2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
The idea of making a Kolsch with a single malt and a single hop is intriguing, but the execution is strange. The Pilsen malt imparts an odd graininess in this form and the Saaz hop appearance is... odd. The hop note isn’t very bitter but it almost seems musty. It takes time to get accustomed to it. While I’m okay with style deviation, I found myself missing a smooth, light malt body and a crisp, clean hop note. On a more positive note, this beer is beautiful to look at. It’s cloudy and not quite straw-colored. The head is phenomenal. Full Circle’s got a pretty face and nice ideas. That’s a start, at least.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a medium, well retained, tiny bubbled, white head, with extensive lacing, over a very slightly hazy, gold (SRM 5) body......nose is light colored fruits (pear, apple), noble hops, light cereal, light sweet corn, hints of banana/bubblegum, balanced.....taste is very slightly sweet, with light fruit tones, cereal, light hop bitterness on the finish, balanced......mouth feel, light of medium, body, no alcohol, spritz, creamy carbonation. This is a reasonable representation of the style. In appearance, it is too hazy. In alcohol, it is a bit high. BJCP 7/3/14/4/7

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear golden pour with a medium foamy white head. Lovely nose of bright cracker and a wee kiss of grassy/floral hops. Smooth and crisp flavor full of clean cracker pale malt and ever so slightly bitter peppery saaz. A touch of bubblegum throws me off but otherwise there’s a bit of floral noble hoppiness that’s kinda unique.

Bottled. Golden pour. Bit of a malty bread tinge. Light caramel. Not too bad but maybe over malty for the style for some.
