Connor’s Stout Porter, produced by Carlsberg Malaysia, has launched its iconic draught stout experience in cans.

This brand-new innovation retains the creamy head and gentle roasty undertones that Connor’s Stout Porter fans have enjoyed in bars, now they have the chance to enjoy it at home or on-the-go.

To achieve this, the British-inspired brew has been double-dosed with nitrogen before canning to maintain its iconic smooth head and fine cascading effect when freshly poured.

Caroline Moreau, Marketing Director of Carlsberg Malaysia, commented, “We’re very proud to introduce another innovation with Connor’s Draught in a can, giving stout lovers the opportunity to ‘Taste the Good Times’ anywhere, anytime! With our first-ever use of nitrogen double-dosing in a can – which is also a first among all Carlsberg markets globally.”

Inspired by the original British Stout Porter recipe from the 1700s, Connor’s Stout Porter is currently available in Malaysia and Singapore and is fully brewed using a unique blend of four premium malts including lager malt, caramel malt, brown malt and roasted barley for a unique balance of bitterness and robustness with gentle roasted caramel and coffee undertones.

Connor’s cans come in 320ml and 500ml sizes in a stylish design inspired by British pubs and will be available at supermarkets, hypermarkets, convenience stores, e-retailers and selected bars, bistros and restaurants from April 2021.

To introduce the new canned stout Connor’s will be running nationwide promotions at 7-Eleven and MyNews outlets as well as in selected supermarkets nationwide and online retailers Shopee, Lazada, Potboy and Pandamart.
