The "Black Label" has been dropped from the name in the UK. The brand, originally Canadian, was launched multinationally in the 1960s and since then ownership fell into the hands of different breweries in different countries. The original Carling OíKeefe brewery that developed this beer was purchased by Molson in the 1980s. Coors later purchased both Molson and the UK license holders Bass. Carling Black Label is still brewed in Canada

Itís a poor manís lager, typically the drink of choice of those that have not sampled European lagers. It has a nasty aftertaste and triggers headaches within a few pints in many people. It is only so popular in Britain because it is slightly better than most draught lagers available in chain pubs etc and is often the lowest price compared with better beers.

czar (4688) - Quťbec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 16, 2014
pours clear very pale yellow with a small slightly creamy (!) white cap, little retention and lacing. grainy pale maltiness, hay-ish, even a hint of fruity lagering notes, slightly grapey though, minerals, grass, hint of cardboard and dust. moderate carbonation, light body - tad watery, balanced grassy-herbal finish. underrated - boom - said.

Sjohnh (254) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2014
Draught pint, cold and refreshing. But not much taste and negligible aroma. Pale yellow with white head that quickly disappears. Watery and thin. Letís be fair, this is for necking on a hot day, not for noting the subtlety of flavour.

Tom303 (90) - Northumberland, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2014
Pours golden with a fairly compact head. Aroma of not loads but sweet malt, taste is light gentle malt and light bitter finish A bog standard easy drinking lager, quite refreshing served cold. Certainly there are so many tastier beers but I donít think Iíve ever had a íbadí beer. Itís ok just not the tastiest out there.

Padchenko (92) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 13, 2014
Pint and 500ml can. Pours well - golden yellow with good head. That is far as the positives go. Bland, indistinctive and weak-tasting. Would not recommend it

Tsekouratos (352) - Nea Filadelfeia, Athens, GREECE - MAY 6, 2014
Skunk in itís best! Piss-yellow color with a classic lager-style foam, not really an aroma, and a taste like rotten eggs... Aftertaste??? Yeah right!!

hohops (369) - Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2014
Appearance- orangy yellow, white head with tight bubbles. Aroma- not much, a bit of corn and cereal. Taste- bitter, thin mouthfeel, nothing much going on at all. Basically fizzy bitter water.

Had this out of a multipack can and it just wasnít good at all. It gave it an aluminium taste, its watery and has a very bland taste not much too it really! It pours yellow with a massive foamy head. It didnít go down to well for me I just didnít enjoy it at all.
