Oh the beer store. What a wonderful place! This was a must have for me as a soccer fan. It has a very fruity yet pleasing taste that make it good on a hot summer day. It looks darker than the American pale lagers and fel more full bodied. I wouldn't want to have to much of this at one time as I think it would be very overwhelming.

Cheers!

It pours a yellow-gold with a substantial white head. The smell is pretty good considering that it's significantly cheaper than a Dr. Pepper. It smells sort of like a better American adjunct, so nothing respectable or noteworthy, but definitely not bad.
The taste is very unremarkable. But also very inoffensive (as I find some euro pales to be. Read Heineken). It just tastes like wet grain with very little flavour, enough hops to balance (which luckily doesn't take much) and a little bit metallic, but it's not bothering me. It'd say this is pretty average.

This beer was deep golden with fine white bubbles for a head. There was plenty of carbonation with good lace.

The aroma was super subtle with no malt and a very mild earthiness.

The flavor was so balanced I could not detect much of anything. But there was no off flavors or aromas.

The mouthfeel was great with the carbonation playing with your tongue.

This beer is all looks and mouthfeel with no aroma or taste.

I'm stunned at the poor reviews of this beer. I am not a huge fan of Euro lagers but really this one is not as bad as many out there. Compare with the dreadful Ozlagers and this one really shines.
First, it poured a light amber colour with a thick fluffy head. Little in the way of smell but some breadiness which is evident on the flavour. Mouthfeel is pretty typical and drinkability is good. If you served this at an Australian BBQ they'd think it was top shelf. There's nothing offensive in this beer and it is tidy but bland quaffer. I rather enjoyed its bready character. It is cheap and clean and doesn't deserve the terrible rating it has now. By all means give it a go but don't expect it to win any awards.

Carling Black Label

Cool, Crisp and Superbly Refreshing

Carling's cool clean palate and distinctive bite are skillfully brewed using lightly kilned British malts, aromatic hops and Carling's unique yeast for a perfectly balanced and superbly refreshing flavors.


Carling should always be served refreshingly cold. Grab a chilled can or bottle from the fridge, hold a clean, dry glass at a 45 degree angle, pour in your Carling. Straighten the glass when it is nearly full and finish off the pour leaving a creamy head.

Was drawn to the beer as soon as i spotted it on the shirts of scotland's biggest team, celtic. But the beer, unlike the team, was borderline mediocre, sporting an extra-cold-is-better air all over it. In fact, the serve so cold on this pilsener rendered it rather tasteless to the most part, making only some notes of wheat and hops as well as a metallic feel to be perceivable, both to nose as to taste. Nothing above the ordinary.

2.8/5  rDev +21.7%

The colour is yellow (5 EBC), the three finger head is white and compact. It sinks slowly leaving some lacing.

The smell is sweet with quite a lot of cereals. Some sharp alcohol, hints of honey, paper and anonymous bitterness.

The taste got unexpected notes of paper, chalk and dust. Otherwise, there are semi-sweet malts, and very mild clean bitter flavours. Medium body. The aftertaste is dusty with some frowsy notes in the background and a bit more bitterness.

The carbonation is medium strong, the small bubbles fresh. The liquid is semi-smooth.

An OK Euro-lager with some disturbing off-flavours.
