From a sampler: Pours a clear gold color with a thin white head. Barely-there hops aroma. Mild and smooth, like most beers of the style. Not particularly impressive, as the hops flavor is elusive. Finish is a little watery. Maybe good on a hot day but otherwise not really worth it.

Blackstone Chaser Pale Ale
12 oz bottle
Recent brewing, chased down 05/07
Medium pour in an English Pint

Poured a slightly hazy gold with a medium white somewhat lasting fizzy head.

Smelt of moderate lightly toasted white bread, and light flowery hops.

Taste was upfront moderate bitter grassy hops and sweet bread followed by a moderate bitter doughy yeast and hop grassiness on an average length finish.

Palate was light to medium bodied, slightly oily, sparkling, and lightly astringent and metallic on the finish.

Overall, this isn't the best example of a Kolsch I've ever had. The finish and the metallic twang is somewhat bothersome. I just wish it was a bit more rounded and hoppy.

A pretty good take on the Kolsch style. Very light and laid-back, with moderate hops bittering and not a lot of malt presence. Easy drinking, but not particularly memorable.

Pours a really light fairly hazy yellow, thin but attractive head.

Smells a little wheaty, maybe slightly tangy...kinda dull.

Taste is lightly sweet, a little hoppy for a kolsch, spicy and floral hops, mild flavors overall.

Mouthfeel is really good, crisp and very refreshing.

Decent beer. 6.3/10

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.

Appearance: clea pale yellow in color with a 1/2" head that falls apart immediately. A few spots of lace dot the glass during the session.

Smell: grass and apple tones are very weak and soft. Tough to pick up any aromas by the nose.

Taste: mild malt sweetness, green apples, pears, and grass are all very mellow on the flavor front. Some very weak bitterness balances the weak sweetness.

Mouthfeel: crisp on the tongue throughout. Light in body. Clean aftertaste.

Drinkability: very dull and medicore at best on the drinkability scale. After drinking 1/2 the pint I lost interest. Good beer for a typical macro fan.
