Honestly, its abhorent. I've had it twice out of the can and it only gets an almost pass because of its half predecessor.

If the Kwikie Mart has Busch or bathwater, you'll be better off.

It's lazy and abuses the clientele.

Pours a lovely, translucent straw gold with a one inch, off-whited head that slowly dissipates. Nose expresses light fruity esters and grassy notes. Taste is primarily crackery malts - not much of the nose is detectable in the flavor profile. Mouthfeel is light in body with an assertive carbonation and a crisp, semi-dry finish. Overall, a fairly drinkable APA. Not much complexity but it pairs well with food.

Dayyyymn I got fooled on this one! Came to Bub City BBQ in downtown Chicago for the Nashville Hot chicken. Saw Green Line and confused it for Greenbush out of Michigan. This is wayyyy mediocre compared to anything they put out. Turns out it's from Goose Island so that's some deceptive marketing bc nothing GI is on the tap handle.

Anyway, just another plain Pale Ale with that slightly hoppier than Bud feel and flavor. Meh. Chicken was great though!

Golden colored beer with citrus and bready malts. Easy drinking and flavorful ...overall a pretty good beer that I think that should be given at least one try.
