Stubby ring pulls pulled
CARLTON Dry will bring back stubby twist tops after its new ring-pull cap caused customer fury.
Frothing mad beer drinkers have complained about the redesign, with some reporting suffering finger cuts.
Carlton Dry has now apologised, saying the twist tops will return to the market in March.
“We’ve listened to our consumers and it’s clear they prefer opening their beer the more traditional way,” Carlton Dry brand director Brian Phan said. “So we’re going back to twist tops. It wasn’t broken and we shouldn’t have tried to fix it.”
The about-face comes less than three months after the ring pulls were launched in October.
