Connor’s Continues to Deliver Promise of a Taste “Just Made Right”

October 12, 2018

Connor’s Stout Porter’s ‘Stout Challenge’ received an impressive 96% satisfaction rating from Malaysian drinkers who took part in the blind-taste ‘Stout Challenge’ validating the brand promise of delivering a taste “Just Made Right”.  

Held nationwide in September for the second time this year, the ‘Stout Challenge’ successfully recruited 12,000 Brand Ambassadors nationwide where live on-ground engagements took place at 80 hot spots in KL, Selangor, Ipoh, Penang, Malacca and Johor.

Curious consumers and passers-by were introduced to the natural quality ingredients used to brew Connor’s, learned the right way to pour a perfect pint and rated the unbranded brew. Further elevating the experience, stout lovers who took up the challenge were rewarded with a voucher for a FREE pint of Connor’s redeemable at participating outlets.  

The ratings from the challenge is an affirmation that consumers love Connor’s Stout Porter’s carefully concocted brew, infused with a blend of unique flavours, roasty undertones with a gentle caramel note that delivers a crisp texture that balances the bitterness and robustness.

“We strongly believe in our premium draught stout hence the promise of a taste “Just Made Right”. Proven by the success of Connor’s blind-taste ‘Stout Challenge’ having received a 93% satisfaction rate, followed by recruiting an additional 12,000 Brand Ambassadors with an engaging marketing experience, we are glad to see that the unbranded challenge made a positive impact to discerning draught stout drinkers,” said Charles Wong, Marketing Director of Carlsberg Malaysia. 

As a testament to the success of the Stout Challenge, the unbranded activation by Connor’s clinched itself a GOLD award for Best Engagement Strategy for a Male Audience, SILVER award for Best Customer Experience and a SILVER award for Best Use of Experiential/Live Marketing at the Loyalty & Engagement Awards 2018 by Marketing magazine in Singapore.
