COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is what its like when worlds collide. We too the best parts of ales - the complex flavors and body - and mashed them up with the best parts of lagers - the drinkability and crisp finish. The experiment yielded surpassingly satisfying results. The secret lies in the special Kolsch yeast and low fermentation temperatures. Effervescent and refreshing with a bright clear straw color and light fruity flavors, Rocket Girl is at one accessible, mysterious and sophisticated. She may not be your everyday gal, but she’s got one heavenly body.

bhensonb (12296) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 14, 2012
Can from Bruisin Ales. Pours slight hazy gold with a slight creamy near white head. Smells lightly fruity with some light malt. Med body. It is lightly fruity and slightly bitter. Moderately bready. Pretty Kolsch like. Finishes spicy/bitter. Not your typical premium lager.

Drake (10406) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - FEB 27, 2012
Draft at the Coxe location. Pours a clear golden color with a medium sized creamy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of toasted malts, caramel, floral hops. The taste is toasted malts, caramel, floral and spicy hops. Medium bodied. Could use some more bitterness, but still decent.

blipp (6851) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 13, 2012
Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Strange malty and grainy sweet aroma. The flavor is grainy and corny-ish. Not that good.

DiarmaidBHK (3688) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 1, 2012
Draft at Brixx Asheville. Pours yellow with a thin white head. It’s basically beer flavored beer but if I really focus I get this slight malt note. There’s a slightl oiliness in the finish. Not the worst beer in its style.

Travlr (15613) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 15, 2011
Draft. Pale yellow color, medium white head. Aroma of straw and light pepper. Taste is light straw. Average.

Braudog (5998) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 8, 2011
Draft at the brewpub. Bright and light yellow and mellow looking. Drinks with a corny aspect, somewhat kolsch-y, and I have a sneaking suspicion this isn’t really a lager. Bit maltier than a kolsch though, too. (#4291, 10/5/2011)

bubbleflubber (1978) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUN 22, 2011
Draught at Pack’s Tavern. Pours yellow-gold with a sparse bubbled head that diminishes to trace lace. The nose is of cereal and grain. Cereal flavor, with some grain and a lightly bitter grainy finish. The mouthfeel is hollow, with slightly overactive carbonation levels. A decent summer sweat buster; an easy quaff with not a lot of complexity to bog down the senses.

jhumphries69 (1034) - Tyrone, Georgia, USA - MAY 14, 2011
Draft at the brewpub. Yellow pour. Malty cereal quality. Hint of diacetyl. Refreshing.

Draft at Merrimon. Gold color with a thin white head. Scent is earthy and caramel. Thin
