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 Lineís pleasant, crisp bitterness.

tap at a Giordanoís - I had this one awhile back with some excellent Chicago style pizza. It poured golden with a medium sized white head. The aroma was of light, bready malt with a hint of hops. This light bodied brew had some mild hops bitterness and sweet, light malts. Itís okay but rather bland and underwhelming.

Slightly hazy orange pour nice off white head. Aroma hops and citrus quite mild. Taste sweet caramel grapefruit, citrus, biscuit. MF light medium body mild carb very easy to drink. solid session brew tasty but nothing to special.

The beer is a clear light gold with a big two finger white head. Great retention and lacing. The head just sticks to the side of the glass, falling in chunks. The aroma is super light, a little hops and honey, but thatís about it. The taste is also super light. The list this as a sessional which is an apt description. I expect a pale to have a little bitterness, and there is no hops here. Its ok to drink, but really pretty boring. Its similar to an American macro but no skunk which is nice and surprising. Itís a nice stepping stone for a novice craft drinker, but childish and boring for the more advanced.

This was a good example of a pale ale (american)). Orange color, hoppy, spcy finish. Noticeably hops of different character. Woods and pine notes on aftertaste. This may contribute to a barrel aged brew a couple months? Definite citrus notes.

On tap of course. Pours a light hazy orange with a small white froth. Aroma is hoppy, mostly citric with a touh of pine and a definite grainy note some sweet doughiness. Flavor starts witha sweet caramel and bready character before opening up with some citric and a touch hebal hops. Finishes a touch bitter though still very sweet and a lingering graininess. Medium body and a sharper carbonation. Okay, decent pale Ale balanced but nothing stands way out.

On tap: Pour is a nice golden color with a frothy white head that retains fairly well. This, to me, was a welcome respite from Stone Pale. Light biscuits are present with a juicier than expected citrus note. Sure, its slightly boring but it really works fairly well.

Golden yellow pour with a small white head. Decent lacing. The aroma is mellow but pleasant, with cirtusy hops and grainy malt. There is a nice balance of sweet and bitter in the flavor, with biscuity malt and spicy, citrus hops on the finish. Light bodied with moderate carbonation.

Nice mild hoppy aroma and golden color with mild head. Easy drinking, great session beer. On my 4th one on tap at the local bar and plan on many more.

Two drafts at the Monkís Tap in Chicago....smooth, mild hops and light malts....very smooth; crisp....definitely, as GI asserts, a smooth session beer....will do it again...
