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.

On tap at multiple locations over the past year or two, but rated from a keg at our St Patty’s day party. Didn’t realize I’d never rated this, actually. Pours a clear, golden-copper colored body with a finger-width, frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is crackery, slightly bready pale malts with a good amount of lemon and grapefruit grassy hops. Flavor is similar. Crisp, grassy grapefruits and lemons up front before a light pale, crackery, grainy malt comes in to balance. Finishes clean and dry with a medium-light bitterness and a fairly lengthy aftertaste. Light, crisp body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a fairly simple, straightforward, sessionable pale ale. Crisp, clean, and easy drinking with enough of a hop backing to keep things interesting. Always a go-to when the selection is limited.

On tap. Pours a near clear sappy orange with a white head that lasts throughout the beer and laces. Aroma has notes of sweet grain and sweet gays with a light backing grassy hop note. Flavor begins sweet with cookies and is joined by some earthy grain and grassy hops.

I had this on-tap at Buffalo Wild Wings in Shorewood, IL for $6.00 in early 2012. Pours a cloudy copper orange color with a fluffy head. Scent is slightly wheaty with a hint of hops. Taste is crisp and slightly bitter with hints of sweet citrus. Finishes smooth and slightly dry. Rather quite refreshing for a spring beer.

From notes. First reviewed 12/18/2010. Served on tap in a pint glass. Green Line pours a hazy amber color with a modest, creamy, white head. The head fades to a ring but leaves some nice lace on the glass. This aroma smells like is was hopped a bit further than 312, so I was pleasantly surprised. Sugary and caramel biscuity malt, some light grapefruit citrus, and some pine hop aroma as well. The taste starts with a soft sweetness to accompany the biscuity malt. There is no dry crackery taste, simply a fuller bready flavor. Grapefruit leads into pine hops to finish the flavor. The feel is creamy in a relaxing sort of way, with a lighter than medium body, and medium carbonation. Light hop oil resides on the tongue after each sip. I like this a bit more than 312; it just has more character. Still better examples of the style out there.

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.

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.
