1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

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.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from World Market. Pours a medium golden color. Aroma is like that of burnt grains. Bitter grainy flavors. A little bit of skunk. Getting dangerously close to tasing like a U.S. macro.

25 cl bottle. I poured the beer, and immediately thought, this smells French. It’s grassy and a little bit malty. The color was pale yellow with a medium white head that didn’t last very long. The flavor was like a sweet apple juice. The mouthfeel was thick and sticky. Overall, it wasn’t great.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottled, 250 ml. Pale yellow with short white head. Light, cardboardy eurofizz. A little crisp malt but little else to write about. Boiled off note on the finish.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2005 (Bottle 25 cl) Label simply says "Meteor" at 4,6% ABV. Fully golden with a nice, dense head. Pronounced malt and hops in the nose, but not really very bitter. Light and quenching with soft, malty flavours - and nothing much more. 140201

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Hmm..amber coloured, with a small but persistent head. The first sip suprised me, it was bitter, with some unidentifiable, but survivable flavor, which went nicely with the assault of bitteness. So I was quite optimistic when I went to finish the bottle. The optimism soon faded... the next few sips revealed just the bitterness with absolutely no flavor, just a bit of lemony sourness and some hints of caramel near the end. I might have it again...

0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 1/20
aka Meteor Lager
Corn sweet skunky aroma, light chemical bitterness. Medium amber clear with visible carbonation, white foamy head. Medium body with medium-high carbonation. Starts with a little sweetness, no acidity or bitterness. Grainy corn bitter finish, odd after. Pretty poor beer.
