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.

MartinT (8396) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 18, 2015
My Bottom Line:
This crisp, fresh and fluffy Pale Ale showcases inviting straw-like cereals upon which herbal hops add zest.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A dollop of foam covers the misty blond.
-The flavor profile is balanced.
-Drinkability on this one is as high as a good Pilsener’s.
-I don’t know if this beer is always in prime form like it was that day, but it can sure be a beaut’ once in a while, at the very least.

On tap at the brewery.

At Day of the living Ales. Way better than that disaster of a hop #6142 or #6001 or even #5248, and let’s not mention, #4548. What I did like was that it was piney and herbal and grassy depending on when in the drink. Nice. Serving: Cask

On tap a Fizz. Very easy drinking but rather thin ale. Not too flavorful. Serving: Tap

UPDATED: MAR 11, 2015 Draft at Fado in Chicago. Average pale ale with grassy hops and obvious honey notes. Dry, perfumey finish.

brokensail (12498) - 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 (848) - 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 (1037) - 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.

arminjewell (8474) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 8, 2015
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.
