zacgillbanks (5001) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2017
Brasserie French Lager from Aldi, Washington. Pale golden coloured with a thin white head. It has a slight herbal grassy flavour with toffee, lemon, malt and a bitter-sweet finish. Good for the low ABV.

ManVsBeer (9707) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2015
Bottle called Biere Continentale from Sainsburys. Clear golden colour with a carbonation and a very small bubbly head. Some aroma, not much taste and a weak body.

Bottle thanks to sarky northerner. Golden no head. Aroma pale malts cereal grain taste same sickly sweet. Thin watery. About as bad as the 0% piss water. My mate swears by this stuff but then he is the tightest bugger I know!!!

edsspoon (892) - 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 (6964) - 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). Im 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. Id love to use it in a blind tasting to see what others thought.

Leighton (20519) - 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.

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 (7533) - 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 theres not really much to say. Pale, thin and weak. Too bland to be wholly objectionable.
