COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bière de qualité supérieure, la Meteor Pils est le fruit d’un savoir-faire unique. Elaborée en 1927 par Louis Haag et son fils Frederic, sa recette authentique et exclusive marie avec art des ingrédients nobles, en particulier des houblons d’origines tchèque (Saaz) et alsacienne (Strisselspalt). Sa robe jaune pâle est couronnée d’une mousse abondante et aérée qui promet une dégustation toute en finesse. Particulièrement légère et pétillante, elle affirme progressivement sa fine amertume avant de s’épanouir en arômes riches et floraux et de procurer une intense fraicheur.  « Meteor pils is a superior qualitu beer and the result of a unique know-how. Made in 1927 by Louis Haag and his son Frédéric, its authentic, exclusive recipe is a skilful combination of nole ingredients, particularly hops from the Czech Republic (Saaz) and Alsace (Strisselspalt). Its pale yellow colour is crowded by an abundant, airy head that holds out the promis of great finesse. Particularly light and sparking, it gradually asserts its smooth bitterness before opening up it rich, floral aromas and offering an intense freshness.
