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.

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 (3874) - Trois-Rivičres, Quebec, CANADA - 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.

Pailhead (5376) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JUL 17, 2011
On tap: The aroma consists of is lightly citrusy with a hint of grapefruit. It pours a transparent amber with a small white head that leaves singe spotty lacing behind. The flavor starts lightly citrusy. The finish has light lemon peel and a grapefruit. Light-medium bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, easy drinking, but a tad on the light side.

ekoerper (592) - Iowa, USA - JUL 15, 2011
Aroma is floral hops, slightly yeasty, bready and light caramel. Pours crystal clear golden, white head with good retention and lacing. Very clean flavor, light bitterness, delicate citrus hops, grainy and slight malty sweetness to balance the hops. Light body and medium carbonation. Easy drinking, very decent.

ilovedarkbeer (2386) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 4, 2011
Pours a yellowish red color with a small bubbly off white head. Earthy astringent and dirty tasting with some green hop notes. Not a huge fan.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUL 3, 2011
Draft. Poured a clear medium orange color with a creamy white head. Smelled of mango, citrus fruits, and bready, pale malt. Light to medium bodied and slightly sweet. Carbonation was lighter than I had expected imparting a relatively smooth mouth feel. I tasted honey-touched cereal grain, caramel, and light flowery hop.

On tap at Uncommon Ground. I honestly didn’t like it the first time I had it. But lately it’s become a staple. Pours golden with a foamy white head. Light citrus aroma. Big flavor for a pale, good amount of hops with a dry finish. Bitterness of an IPA. Strong carbonation on the palate. Solid Pale from Goose.
