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.

Fresh grass and hay blend with subtle light fruit and floral hops in the nose. Bright golden with a firm white cap. Balanced with a light bitter snap. Medium light bodied with a bitter snap in the finish.

Draught at the Barley's, Asheville, NC. Clear golden colour with a small white head. Mild sweet malty aroma. Sweet hops, sugar, malt and mild bitterness in the aroma. Soft carbonation. Sweet aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DrSilverworm (6579) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 14, 2014
12oz can, big thanks to Alicia M for sharing! Mostly clear golden orange color. Thin off-white head. Dot or two of lace. Kind of a sweet, corn, caramel malt nose. Light body. Smooth, kind of crisp carbonation. Lightly dry. Aroma is corn, bread, caramel, light spicy peppery hop. Pretty decent balance to it, impressive flavor for a 3% beer. Light to moderate bitter taste, light sweet, more dry taste. Pretty impressive easy-drinking lager. Great flavor for how incredibly light this is. Closest thing I have to a light lager like this in Cincinnati is Cisco’s Sankaty Light, and this is way better than that. Much better malt balance, good full flavor to it.

Cybercat (3386) - Georgia, USA - MAY 23, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 30, 2014 Pours a nice clear golden with a decent white head. Aroma is crisp and malty with a fruity undertone. Crisp flavor is mainly malty, has some fruity hint and a hoppy bitter underpinning. Texture is lively if not firm. Rocket to this brewpub if you’d like one.

Had from a can during asheville pub cycle. First sip was cold And decent. Things went downhill as it warmed up. Just meh. Not my style of beer but not even good for a lager. Would not buy again. Sort of crisp, but nothing to it Flavor wise.

wnoble (1251) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 4, 2014
Pours golden with some white head. Nose is straw and light malty nose. Slightly astringent and slightly bitter. Fair. Doesn’t seem too refined.

Zywiec (2) - Missouri, USA - DEC 27, 2013 does not count
Hint of malt with a copper and light hoppy back end. Average lager that doesn’t try to do too much and succeeds at doing so.

Got it in a can at Wasabi sushi restaurant in Asheville. It was slightly fruity and overall yummy :)

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 17, 2013
On tap at the Orange Peel. Hazy medium orange pour, nicely carbonated. Tea-like hops in the nose, fairly one-dimensional and dry but that’s fine for a nicely sessionable brew during a long evening. Full bodied, crisp mouthfeel. As the nose suggest, mostly sharp and grassy. But good for what it is.

Can from Brusin Ales - pours clear gold with a white head. Aroma is grassy. Taste is spring water with a dry bitter bite on the finish. Not bad.
