"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

Probably the first beer I ever tried. Clear yellow in appearance, small white head. Aroma is a little grainy but fairly weak. Taste, roughly what you’d expect from this kind of thing, nothing interesting to write about, a bit of malt/corn flavour. Not bad overall, just average though. (old rating, around 2007)

Sample from a can liberated from a train in Waterloo by Leighton. Thanks? Crystal clear yellow with a lasting pure white head. Aroma is odd mix of metalic, paper, veg and cider apple notes. Later a little soapy note developes on the nose. Flavour is composed of watery grains, carbonic acid, veg and metal. Palate is very light papery, carbonic acid bite. Shitty cheap lager, doesn’t get much shittyer or cheaper than this.

This is another beer I used to drink when I was student. Good carbonation and quire refreshing when cold. Not quite like “beer” or “lager“ Not much character in it. Actually it somehow tasted like a tomato “Dolmio” pasta sauce.

Towey1989 (1663) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2015
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2015 Can. Pours a clear golden colour with a fizzy white head. Aroma of sweet grain, cereal, corn and subtle grass. Taste of grain, corn, diacetyl and subtle grass. Light bodied and fizzy carbonation. A dry, grassy, slightly vegetable finish. A below average lager, best drank from the can.

Lager pâle quelconque sans intérêt, désaltère mais reste peu agréable en bouche. Bue ci et là en bouteille ou à la pression.

Cunningham (6772) - Halden, NORWAY - JUN 28, 2015
Golden color with an ok white head. Grainy and malty aroma. Medium (light) body with a soft to average carbonation. Tad sweet and a moderate bitterness. Grainy and malty flavor. Nothing to recommend.
[Can from an off license in Liverpool, England]

On tap pretty much anywhere in England -- This is British BMC basically. Nothing really special or to note about it.
