Got this in a bar downtown.

Appearance: Not really that amazing, it might have been the pour. Has a very thin head that dissipates into near invisible lacing.

Smell: Floral hops and a corn-like scent.

Taste: Follows the nose a bit: has a light floral hop profile and a crunchy corn malt taste. Overbearing alcohol flavor and a metal twinge that accompanies it.

I've had better tastings of Green Line. I'm going to order it at another bar and I might revise my review a bit. This experience was sa real disappointment.

Serving type: on-tap

A- Came to me a brilliant and slightly hazy gold in color. Good touches of orange and copper in the color of the body with a good, thick head of about 2 fingers that retained all day. Lacing was also very good for the plastic cup it came in.

S- Hoppy and citrusy right up front, but not overly so. Good notes of both pine and citrus, but a somewhat orange-like scent was most noticeable. Nothing over the top as far as bitterness and hop character, but enough to satidfy my hop craving of the moment.

T- Starts off with a mild and citrusy hop punch that quickly introduces a malt backbone. Balance is struck with a mild hop presence throughout the entire drink and the malt just lying low providing enough sweetness to let the hops roll.

M- Light to medium weight across the palate with good carbonation and great drinkability. This is a sessionable pale.

Overall, this beer is solid and deserves respect. Frankly, this should have been introduced nationally instead of 312 Urban Pale.
