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.

Draft. Citrus, caramel and pine. Pretty goon, but not super special. Good, easy drinking everyday apa

brokensail (12010) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 16, 2015
On tap @ Goose Island O’Hare. Hazed golden pour with white foam. Really grassy hop nose. A little bit of citrus character and some leafy, floral hops. Kind of soapy. Fair amount of bready malt as well. There’s a lot of bready, malty sweetness to the flavor and somewhat of a muddled, unimpressive hop character. Mostly just dominated by the grassy hops. Lightly bitter.

2/12/15 - Finley Dunnes (Chicago) Draft - Nice hoppy aroma. Not very strong, very light in terms of alcohol and texture. Went down very smooth. Taste not overwhelming, and great for dining or when you are looking for a lighter good tasting beer.

BeerBunker (745) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - FEB 13, 2015
On tap at GI O’Hare. Pours golden orange with a big, fizzy white head. Aroma is of light hops, wheat, and citrus. Doesn’t smell amazing. Taste is of wheat and biscuit. Very light hop character. Very fizzy, but it goes down easy. Lingering dry, biscuity taste. It’s really nothing special, but it’s easy to drink.

AndyReynolds (972) - Dayton, Kentucky, USA - FEB 10, 2015
Draft. Did not realize this was Goose Island or I wouldn’t have ordered it. Tap handle was deceiving. Regardless, this beer is weak sauce. Brewed for the masses.

Pour on tap at the brewery, clear golden pour with white head, aroma brought notes of grass, herbal, some slight husky notes into vanilla, honey, biscuit, slight grain. Taste is a mix of honey, biscuit, bready notes into some grass, honey, finishing slightly bitter.

I thought this was adequate, like a light pale. Very lightly hopped, almost like a cream ale.

Bottle@Lou Malnati’s, Chicago. Deep golden color, white head. Hoppy aroma. Aromatic fruit flavor. Medium body, medium carbonation. Not bad.

Pretty decent, but average pale ale. Sampled this on draft at the original Uno’s in Chicago. Light copper color, good amount of hops in the nose along with bready and malty notes. The beer laced fairly nice around the inside of the glass. The body and flavors were well-balanced and delicious, with a nice amount of dry and flowery hops. I also tasted a balanced amount of bready malt in the flavors.

snoworsummer (2722) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 26, 2014
Draft at the Chicago O’Hare Airport. Pours almost clear amber with a thick, fizzy off white head. Tastes like crisp cracker malt, straw, grass, light musky dry citrus hops, some lemon, and a light sweetness. Light body and blow carbonation. Smells like biscuit malt, light corn, light citrus, and a bit musky.

nimbleprop (5339) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 4, 2014
Several 16oz pints at Frank’s Bar Chicago. Pours a clear orange with a ring of white head. Nose wasn’t so great, some cheap malt, some orange, a little cotton candy. Flavor is very weak, honey, cheap malt, orange, some biscuit, a little artificial sweetness. Slightly cloying finish.
