Gr0ve (2128) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 5, 2008
330 ml bottle. Golden colour. Crystal clear. Small off-white head. Nice initial floral hop aroma, but it disappears after a little while leaving a slightly metallic and cloying malt aroma. Has a light and watery body. High carbonation level, but with a nice crisp mouthfeel. Finishes with a oily and bitter mouthfeel. Some nice things about it, but also was few bad. If I had nothing else I’d probably drink it again.

KnutAlbert (6012) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 3, 2008
Bottle from Centra, Oslo, among the most expensive beers in store. Pale beer with big head. Rather thin and bland. A little lemon sourness, sweet grain. Not very balanced, not very nice at all - a wonder they bother to thip and import this stuff. Alsace once had a good reputation for their beers.

Sigmund (4950) - Tau, NORWAY - SEP 2, 2008
330 ml green bottle, now available in Norway. The label only says "Meteor Bière d’Alsace". ABV is 4.6%. Crystal clear pale golden colour, big white head. Initially a citrussy and sweetish Heineken-like aroma (an American would probably say "skunky", but I don’t mind), the aroma sort of "dies" in the glass. Fairly "clean" pale lager flavour, moderately sweet and slightly citrussy, very moderate hops, not offensive but far from exciting.

Delirium (636) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2008
Bottle from the World Market mix pack. Pours clear golden with a small white head. Aroma is somewhat sweet malt, with grain and an odd milk-sugar note that I only expect in milk stouts. Flavor is a typical somewhat sweet, malty pale lager. Not bad for the style.

larsga (6140) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 30, 2008
Big offwhite shiny head leaves lacing as it slowly subsides. Brass body. Grassy rubbery aroma with milky sugar notes. Dry-acidic grainy rubbery taste with milky notes. Aftertaste is cardboard with hoppy traces. Thin body, harsh mouthfeel. Sweetish unclean background. Yuck! (0.33l bottle, Centra, Oslo.)

ABUSEDGOAT (2332) - California, USA - MAR 17, 2008
Clear golden yellow, moderate to large head, some lacnig and retention. Aroma is skunked with notes of cereal, bread, grain. Light bodied, fairly sweet. ZZZ

Seriously, you may have to go to the Alsatian region of France to get this beer, you just can’t trust an importer to get you a fresh one. I tried this beer for the first time in Koln, then came back 8 months later and went to the brewery. I drank this beer on tap and out of a bottle. Meteor has a wonderful nose, followed by an amazing carmelly middle that finishes with an aromatic fruity hoppiness perfectly blended with more caramel in the finish. Just amazing. I have not found another beer that even comes close to this flavor. Completely unique and again, if you can get some fresh, it is the best beer in the world.

DTM (798) - Winters, California, USA - JUN 19, 2007
Got this out of the Beer of the World pack from World Market. Light colored beer will a sweet taste. Thick head the quickly disapates. Not bad but probably won’t try again.

bhensonb (10777) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 24, 2007
Light grassy aroma. Ok, it’s a lager. Brassy gold color with a white head that leaves. After the carbonation is out of the way there is a light malty sweetness. There is a bit of hop, but the malt dominates the finish. Sort of a musty aspect in the long finish. It is different. Way better than Bud. Which is damning with faint praise.
