"The great balance of taste and refreshment". Britains 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 OKeefe 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.

From Hipecor. 50cl can. In Ikeas pint glass. Reading CSHTP6 Ch7. Much more balanced than other adjunt lagers, with the corn little noticeable. Very drinkable and smooth. Good body for its low ABV.

Leighton (20591) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2010
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.

MustangMarkF (247) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2012
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

whoopassmachine (15) - mancland, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2003
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.
