"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

Zarkam (532) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 15, 2014
500ml bottle from a Supermarket in Vyborg, clear yellow colour, small mostly vanishing white fizzy head, hint of lacing. moderately malty aroma of grain, bread and hay with a hint of grassy hops. Taste is initially mildly sweet with some acidity turning into a shortish mildly bittersweet finish. Medium body, slick mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Fairly generic below-average lager.

Hrc_Cro (255) - Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 13, 2014
0.5l bottle. Suprisingly good looking foam. Totally watery with no taste or aromas. Probably could drink a lot of these, but I don’t know why would I.

DwarfeD (1608) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - OCT 12, 2014
Draught at The World’s End, Camden. Clear golden with a small white head. Light to medium body. Grain, yeast and some citrus. Just a lager, nothing special.

rockana (301) - Zadar/Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 9, 2014
Pours clear yellow with minimal white head. Very little to no aroma, I could say it’s malty. But it’s water.

Senka (903) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 28, 2014
All formats. Malty water with co2. No point in bashing this beer. It is macro-lager and is holding its place. You can get a case of 24 for a price of one decent Nøgne Ø.

Mr_Pink_152 (1916) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2014
Not much to say about this bland tasteless beer. I wouldn’t spend any money to buy it. And should have turned it down a a gift.

It’s a tiny bit better than fosters. But again lacks anything good. It’s tasteless. And a waste of time .

Nice refreshing drink, which taste isn’t too strong and goes down very easily on a warm day

arsol (780) - NORWAY - JUL 24, 2014
Korngul farge med hvitt skum. Lukter mildt malt. Smaker vannete og ellers nesten ingenting. Kan kun brukes til tørstedrikke.
