Carbonated, citrus, golden toasty urine, bitter puckered aftertaste, sweet and innocent burp, sip from the center of the mouth, co-dependent/ food-friendly beer, sweet and refreshing after spicy food without becoming less complex and true to itself, is this medium-bodied?, this grew on me immensely but I'm looking forward to finishing it.

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.

Rather grainy, not much of the advertised hop expression. Honey, straw, a touch of caramel grains, wheat (flavor), biscuit, cracker, grass, light touches of citrus and pine.

Appearance: Pours a deep orange color with a strong and lasting head.
Aroma: Very minimal aroma of lemon, orange and mango.
Taste: Mildly bitter upfront. Some light orange citrus, little pineapple, and springy floral hop flavors. Very light. No resin or dankness. Finishes with a stronger honey and caramel malt backbone.
Feel: Light, crisp. Mildly bitter, but also mild sweetness well-balances it.

Overall: Kind of a weird beer here, :/ Mild would be the word to describe it. Almost every aspect of the beer seems attenuated. Aroma, flavor, hops, bitterness, are difficult to perceive. Malts are really the only appreciable aspect. It could definitely use more of a robust kick for a pale ale. Drinks more like an adjunct American lager. Definitely prefer the 312.

From the bottle, it pours a nice amber color with an off-white head that stays for awhile. In the nose, it is lightly bitter and malt. In the mouth, it is mostly malt with a little bitter.

Amber color, slightly cloudy with a small to moderate head that dissipated quickly. Fresh fruity aroma. Taste is malty and slightly bitter.

Surprisingly hoppy for a pale, subtle citrus, a little less maltiness and finish than other ales I've sampled.

This beer is one of the worst beers I’ve had. No flavor or smell. It’s like drinking Budweiser for twice the price.

Complete crap. Calling this an APA is a joke. It tastes like a bland run-of-the-mill lager. No discernable hops. I thought there'd been some mistake, but the bartender assured me that's just what Greenline was. $12 wasted at the airport. Yuck....

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Pours orange yellow with a small white head. Smells of light grain, but weak. Tastes of piney and floral hops, nice balance. Beer is light bodied and very easy drinking. Overall, an above average beer.
