Had this on 2017-04-17 in Warrenville, IL on tap at Buffalo Wild Wings.

A - Clear straw with a 1-finger white head and decent lace.

S - Biscuit and mild citrus. Not much going on.

T - Lightly-roasted white bread, mild citrus, grass. Low bitterness

M - Light body and medium-high carbonation.

O - It's OK, well made but bland.

Pours golden orange. Short, foamy, white head, light lacing and short-lived head.

Smells malty, light hops, light grassy, Light pilsner.

Taste sweet bready malt, some earthy and grassy hops andLight floral. bitter finish and bitter linger. Linger doesn't have any characteristics other than bitter. Light to medium body and fizzy medium carbonation.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Look: Pours a golden orange hue with a one finger, eggshell colored head. Leaves no lacing, poor head retention.

Aroma: Faint on the nose. Sweet with notes of baked cornbread, brown sugar and caramel. Not much in the way of hops.

Taste: Watery, not very flavorful. Has a dry, slightly bitter, but mostly sweet flavor of savory caramel candy and malted grains. Some notes of vanilla, honey, orange zest and ginger hiding throughout. Almost like a pumpkin ale sort of thing going on after a while.

Feel: Light, very thin body. Moderately carbonated.

Overall: Sampled out of Goose Islands "Flight Case" variety pack which offers several of their flagship beers (312 Wheat Ale, Their Standard IPA, and Four Star Pils). Their Green Line Pale Ale was probably my least favorite so far, it lacks character and has very little body. That being said it isn't offensive to the palate or anything, it's just not something I would repurchase in the future.

A pretty mediocre pale ale that seems to be more like a lager. Aroma is slightly floral. Taste is a little citrus, too much malt backbone and a bit watery. Finish is a bitter watery feel and this is a miss as far as being a tasty pale ale
