167/1752) Home: Carling Black Label by Molson Coors of Ontario: *1/2; 4.7%; "since 1927"; pale straw colour; grainy nose with mildly sweet maltiness;
I may have given this an extra half point for sentiment. Black Label used to be very fashionable on Queen Street West, maybe since everyone was wearing black at the time, but maybe not since time seems to have stopped for a brief stretch on that street. The ads were great, too, but the trendies gave way to hipsters. At least this is still available and as a result I don't panic when I see low information young people wearing toques (indoors), skinny, tighty neon pastel slacks, plaid shirts and blanket scarves drinking Molson Stock Ale.
