"The great balance of taste and refreshment". Britain’s best selling beer since 1971.
<a href=http://www.carling.com>Website

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

The aroma of the beer is not up to scratch with the other aspects. Carling have done a good job making a good looking beer. The flavour is quite mild but also refreshing and perfect for summer. My overall impression is that this is a good lager which i would easily devour 8 cans.

Bottle. Pours a light, clear yellow with a medium, fizzy white head. Light grain malts in the nose with some dank hops. Lightly sweet with some faint, crisp and earthy hops. Light bodied with fine, fizzy carbonation. Finishes crisp and clean with moderate sweetness and some more of that dank hoppiness. Not overly sweet, which is nice, though the general flavor is lighter than other pale lagers. Not bad.

Very widely available in the Uk and can probably be regarded as the standard UK lager. The aroma is typical of a lager, barley notes and gentle hoppiness. Taste can vasry a lot between serving establishments - find a good one (rare in the make a quick buck times we now live in) and it will be full of creamy barley goodness - have a poor one and its metallic pea water. Appearance wise its slightly darker than its north american cousins. A good pint can be refreshing - a bad one is nasty

This is a good yardstick. Doesn't tend to fluctuate in quality much, a bad pint is drinkable unlike other lagers (Eg. Fosters). One to look for first when approaching the bar - if they don't have anything better (Eg. Carlsberg Export, Bud, Harp), always a good choice. Reasonable out of cans, but unlikely to get you rinsed as a bollock as is not the strongest of contenders for the beer crown.

This beer has a yellow body - hue with a no initial flavor and a light body.

MichaelAwesome (2956) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - SEP 17, 2012
Bottle shared with McTapps. Pours in golden with simple stable head. Aroma is malty with a but sugar. Tastes very easy but also refreshing. One of the best lager I had in the last 10 days.

Aroma relativamente bom. Aparencia boa. Muito amarga. No geral ela é melhor que muitas cervejas por ai, por isso tomarei de novo. Mas não considero entre as melhores cervejas que ja provei.

Very easy to drink, not to much action on the palate. A bad pint is terrible, a good pint is average, must be serve well chilled

This beer has little difference to others. Quite good for a lager. Nothing special.
