"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.

UPDATED: JUL 23, 2017 Bland, watery, fizzy gold pour, blink and it’s gone head. Faintest of malting and hopping in the aroma and taste. This is corn water if anything with the saving grace being that even the corn is ridiculously faint.

Not bad for a pound. Better than any Polish mainstream beer, that’s the best I can say about it.

Piss poor larger. Very little flavour. There is only one mainstream beer that is worse than this Carlsberg. Only drinking it because my mate left it hear last week.

MRMedellin (299) - Bogota, COLOMBIA - JUN 17, 2017
Clear golden beer, standar carbonation, white small head, mainly grain notes, not too much hops, slight bitterness at the end, metallic flavours and yeast ones, not the best lager.

Acaro (235) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 12, 2017
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2017 Aroma: Very subtle cereals and herbs. Appearance: Gold color with clear sparkling liquid and white frothy head. Taste: Light sourness. Palate: Light body with thin texture and average carbonation. Very short and subtle astringent finish. Overall: Not bad flavours but it is too weak. Drink cold as a refreshment.

The thing is with Carling, it’s a true session lager. The only lager the English have made that is mass produced. I used to hate Carling but now I don’t mind the odd one as it can be quite cheap. Carling serves a purpose, if you fancy pacing yourself then no reason why not to have a carling. For a 4 percent lager it’s probably the best. Usually with Carling if it’s not flat then it is quite drinkable. Don’t drink it from the can though.

From can at home. Aroma: Virtually non-existent. Maybe some corn? Appearance: Off white head that fades into obscurity pretty quickly. Body is beautifully clear, if a strange urine-yellow. Taste: I’d love to say this was better, after all, it’s British! However it’s rather disappointing. Very little of anything aside from an uncomfortable sweetness. Palate: Fizzy and cold like a macro lager should be. Overall: Carling will do the job if ice cold, but just don’t go near it when it warms. Expectantly disappointing.

Karstenborg (1076) - Hasselager, DENMARK - APR 27, 2017
Clear yellow with a smal white head. Aroma is metalic, grass and grain. Taste is grain, lime and water

Stuu666 (13399) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 8, 2017
Keg at Hollywood bowl. Pours golden, nose is grass, floral, taste is sweet, harsh toffee.
