I am not much of a beer drinker but recently I had drink this beer with my friends.What looks like an amazing lager (from the glass) but it's taste is awkward. unfortunately, their iconic, flagship beer is one of their least impressive. … Read Full Review

A friend who adores this stuff insisted on buying me a pint of it to convince me of its brilliance. It was served very cold which at least dulled its taste a bit. The aggressive metallic attack and thin texture was extremely unpleasant and the vile aftertaste with barely a hint of hops left me completely unable and unwilling to finish it. The overcarbonation and acidic fizziness made it simply one of the worst beers I have ever drunk. Anyone who thinks that this is a quality product clearly… Read Full Review

The secret of understanding Carling lager is putting it in the right perspective. Let's not compare it with belgian masterpieces, or chech pilsners, this beer has only one purpose - to refresh. And it does it with style. It's simple, light, easygoing, perfect for summer heat or football game on TV. Nice design of the bottle and the glass. Shouldn't matter, but it always does. Mass produced, mass adored? Think so! Not so much taste, but the freshness hits the right spot. You'll never think of… Read Full Review

This is average refreshing lager, best from the tap during afternoon pub football game. Best served very cold as with most lagers, it has a bit less character than other lagers so I would recommend it for young football fans. Packaging seems bit cheap and does not have that heritage reference which other beers do but perhaps this is not the point of modern lager… Read Full Review

Good refreshing lager, best from the tap as I found the cans give it a bit of a metallic after taste, although I notice they brought out a new type of "taste lock" can which may improve their taste. Best served very cold as with most lagers, although it has a bit more character than most mass produced lagers so I would reccomend it… Read Full Review

England should just stick to making Ales.
This lager has no redeeming features. It's too frothy which seems to cling to your mouth and the aftertaste is metallic.
In my opinion probably one of the worst lagers out there for the price you have to pay.
If however you don't mind / enjoy it, you'd be better off buying supermarkets own lager.
It'll be miles cheaper and taste just as "good"… Read Full Review

I like it, but do not love it. I can drink loads and not get tipsy (on a good day), which is not all bad, but it can be if you have not got anything else to drink! Carling, like the adverts, do have it Spot On with their lager. However, Carling has that kind of lingering taste to it that you can't get rid of, and it also makes you hungry very quickly which can lead to being fat very quickly! Never mind the beer belly that you thought you got rid of a month ago!
Carling should be enjoyed as a… Read Full Review

I am a keen follower of Carling lager, and I tend to enjoy this most evenings over dinner, or just for a couple of sociable beverages. The flavour is slightly fruity, although not overpowering, and it can be a perfect accompaniment to most meals, especially chicken and vegetable pies and chicken Kiev's. It's got a very smooth taste, and it is very easy to drink. I would say it is a far superior beer to it's competitors at this level, such as Carlsberg, and even it's more stronger counterparts… Read Full Review

Carling Beer a bit mass-produced, but it's rare to get a truly bad pint of this. It's generally good without being outstanding, and usually fairly good value… Read Full Review
