I also vociferously disagree "lager" is lager, like there's no difference. Go Belgian, local abbey French, or German. Some Czech stuff too, with the German influence.
I was talking to a Belgian guy (Flamke side) in Qatar and I told him I disliked most Dutch beer I'd tasted, and he told me over there in Belgium they laughed at Dutch beer all the time. Belgian beer is just something else, and even their mass-produced more commercial stuff (Affligem, Leffe in particular) are exquisite for stuff you can buy in supermarkets; i.e. not locally produced/"homebrewed".
Unless a country has a lager tradition you can pretty much garuantee that the lagers they sell will be differing shades of ****..
I think that shows that the answer you gave was not to the "question" asked on the lager issue....
I do agree on the Belgian beers as there are some terrific ones and Leffe in particular but they are not French which was the original question!!
