Disadvantages: You can savour a drink of premium beer but Carling is best drank quickly.
Arguably one of the pioneering drinks in Great Britain. It was originally brewed in Canada but made the transition to Britain in 1952. Traditionally a nation of ale drinker Britain took time to adjust to this new drink but a massive advertising campaign in the 1970's and the production of carling in Cans increased its brand awareness and allowed people to drink it at home.
To this day it is still one of the nation's favourites. At just 4% it is not as strong as its continental competitors but its light flavour and cheap price keep it ahead in terms of consumption. 1 in 4 pints sold in the UK is a pint of Carling.
Best served cold this iconic lager is great on a hot summers day and is a welcome refreshment after a long day of work or play.
I can quite honestly say that this is my favourite standard lager. If it ceased to exist then I would shed a tear and switch to fosters, almost as satisfying but just not quite the same.
Summary: Carling or Fosters - you are either one or the other. For me its Carling all the way
