There's a lot more to say about combining beers.
When adding "grenadine" to a panaché (beer + Sprite or 7-up), you have a Monaco.
Also very popular drink was a blond beer only, with a touch of "grenadine" which was called a Tango (more a lady's drink).
Grenadine is pomegranate syrup.
Many french have simply water combined with a dash of syrup in summer. When you see a french with a vibrant red or green drink in front of his/her nose, they're having a red "grenadine à l'eau" or much more populair, a green "menthe à l'eau", water with a mint syrup. Best known brand is still Tesseire.

Whenever you try to make one, pour the beer very slowly on the 7-up or Sprite; it can foam like... a shampoo .
Did you know; our grand-mothers (I'm 65) had their hair curled using small curlers and... beer to fix their "mis-en-plis" as they called it. And, it's not a joke!
