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 (10805) - 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 (8030) - 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 (5967) - Newark, New Jersey, 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.

Braudog (5596) - Hampton, Virginia, 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)

beerguy101 (5277) - Newark, California, USA - JUN 3, 2008
This blond ale pours a light gold color from the tap at the brewpub. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet. A medium bodied blonde ale. The malts are fruity and sweet, with a touch of bread. Mild slightly spicy hops. Nice balance. Good carbonation. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

b3shine (5203) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 14, 2012
Draft to pint. Looks good; copper with nice head and carbonation. Smells solid; doughy with some hop notes. Tastes alright, but nothing special. Not a bad lager, but not a great one either.

Suttree (5073) - 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.
Earlier Rating: 4/28/2008 Total Score: 2.8
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.
