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.

I absolutely love this beer. Can get it on tap at most Buffalo Wild Wings restaurants. $3 tall draft on Thursdays means I drink a lot of this beer every week. Great session beer

A spruce type aroma, very citrus taste, like the IPA but less bitter. My favorite Chicago beer.

Draft at Jerry’s. Gold with big, foamy white head / Nose of cream, citrus, and biscuit / Medium body, soft carbonation, with good balance and dry, creamy finish / Flavors of lemon, passionfruit, cream, biscuit, and dry hops / A different sort of apa, more bready than fruity, but very nice.

A nice amber tint. Bold flavor that goes down smooth. Crisp pale ale scent. Among the better pale ales.

One of my all time favorites, Green Line is a delightful treat from Goose Island. Hoppy while not too bitter, a smooth drink that delights the senses.

Had this before a Sunday afternoon tour of the brewery on North Clybourn Ave Poured from the tap into a Green Line pint glass. The color is a a deep amber with a nice two fingers of foamy white head and some nice lacing left on the glass. The smell is a bit hoppy with some nice bitterness that has a touch of grass and some sweet sugary flavor that is switching back at forth with each sniff as to which will be on top. The taste is popping with a good hop presence that is earthy and floral with some nice sweet malt flavor fighting to even things out. There is a nice rosy flavor that comes to me and is quite pleasant. The feel of this beer is a well balanced beer with the hop and the malt taking turns to talk to your taste buds. It goes down smooth with a rather clean aftertaste but a slight hop bitterness that goes into a slapping of the lips. It may feel like a handful at first but is a really balanced beer.

Nice gold pour white head. Aroma is so clean and crisp, nice juicy hops and some good honeyed malts. Flavor is smooth, clean, so easy to drink. A great balance of fruitiness, hops and malt. Nice!

Goose Island O’Hare. Pale orange pour with a tight white head. The aroma is softly zesty and spicy with a little bit of soft juicy orange pulp as well. Lean bodied with a nice crackery malt flavour. Light and zesty with a bright fresh finish. Great balance and excellent quaffibility. A great brew really. A touch of woodiness to the bitterness that also works.

Had this on draft at the CHIRP record fair. Poured a nice amber color with a decent-sized head. Lots of hops of various varieties throughout. Tasted much like a GI beer, but much more mellow. Actually, probably the most easy drinking of their hop beers (had three as I looked over the vinyl). Definitely get this again if I see it out. A good choice.
