Brilliant gold with a fast-receding white head. Aroma is faint toasty malts and whiffs of spicy, grassy hop - clean.
Starts with a toasted grain maltiness before the hops come to play, tossing some bitterness onto the palate and faint grassy, noble-hop-spicy flavors around the rest of the mouth. Slightly thin, but I don't want a massive Kolsch dammit! Finishes with a clean, lightly toasted malt and grassy hop balanced aftertaste. No off flavors to speak of.
Very drinkable, this one! Thanks to BA Potsie for the bopple!

A medium white head settles into a thin lacing above a clearish straw golden colored beer.
A light bread like malt blends well with a light hops and yeast sourness.
The taste is on the lighter side with with bready malts and light hops that near border on sour, with a slight hint of something earthy.
There is a slight bitterness to the taste that is transferred through the light dry aftertaste and kind of stays with you on this lightish bodied beer.
A kolsch style beer that I kinda like, I think it's the bitterness and dryness coming through that sells this beer for me, I like me them hops.

Fizzy, clear, pale yellow body.
Smell is grainy with some lemon and citrus zest.
Taste is very grainy and somewhat bland, almost alka seltzer like. There's a minue splash of lemon.
Mouthfeel is clean with prickly carbonation..
It's a decent kolsch and went down easy in the Tennessee heat.

Straw to light gold in color with slight chill haze. Fluffy white head that stayed with me through the entire 12oz serving. Head leaves moderate lacing along the way. Subdued but distinct malty, bready aroma--cereals and syrup. Medium body and mouth feel. Taste is full of malty goodness with some flowery notes. Moderately dry finish. Refreshing session beer thought perhaps a bit too gassy for style.
A very nice Kolsch!

Very average beer. Golden colored with nice clarity, medium white head that retains well and leaves nice lace. The smell is of pale malts with a hint of fruity hops. The taste is bright, with fruity hints of citrus on top of pale malt. Quite watery, but crisp and refreshing. Easy to drink, just nothing to write home about.

A: Light golden in color, fairly clear, but has some haze. Thin, foamy white head leaves behind very minimal lacing and film.
S: Pale and sweet malts dominate the smell with light lemony, grassy hops.
T: Follows the nose for the most part. Pales, biscuity malts with the hops taking a larger role in taste than in nose. Crisp, clean taste.
M: For a smaller beer, the mouthfeel isn't too bad. Again, crisp and clean on the mouthfeel.
O: Chaser Pale certainly isn't my favorite offering from Blackstone, but it's not bad. I could see myself drinking a few these on a hot summer day...would make a very good lawn mower beer.

Bottle poured into imperial pint glass. Best by 4th week of 12/2011.
A- Light, pale yellow. Minimal light white head.
S- Big aroma of clean, bready malt, backed by a fair amount of hop kick in the background. Very pilsner-esque.
T- Taste is restrained v. the smell. The same bready malt flavor is there, but not as assertive. A decent hop bitterness, again similar to a pils. A slight sweetness on the finish.
M- Fairly light, easy drinking.
O- Not a bad beer at all, esp. considering the price. Also nice is that it is local, and an easy tailgating/session beer, or something that can be introductory for the non-craft drinkers.
