Kolsh is not my favorite style so this beer is not that good, to me. Very bready and slightly sweet. I could see this might be refreshing on a hot as hell day though. Not my bag of tea.

Pour on tap at Crunchy’s, clear golden pour with white head, aroma brought notes of bread, biscuit, dough into some grass, slight hay. Taste was a mix of grass, bread, dough into some yeast, spice, hay, finishing slightly bitter. Decent.

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
