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.

Has some nice tropical fruit scents, really light yellow in color with a frothy head. Taste is small amounts of citrus and pine, really light body feel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: JUL 2, 2012 Pale orange with a semi-frothy head. Smell and taste is yeasts, citrus hops, and malts with a slight cereal grain taste. Slightly carbonate, light bodied and very crisp. Decent pale ale, but I was expecting more of a yeast/hop kick

It was a delicious draught and I enjoyed it but my only complaint is the lack of a kick that is more typical of the goose island that I know. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A spruce type aroma, very citrus taste, like the IPA but less bitter. My favorite Chicago beer.

Yellow macro brew like pour with almost no head. Also almost no scent, little honey. Mild flavor, a little carbonation, honey hints. Bitter yeasty finish.

Draft at O’Hare across from C11. Hazy golden color. Aroma of grass. Taste is light pine and grass. Not bad.

theisti (3497) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - MAY 22, 2012
22 oz hefe type glass at the Goose Island pub by gate L10 in Chicago’s O’Hare airport. The pour is mostly clear golden with a smallish white head. Decent lace. The aroma is flat hop bitterness, along with sugar sweet malt. The taste is light fruit malt sweetness, a touch of woody hops, and a real dirtiness. Not sure how clean these tap lines are. The palate is medium bodied, lower carbonation, and finishes with the fruit sweetness, and a bit of an off yeast character. The fresh keg was better, cut the sweetness a little, though the dirty yeast / tap line remained.

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 21, 2012
Growler sent by a buddy of mine. Pours a clear golden color with white head. Active carbonation. Aroma has some dank hops and is quite perfumey. Taste is sweet with the hops at the forefront. Medium bodied with a dry finish. Sessionable.

3fourths (8634) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 20, 2012
draft at O’Hare. lighly grassy nose with mild pungent dried hop leaves and mineral powder yeast; sadly it’s unacceptably dirty and has the coarseness and fizziness of cheap Budweiser products. tastes of stainless steel and stale grains. fizzy and sourish.
