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

Cheap but not cheerful. Strong harsh grain taste and little else. Not sure how people can drink a six pack of this.

Draught. Pours a clear golden, nice head. Little aroma. Sharper taste than say budweiser. Anybody who drinks craft will be instantly disappointed!

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 (5252) - 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 (368) - 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.

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2015 Looks nice gold thick head. Aroma sweet grain taste mild sweet bitter balance doesnít taste of too much easy drinking lager.

Padchenko (125) - 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

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!!
