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.

Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JAN 8, 2013
Beer 2 Asheville trip. I actually think this was more of a Kolsch. Pale gold, aroma of malt, lightly honey in character, and faint pear. Flavor is a match. Dry, clean finish. Enough bitterness to balance. Nicely done. Should point out this one was one of my wife’s favorites of the entire trip, and she tends to be pretty picky about beers like this.

LilBeerDoctor (4194) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 1, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear yellow with a white head. Aroma of light fruits, pale bready malts. Flavor of bready malt, caramel malt, with light bitter hops in the finish. Not too sweet and easy drinking. Better than I had expected! It really is a Kolsch, not a premium lager. 6/4/7/4/14 [3.5/5]

changeup45 (1731) - Lake Mary, Florida, USA - JUL 6, 2012
At Asheville Pizza. This is pretty solid stuff for a lighter brew. Gold with a lasting white head. Cereal grains, grassy hops, bready notes. Crisp and a touch bitter and dry in the finish. Nothing amazing but a beer I could drink a lot of during the hot summers.

hman43 (1777) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - JUL 29, 2016
Light golden in appearance. Grainy and graham cracker with floral in both aroma and taste.

Suttree (6505) - 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.

Draft at the brewpub. Yellow pour. Malty cereal quality. Hint of diacetyl. Refreshing.

3.3
Drake (14078) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, 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.
