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.

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.

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.

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.

Definitely some spices here as well as a little bit of sweetness, citrus and cereal malts.

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.

This is a very average pale ale. Drinkable and easy going on the taste buds. Not really my thing.

Got this one as a tap pour at GI Wrigleyville. Poured as seen in the example picture. Head was very fine and pillowy, and added to the honey malt and spruce/resin hop presentation. This is what I expect from an APA, and went down very easily. Highly recommended.

JulienHuxley (3276) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - JUL 20, 2011
On tap at Wrigley. Nice clear gold pour with white head. Aroma of very light hops, something slightly metallic and off. Some grain flavors, a shy hop bitterness and a metallic/caramel finale. Palate is well carbonated and has good body. By far the least impressive GI beer I had.
