to lgiht orange color with a beige head. Aroma was crackery and biscuits, with medium to light citrus and grassy hops. Flavor was a very balanced pale ale, not really hoppy, but enough bittering balance to keep it from being malty. Decent.

mansquito (3386) - Nueva York, New York, USA - OCT 10, 2011
Wellington’s, Chicago tap ($3): Pours a copperish color with a nice white head (I think the picture is just fine). Aroma is a whole bunch of citrusy hops and some sweet malts. This is a very drinkable beer and basically defines an American session without doing anything at all extraordinary. In short, it is a well balanced beer with a moderate hop presence and enough sweetness and spice to be palatable to virtually any kind of beer drinker.

BOLTZ7555 (2799) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 2, 2011
Again, tried this at the Clybourn location. 10 karat pour with a small ivory head that left a ton of lacing. Aggressive and hop forward, specifically when you look at the ABV. Nose of bright citrus rind, sharp pine, and caramel. Flavor has just a touch of honey for balance along with lemon grass, and grapefruit pith. Medium mouthfeel with ample carbonation.

Dragonfly1 (494) - Colorado, USA - SEP 17, 2011
Redstone with dad. Medium yellow color, floral in citrus aroma. Sweet grapefruit and citrus flavor right away. Lighter in flavor and body. Actually pretty nice when you just need a beer but want to keep it simple but flavorful.

Vir4030 (515) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 31, 2011
Pours a light gold with a thin head. Aroma and flavor of alcohol. Screw a-b. Decent beer. Get it before it’s watered down.
