Meteor Pils is a pilsner-style beer made with hop flowers and brewed in Alsace by Meteor.
Meteor Pils History: In 1927, Louis Haag returned from a trip to Czechoslovakia where he had discovered the Pilsen recipes for pilsner-style beers. This inspired him to create his own exceptional Alsatian pilsner. In 1931, Meteor was granted the official authorization by the Czech government to call their beer Meteor Pils.
Malt: French Pale Barley Malts
Hops: Strisselspalt, Saaz and Aramis
Yeast: Saccharomyces Cervisae type
Tasting Notes: Very distinctive and aromatic, the aroma is dominated by flowery hops. The taste expresses the noble Strisselspalt hops. Particularly light and fizzy, it progressively asserts its fine bitterness before the rich and floral aromas emerge, giving it an intense freshness. This beer goes well with seafood.
