Goose Island Beer Co. “Green Line Pale Ale”
$11.25/20 oz. on tap @ Harry Caray’s Shortstop, Chicago Midway International Airport, Chicago, IL

Look: A hazy deep amber colored body is capped by a short head of white foam. The head retention and lacing are both average.
Smell: Bready malt with a limited touch of lightly citrusy hops in the background.
Taste: The taste is far fuller than the aroma suggests with honey and caramel notes within the sweet and bready malt. It’s fruity with apple and a hint of orange, and lightly spicy with some underlying pine. A firm bitterness equalizes the sweetness mid-palate bringing it to a semi-dry finish as the malt steadily erodes to eventually leave bitterness and some dull earthiness lingering.
Feel: Medium bodied and dextrinous with a soft, moderate carbonation.
Overall: Not the best beer from Goose Island. The basic flavor is good but it’s blocky and the aroma is lacking.

Got dam, this is a 12 year old brand? And I'm only just now having it at Harry Caray's Shortstop in Midway Airport for the first time?!

The barely foggy amber body builds a persistent and level off-white head.

Really malt forward, nutty and only slightly hoppy, it's more amber-like than I'd expect, with a firm carbonation running through its medium body before finishing a tingly semi-dry.
