Calories in Beer: Carling versus Skinny Lager

With a history dating as far back as 1818, Carling is one of the most heavily consumed lagers in the world. In 2016, for example, a reported 7.9 billion pints were sold in the UK alone, with the total worldwide being 83.6 billion pints.

Calculating the total number of calories that comes to is completely mind-boggling, so let’s just start with the total number of calories and carbs in a single 330ml bottle of Carling.

To help towards this, Skinny Brands recently released statistics on the number of calories in popular brands of beer versus their flagship product, Skinny Lager – the aim being to raise awareness on the number of calories in beer. One of the bottles used for comparison was Carling.

Below we take a look at how the numbers compare between a bottle of Carling and a bottle of Skinny Lager.

The numbers don’t lie. With 89 calories per bottle, Skinny Lager has 16% fewer calories than Carling, which has 106 calories per bottle. Not only this, it also has 61% fewer carbs.

Therefore, if your go-to bottle of beer has typically been Carling, then you certainly need to sample the crisp, clean taste of the world’s first ‘skinny’ lager.

Brewed in the UK, Skinny Lager is also vegan-friendly and gluten-free.
