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.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 2, 2005
Mild herbal hops and grainy malts in the fairly sweet aroma. Clear golden body with low white head that lasts well and leaves a slight lacing on the glass. Light vegetal character to the grainy flavour with some herbal hop notes and soft finishing bitterness. Light body with soft carbonation. I think I’d have preferred it if this had been more assertive in some fashion. As is, it came across as a fairly wishy-washy pils. Bottle. Entered from notes.

imdownthepub (10578) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2005
Keg in Colmar, France. Amber coloured, excessively gassy, short head. Really not much to say, a distinctly unimpressive pale lager, cardboardy, soggy and completely tasteless. Poor.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 2, 2005
(Bottle 75 cl) Pilsener golden with a rather decent and stable head. Brewed with Saazer hops although they leave no obvious traces. Has an odd and unpleasant, sourish tang. Go for the ordinary lager from the same brewery - if it must be lager.... 220705

Bottle. Pale golden colour with a small white head. Malty, hoppy aroma and taste, light bitter. Medium body and a sweet light bitter finish.

chalmers (8) - Bordeaux, FRANCE - APR 11, 2005 does not count
I’ll tell you the truth - I got this at €1.23 for a sixer (baby 25 cl bottles, but still). Based on my experience with cheap brews from Alsace I wasn’t expecting much. Therefore my overall is 15, it well exceeded my expectations. It’s true, it has an aftertaste that really is unpleasant at times, but it’s not so strong as to ruin the entire beer. It has a lot of flavor. Quality-to-Price its one of the better French beers I have had lately.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - SEP 27, 2004
Light malty aroma with the typical alsace hops. Pale yellow color, white head, good lace. Malty, hoppy, medium bitter start but rather bitter and hoppy (herbal) in the finish, medium body. Not bad actually but 75cl was enough.

RichardGretton (4276) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2004
Less than sparkling lager appearance, but with a rather fruity and sweet nose. Refreshing dryly hopped flavour with a fairly sweet finish. The beer improves after each bottle drunk.

leaparsons (8258) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2003
Light buttery grain in aroma, this looks very lager-like being pale gold with a white head of foam. Flavours are thin and sweet but quite refreshing. Needs more dryness.
