I got this as part of an M&M 6pk from Woodman’s East in Madison, WI in summer 2012.

Pours a clear, pale amber color with not much of a head. Scent is slightly malty with hints of grains but that’s about it. The taste is uniquely malty. It starts out light, crisp with hints of citrus but finishes kind of dry and chalky. A pretty decent kolsch style brew from New Holland.

This beer pours a clear, bold yellow with a fluffy white head and no lacing. The aroma is lemony with hints of grass and wheat. The flavor has a mildly bitter beginning followed through with typical kolsch notes of lemon, cake, and grass. There's a bit os sweet malt ih there but not much. It has a light mouthfeel and a dry finish. New Holland Full Circle is a decent beer, a little different, but typical kolsch. Recommended.

Poured a light golden colour with a small white head.

The smell was pretty weak but I could get some sweet grains and bread.

The taste was much like the smell, there was some hop bitterness and a little grassiness.

The mouth feel was medium with medium carbonation.

Overall a pretty boring beer with a weak flavour and smell, won't buy again.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Appearance: high carbonation, 1 inch head, gold in color, clear

Smell: bread and wheat

Taste: florals dominate, with a touch of bread, honey, and wheat

Mouthfeel: sweet but not overly so, medium-high carbonation, very light body

Overall: Kolsch is rarely a style that blows me away. However, New Holland's enry is perhaps my favorite example of the style I have had to date. The beer is very floral and there is a distinct breadiness. The lightness makes this an excellet beer to have several of on a hot summer's day. Nothing overly complex, but very flavorful. This would be close to a 4.0 if I was not trying to grade to style.
