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.

Draft at the pub. Pretty much what you would expect from this style. Not a terrible blonde ale or anything, but even when they are good they tend to fall short.

The menu said that this beer was 3.2% alcohol. Very good for a low alcohol beer. Crisp and clean taste. Mild maltiness with some minor spiciness and hops in the finish. Grainy flavor throughout. A little boring, but was good to cool off with after hot food.

Lofts of butter on the nose and flavor. Clean and lightly fruity with a sweet finish. I rather enjoyed the aftertaste, but not much else.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - OCT 21, 2008
Sampled at the 2008 Knoxville Brewers’ Jam. Golden in the glass with a creamy white head that leaves good lace behind. Orange peel hop aroma. The flavor finds a nice hoppy citrus. Medium body, crisp, and medium bitter throughout. Very decent.

Suttree (5132) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 12, 2008
I was surprised how much I enjoyed this one. Light and crisp, with a nice snappy hop bite. Nothing fancy, but a pretty good session beer. Sampled at 2008 Knoxville Brewer’s Jam.

Yellow, white head. My review was trying to dance around the fact that it’s actually, well, bland. There, I said it. AB&P makes a lot of great, interesting beers, but this isn’t one of ’em. Sampled at the Raleigh WBF.

Brewer’s Jam. Pours golden with a white head. Wow. I was really surprised to find distinct American hop character in the aroma. It’s not overwhelming by any stretch of the imagination, but a definite profile of lemon, grass, grapefruit, and herbal stank is present. The mouthfeel is quite light which compliments the zesty citrusy flavor. Hints of lemon, wood, and grapefruit are noted along with the crisp body. I was really impressed with this offering. Asheville Brewing claims this is a lager, though I couldn’t personally identify it as such. This is underrated.

Draught at the Coxe Ave. location. Pours very cloudy straw yellow with tiny white head. The aroma is light lemon and straw with some doughiness. The flavor is much lemon zest, raw wheat, Tang, and a pancake-like maltiness. Nothing to rave about, but decent.
