SarkyNorthener (1689) - Walsall (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2014
Bottle from morrisons. Golden amber beer no head once settled. Aroma of cereal grain and pale malts. Taste is slightly sweet cereal grain and a little floral. Drinkable.

edsspoon (303) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2014
Bottle - pale golden with a thin white head which fades to a ring then to nothing. Aroma of apple juice, strangely. Taste of some light lager malts, hint of hoppiness, then some apple in the aftertaste. Light body, medium carbonation.

BlackHaddock (3480) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2013
On 13th Nov 2013 I had a little lager/pilsner tasting session with the wife: two French, a UK brewed Budweiser and two other ’craft’ UK lagers. This green dumpy 25cl bottle was the first one. Labelled as Biere Continentale and bought as a single bottle in my local Morrisons. Looked OK in the Veltins badged stemmed tulip: gold to light amber in colour, snow white head that faded swiftly. Malts in the nose and taste, not bad for a weak ABV brew. I preferred it to the other Saint Omer beer we had and the Bud (which came last score wise). I’m not saying this is a wonderful beer or any such thing, but it had flavour and although obviously cheap and mass produced it did fine against other more expensive brews. I’d love to use it in a blind tasting to see what others thought.

Leighton (10462) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2011
Bottle at home. Clear, light gold with a fizzy, white head. Grain and sugar on the nose, light grass. Lightly sweet flavor, faint malts, not much bitterness, quite bland. Light bodied with fizzy carbonation. Finishes lightly sweet, hints of cereal, not much else.

bb (6726) - Alamo, California, USA - OCT 16, 2009
Bottle. Golden-amberbeer with an off-white head. Malt and light grass aroma. Malt and hay flavor with grass and light mineral. Medium-light body. refreshing. Malt and light mineral lingers with light hay.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2007 250ml stubby from Sainsburys. Now sold as Sainsburys Biere des Flandres and says its brewed at Saint Omer. All of which preamble saves me having to write much about the beer. Which is just as well as there’s not really much to say. Pale, thin and weak. Too bland to be wholly objectionable.

imdownthepub (9954) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2007
Bottled 250ml stubby bottle, pasteurised. Sold as Asda French Lager. Yellowish with white head. Not one for savouring, poor thin, cardy, over gassed, but very cheap. Drunk in isolation as a taster yukk.

garthicus (2655) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 9, 2007
hmm, a hard one to call, tiny stubbie bottle, chemical smell and very weak taste, the upside is that it is incredibly easy to drink, chillsquickly due to the size and thinness of bottle, is swallowed in no time, and is as cheap as hell US$10 for 24 bottles so it is ideal for taking to a BBQ or somewhere where the beer will not be noticed

Gethinbeer (2114) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - SEP 21, 2006
Stubby. Yeasty but chemical aroma. Urine yellow with a thin saliva head. Taste like water with a slight yeasty hint. Bit like cardboard. Very gassy.
