The difference is 2% more butterfat in European butter. It’s pricier, so I use it for special occasions and holidays. It has a more luxurious mouth feel, creamier and more buttery.

I bring French butter home with me in my travels. I find it lovely when butter is the star of the show, on toast, English muffins and such. Even in baking, sometimes it’s not noticeable unless the recipe is such that butter is the star of the show. Some people will notice but many others won’t.

I suspect this doesn’t help with your question, but I don’t think there’s a clear-cut answer.
