In this beer blog, we are going to sample the old but new 312 Urban Pale Ale from Goose Island Brewery.  If you read my earlier beer blog posts, you know the history of this Midwest Craft Brewery.  If you have not, please, read them to get to know Goose Island Brewery.  Let us get into their new Urban Pale Ale.

This pale ale has a clear copper color with a nice white constant head.  The aroma has a touch of caramel with a nice citrus notes.  The taste is citrus notes with citrus dry hop aftertaste.  It is a pretty drinkable beer.

Here is a description from the beer bottle:

We are from the city that invented the skyscraper. We constructed our Urban Pale Ale on a balanced malt backbone, so the citrus hop aroma and crisp flavor can stand tall.

In the end, if you lived or visited Chicago, you might have had a beer from Goose Island called Green Line Pale Ale.  Green Line a nice drinkable and session pale ale.  They brew the beer with everything in the Chicagoland area or the state. It was only available in Chicagoland area.  There has been rumors for a very long time that they were going to package it.   They ran into production issues because of lack of supply to the market.  The demand of their beer went right through the roof.  They were sold to ABInbev to expand their brewery and keep up with demand.  Years went by and I moved back to Michigan.  I was sad because no Green Line here because of the exclusive to the Chicagoland market.  Here is 312 Urban Pale Ale.  I have to say it is nice drinkable and crushable beer.  I love the aroma and taste profile.  This is a great American Pale Ale.  They might have used different hops but they act the same way as the hops in Green Line.  Hello, Green Line in package and welcome to the rest of the country.  I highly recommend this beer.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/

Cheers!
