For France you should try to find Kronenburg Blanche. I've been to many LCBO's trying to find it and have been unsuccessful so far. My brother had it when he was in Europe and keeps raving about it. I finally found a bistro in Burlington that has it on tap and it is pretty darn good. I'm not normally a fan of "white" beers but this was really nice. ;-D

Also, if by chance you ever find it please let me know. :-)

I used to drink them in college. Take about a tablespoon of lemon/lime juice mix pour a corona over it and top it off with a mexican version of soy sauce and drink. They were incredible if made correctly but I am not sure if that's the universal recipe or not.

I did this last weekend but my recollection is a bit fuzzy. I think that Germany won.

#1 Germany - Warsteiner is great beer.
#2 USA - The Rogue beer was something special and I'm going to try as many Rogue varieties as possible. I've already bought more Dead Guy Ale. The other beer was terrible but I made a mistake in buying gluten-free so I will take that out of the competition.
#3 Switzerland - Lowenbrau is actually brewed in Germany but it is a good beer.
#4 France - this one surprised me. I remembered Boris being a lot worse and I did not remember Kronenburg tasting this smooth or having this much character. For the price Kronenburg could become my regular beer.
#5 England - I really really like Hobgoblin and I buy it semi-regularly but the Innis&Gunn was terrible. Oak-aged beer is not a good idea and this was the most expensive beer, maybe it's an acquired taste so I'll give it the benefit of the doubt.
#6 Japan - Sapporo and Asahi are very smooth very light beers. I like them as summer beers.

Inoffensive: Brazil, Holland, Slovenia, Africa, Mexico. Brama, Heiniken, Lasko, Tusker and Negra Modelo are all blah. Nothing special about any of them. But not terrible.

Last place. The bad beers:

Italy - Moretti is just terrible. It tastes like it is just about to go skunky. I've had it many time and it is the standard taste of Moretti.
Denmark - even though Tuborg is ok Denmark is in last place because of Faxe. This is a dark beer that should never have been made. It was 7.7% so I expected it to taste a little strong but it was overpowering and ghastly.

yeah it pretty much sucks...although Heineken Dark is actully kinda good

...and if Moretti is anything like Peroni :-P
Peroni might be the worst beer i've ever had. right up there with Grolsch, Fullers ESB and some microbrew i had that tasted like dish soap...i think it might have been Mad Hatter Pale Ale or something but i remember it as Palmolive Pale Ale
