On tap at New Holland. My first try at a kolsch, ive been putting it off for a little while now. Dont know if this is the best example i can get or not, but i enjoyed it pretty well. Big fluffy head and golden color. Decent aroma, but the flavor was a lot more. Lots of grassy notes throughout, which slowly die off leaving a heavy aftertaste. Could’ve done without the huge aftertaste, but the refreshment of the initial taste will keep me coming back for more.

Bottle. Pours clear, medium yellow with moderate white head. Faint sweet, lemony aroma. Moderate level of carbonation. Not much going on for flavor. Light fruity sweetness with a slightly funky aftertaste. Overall, an okay light beer for a hot summer day.

Ahhh...I thought my life went full circle when I met Ned the Dead back in ’88. Or the time I saw Weird Al. Apparently not. But now that I have tried new Holland’s Full Circle Kolsch, I can say, without reservation "It would not be difficult Mein Fuhrer!" That’s how Dr. Strangelove would roll. And who am I to disagree with cinema’s finest action hero of all-time? So grab some Blatz and leave this stuff in your far distant past. You don’t need it. I don’t need it. And Bob Dole surely doesn’t need it!

Petkus331 (210) - Redford, Michigan, USA - JUN 7, 2014
Aroma of hay-like malt with a very faint bit of pomegranate and some corn. Appears clear yellow and bubbly with a thin ring white foam. Tastes of corn and hay with a bit of kolsch funk. Palate is ordinary. Overall, a refreshing kolsch.

Golden straw color with a lively rocky white head. Leaves some slippery lacing. Smell is light malt with slight wine-like notes, and some light crisp hops. Taste is light leafy hop and yeasty bitterness moving into clean, light malt . A tasty kolsch.

12 oz. bottle. Appearance is a hazy golden-straw color with a thick white head. Aroma is grass, lemon, a bit of earthiness, and some very mild skunk. Taste is a watery earthiness, some bready maltiness, and grassy hops. Not bad, probably pretty refreshing on a hot day.

wedgie9 (1822) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 10, 2014
Tasted on 4/10/14 from a capped 12oz bottle purchased at Craft Brewed. Pours hazy bronze with an average white head that slowly recedes to average lace with a touch of sticky lace along the inside of the glass. The nose is doesn’t have a whole lot going on with more malty bread than anything with just a touch of grassy green hops on the back. The flavor is the same non-descript light malty bread with a touch of bitterness on the grassy hops. The body is just under medium with average carbonation and a medium malty bread and somewhat bitter grassy hops finish.
