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.

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 (4239) - 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 (3301) - 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 (2780) - 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 (487) - 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 (496) - 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.

Tmoney99 (10475) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 29, 2011
Tap sample. Poured a clear golden color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate citrus, hop and biscuit malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. I would recommend this to a freind.

Garito793 (241) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 26, 2011
Definitely some spices here as well as a little bit of sweetness, citrus and cereal malts.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 22, 2011
Tasted 8/18/11. Pint draft from The Boundary, Chicago. Pours filtered and golden with an off white head. Aromas of fresh grassy hops and a mild malt bill. Hop dominant in the palate, but it still has a decent dose of toasty, tangy malts. This is actualy quite nice! A solid sipper!

UPDATED: MAY 30, 2012 Something has happened to this beer--it’s now completely unpalatable (although that may be partially from dirty lines at the O’Hare bar). Tastes like dirty feet, Svedka vodka, and disappointment.

original 8/2011 rating: tap at fizz. too dark to see color properly. a fair amount of upfront sweetness, maybe some juicy fruit gum and peach puree. the hops are wasabi and horseradishy, nicely sharp, but not particularly well integrated. the malt is too dark, giving a popcorn kernel and tamale wrapper finish. not terrible, not great. wouldn’t seek it out again, but wouldn’t turn it down either.
