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.

armando629 (2456) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 13, 2008
Golden yellow color with a small white head what diminishes quickly. Malty and yeastly nose. Sweet malt and a little hop in the flavour, dry aftertaste.

junon (430) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - DEC 31, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2009 Smells and looks typical of a decent Pilsner. However the taste is where it differs. I just have no comparison. Its not good though.

hopdog (11560) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 13, 2007
33cl bottle. Poured a medium and hazy golden color with a smaller sized white head. Aromas of corn and grainy. Tastes of the same. Somewhat buttery as well. Thin body.

littlecarp (135) - Redding, California, USA - JUN 14, 2007
Big foamy head that leaves decent lacing. Aroma is skunky, chemicals with some light hints at bad hops. Initial flavor is actually pretty malty with some salt.sour notes and a trace of bitterness. The malt flavors dominate the finish. Despite the aroma, it’s not entirely terrible. I wouldn’t buy it again, but I’m not gagging.

swanmann (734) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - APR 9, 2007
I’ll say this is what I’m drinking because the picture to the left is the most similar to my 11.2oz bottle. Can’t really ever trust a beer in a green bottle. Skunky aroma from the start, w/ corny malt notes. Watery w/ a very light peppery taste, little bit of a yeasty mouthfeel. I hope this was an old bottle. DON’T INVEST IF DUSTY.

Hildigöltur (5105) - København, DENMARK - APR 8, 2007
Draught somewhere in Paris. Golden coloured. Bready malt aroma with some hops. Bready flavour with a dry and hoppy finish. Clean and refreshing. Medium bodied. Medium carbonation level. A quite solid and very pleasant pilsener.

Geiserich (4122) - Linz, AUSTRIA - MAR 26, 2007
Bottled: Quite unremarkable, light hoppy aroma. Flavor is light hoppy, notes of hay and flowers. Touch of acid. Astringent finish, light bitter. Not complex but drinkable.

stubby (334) - Santee, California, USA - JAN 5, 2007
This one gets an extra half point or so for timing. Enjoyed after moving a heavy leather couch and breaking a glass slider in the process. Sweet for a "pils," probably from adjucts. Slightly acidic, lactic mash? Certainly better than macro brews here in the states. I could drink this all day on a hot one.
