"The great balance of taste and refreshment". Britain’s best selling beer since 1971.

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 O’Keefe 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

MarkoNm (1894) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - MAY 24, 2015
Pours clear golden color, topped with a medium foamy white head that soon settles down. Malty aroma, some notes of grains and a bit grassy. Sweet, a bit watery, almost no bitterness to speak of. Dry finish with a bit metallic aftertaste. Not unpleasant, just not that good.

Not bad considering its dirt cheap, Its not fair comparing it to a more expensive lager, you get what you pay for

Absolute piss that wouldn’t even grace your toiled bowl. Anybody who wants to drink this god forsaken urine of a donkey...then you should be put on a plane to the middle of the Pacific Ocean and never return.

YantarCoast (580) - Moscow, RUSSIA - MAR 27, 2015
500ml bottle. The first British beer to be brewed under licence in Russia... is Carling. Haha. Pours gold with a surprisingly thick head that lasts pretty long. Aroma is sweet and grainy. Taste is similar. Seems worse than the UK brewed version.
