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

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.

Bottle 500 ml in Daba, Zagreb. Pours cleary xellow with small white head. Malty and grainy. Extremely watery.

christhoel (14) - chesterfield, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2014
golden, clear, frothy, light body, fizzy, thin feel, astringent, its alright for a stocking filler and cheap but not the best available by any means!

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.

nightswimming (12) - TURKEY - JUN 18, 2014
a very fresh beer to drink anywhere - anytime. for sure itís not a 3th class beer and its smell is very refreshing but!... finally itís like water! use it as a perfume :)

czar (4110) - 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 (105) - 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.

Tom303 (79) - Northumberland, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2014
Pours golden with a fairly compact head. Aroma of not loads but sweet malt, taste is light gentle malt and light bitter finish A bog standard easy drinking lager, quite refreshing served cold. Certainly there are so many tastier beers but I donít think Iíve ever had a íbadí beer. Itís ok just not the tastiest out there.
