"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

I think it may have once been easily available in bottles but Ive had a hard time fining one until I found a plastic one at a club. After all this time I found one. Medium clear gold with a thick creamy fizzy deminishing white head. Smells of grain and cereal. Lots off additives here. Some like stape hops. Chewey thin ligt body. Tastes sweet at first and then becomes cardboard which turns to pladtic when its warm. Rather harsh. Truly industrial swill. Glad I waited this long.

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 (730) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 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 (5761) - 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.
