3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2011 Bottle. Poured a hazy yellow-amber in color with a small white fizzy head that was fully diminishing in a matter of seconds and virtually had no lacing to speak of.
The aroma was quite mild but I did sense a light grain malt, a mild dose of a piney hop and a light soapy yeast with a hint of citrus and a touch of apricot.
It tasted lightly hoppy and a little sour with a note of citrus in the beginning and finished with a nice mild hoppiness and had a hint of the apricot and citrus at the end. The flavor was left lingering on the taste buds for a nice long time after the swallow allowing for full enjoyment of this brew.
Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a nice lively carbonation.
Overall a nice light beer with a good fruity finish, definitely would be nice on a hot summer day after cutting the lawn.

Woops, almost forgot this. Thanx Eric.
This was poured into a stange.
The color had a light golden orange to yellow color with a slim finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute. Lacing, uh...not really, there wasn’t anything there.
The smell had a sweet hay/grassy aroma with light sweet crisp malt in the background,.
The taste was basically the same - barely anything different.
On the palate, this one sat fairly light and came across pretty sessionable.
Overall, good American - Kolsch styled ale that I would have again, maybe not an Alaskan Summer ale, but hey I can’t get this on a regular basis and since ABC recently started distributing to Michigan, the least is giving up some of Michigan, thank you New Holland. Cheers.

Sweet hay aroma. No head. Light golden color. Mouthfeel goes from light crisp and almost clean to dry, worn and rough. Taste is agreeable, slightly salty, considerably cat urine, but enjoyably so.

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!

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.
