COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
250 or 330ml bottles. May be called just Meteor, or Meteor Biere d’Alsace, Meteor Lager, Meteor Biere De luxe, or Meteor Export.

Meteor Lager est une bière légère, désaltérante et qui a du goût. Dégustez-la entre 7 et 9°C et découvrez sa mousse abondante, sa robe dorée, son caractère mêlant rondeur et amertume légère… C’est une bière généreuse et conviviale, à savourer à n’importe quel moment de la journée.

Meteor Lager is a light, refreshing beer with plenty of taste. Serve it between 6 and 8°C and discover its abundant head, golden colour and its combination of fullness and slight bitterness. A hearty, convivial beer to be enjoyed at any time of day.

yngwie (14008) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 19, 2008
Bottle, 4.6% ABV. Unsurprisingly, it pours a quite pale golden body under a small off-white head. Weak aroma with some artificial lemon initially, followed by grains and some citrusy hops. It’s not bad, it just gives an artificial impression. Effervescent, medium body with citrus, pale malt and a hint of metal flavor. It finishes with artificial lemon and some maltyness. There’s also some bitterness, quite appropriate level for the style. Easy to drink, but it would probably be challenging to drink more than one bottle of it. It’s too artificial-lemony. (081019)

tarjei (1954) - Bryne, NORWAY - SEP 29, 2008
33 cl bottle, as «Meteor Bière d’Alsace», bought at Vaaland, Bryne. Abv is 4,6%. Clear golden color, fine but disappering white head. Aroma is weak citrus, malt and hops. Flavor is watery with some malty sweetness and hints of bitterness.

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 20, 2008
330 ml bottle. Foamy white head. Shiny pale golden color. Cereal aroma with a whiff of dusty hops. Light sweet grain flavor. Dry, mineralic. A hint of bittering hops. Thin, quite crisp. Not offensive, and certainly not exciting.

illidurit (2172) - Petaluma, California, USA - SEP 10, 2008
Poured into a pilsener glass. Pale gold with a head that shoots to immense proportions, then shrinks back down to about 2 solid fingers. Leaves some excellent lacing, unheard of for a pale lager. Aroma is corn sugar and grain with no hops. Flavor is thin and metallic with a sweet cracker malt base and adjunct sweetness. Paper thin and refreshing. Crisp and clean, but ultimately another boring pale lager.

Gr0ve (2155) - 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 (6267) - 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 (5307) - 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 (6309) - 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.)
