12 oz can.

The appearance and low ABV are the two things Rocket Girl has going for her. Gorgeous, straw-golden body with a light carbonation level and a hefty tuft of off-white head up top. Lots of lace left behind on my glass. The aroma is a bit off-putting, as it smells like unfermented wort with ample sweetness. A little creamed corn in for 'good' measure. Slight hoppiness.

Rocket Girl tastes a little better than she smells (hah!), with a light cracker and vegetal maltiness that quickly vanishes from the palate. She's clean, alright. Grassy hops leave traces of bitterness and cracked pepper on the back end of the sip. Mouthfeel is dry and well-carbonated with an anorexic thinness to the body. While this is certainly a sessionable brew at 3.2% ABV, I probably wouldn't want to have more than one...

Had while at the brewpub during a visit to Asheville. Served from tap into a sampler shaker. Poured golden-yellow with a half finger bone white head that subsided to a minimal amount quickly. Maintained excellent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, nutmeg, and skunk. The flavor was of sweet malt, spices, nutmeg, and wheat. It ahd a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a decent brew, but far from awe-inspiring. Every aspect of this one just seemed to be lacking so much that it wasn't even funny. I could see people playing beer pong with this one if I'm honest. Just the watered down aspect killed this one for me personally. Worth trying with dinner, but I would leave it at that...

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

THe beer is at cellar temp and poured into a pint glass.
Pours a bright clear yellow hue with fizzy bleached white head of 4 cm. The foam fades gradually to a sturdy surface layer.
Aroma is mild with some grainy malt and a bit of spicy hops. NO hint of booze and no complexity, not flawed anywhere either, just not exciting to me.
First sip reveals a very light body and fizzy carbonation. Flavor is grainy malt and some residual sweetness. Maybe a little herbal hop finish. Not complex or overwhelming. A decent lager, but not one to hunt out again.

12oz can into a pint glass.

Pours a clear gold with a one finger white head.

A nice biscuity aroma along with some cereal grains. Some floral hops are present as well.

The taste is pretty malty with biscuit and caramel. Grass and hay hop flavor along with a moderate to hight bitterness takes hold quickly and linger long into the finish. Mouthfeel is somewhat watery but that can almost be expected of a beer that is only 3.2%

Overall this beer has a lot of flavor for being such low strength. A truly great session beer.
