Rocket Girl Golden Lager
Rocket Girl Golden Lager is a lighter beer with
complex body and flavors of an ale combined
with the drinkability and crisp finish of a lager.
Special Kolsch yeast with low fermentation tem-
peratures. Crisp flavor with light fruit finish. Hint
of biscuity malt and grassy aromas.
Lovely deep golden color. Front is dry and some-
what sweet. Middle is smooth and filled with
subtle barley. Finish is where the alkaline bite of
the hops hit you, although this is restrained. Af-
tertaste is very pleasant with malt, adjuncts and
very light hops. Refreshing.
Fort Collins, Co
Opening Brewery in Asheville
Named in honor of our co-founder’s bike trip
through Europe, Fat Tire Amber Ale marks a
turning point in the young electrical engineer’s
home brewing. Belgian beers use a far broader
palette of ingredients (fruits, spices, esoteric
yeast strains) than German or English styles. To-
gether with co-founder, Kim Jordan, they traveled
around sampling their homebrews to the public.
Fat Tire won fans with its sense of balance: toasty,
biscuit-like malt flavors coasting in equilibrium
with hoppy freshness.
