Carling Black Label developed as a brand in 1927 from the Canadian brewery Carling O’Keefe's existing Black & White Lager. It was introduced into the UK in 1952 in bottles, the first UK keg was launched in 1965. The brand became hugely successful in the UK via a very popular ad campaign - "I bet he drinks Carling Black Label", and has been Britain's best selling beer brand since then. The original Carling O’Keefe brewery was purchased by Molson in the 1980s. Coors later purchased both Molson and the UK license holders Bass. The name changed from Carling Black Label to Carling, with the subtitle Original Lager, in 1997.

UPDATED: AUG 1, 2016 No aroma except for faint dishwasher detergent and grass. Weak head that dissipates within seconds. Pours watery yellow. Overly carbonated. Hay, grass and some faint malt constitutes the otherwise metallic taste. Dry cardboardy finish. One of the worst beers I?ve had. There are much better cheap macro beers out there.

alexmate (307) - South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2016
A very bland watery lager. Pours golden, with a slight head, very fizzy due to high carbonation. The flavours are bland, some citrus, some slight floral notes and a slightly sharp finish. This lager sells millions each year, but it was surpassed years ago.

pkbites (1006) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 7, 2016
Slightly darker yellow pour. Very grainy with scant hops. It’s a macro and tastes like a macro. On tap @ The Grafton, Cork, Ireland.

jjsint (3609) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2016
Pint at the Rock, Cambridge. well I’ve drunk almost everything in here, so desperate ticks call for desperate measures. Darkish gold with a big white head. The head settles quickly and leaves some sort of odd film. Smells of naked malt and salty sweaty lemon. Doesn’t taste of much, like alcoholic barley water, but the aftertaste has some odd plastic citrus note. Its actually not actively bad, but certainly disappointing, although I have no idea why I may have expected better...

marcnow (105) - Pszczyna, POLAND - APR 29, 2016
Jasny i przezroczysty lager. calkiem niezla pianka zostaje na kuflu i ma mala fakture. Zapach sie nie wyroznia ale jak na lager to jest spoko. Niewymagajace, jak na lagera cialo ok ale no coz - szalu jakos nie ma. gazowane srednio

Ysok02 (1920) - Mons, BELGIUM - APR 21, 2016
Une lager de base sans grand intérêt autre que désaltérer, basique de chez basique.

Drinkamon (5) - - APR 21, 2016 does not count
Bland like spit with a hint of lemon urinal cake. This is the UKs most popular beer, probably because the price is so cheap, and it sounds local. Aside from that it’s an ok beer to drink as it’s blandness makes it refreshing and you can almost finish a pint or can without realizing you have drunk anything at all. Not as bad as drinking stomach acid or Horlicks.
