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.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
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.

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.
