Used to be 355ml now only 330ml per bottle
I hate companies like Carlton misleading buyers they don't increase the price but the volume per bottle have decreased the volume per bottle and it's good as increasing the price without telling the consumers, I called this really a misleading customers, buy Corona still 355ml per bottle, quite annoying I used to consume 355ml.
Purchased in October 2021 for $45.00.
One of the best beers on the market - with one big flaw
Carlton have a beer on the market that in my opinion, is one of the easiest drinking, cleanest tasting and finely flavoured beers that I have tasted.
They have infused their Carlton Dry with natural lime, which gives the beer a delicious flavour and a definite 'more-ish' character. I would drink it exclusively except for one problem. Carlton, presumably to boost their profits, have reduced the size of their stubbies to 330ml, down from the original 355ml and a lot less that the normal 375ml Carlton Dry. They still however, charge full price for the smaller stubbies. A shame really, as it could be one of their big sellers if there was value for money.
I don’t like their ring pull and that they are less volume.
I don’t like the ring pull and that they are less volume. I feel ripped off. I have a sore finger from ring pull and I’ve spilt beer dealing with this substandard ring pull. Stupid stupid idea the ring pull.

Carlton Dry Re-Released
I was a regular consumer of Carlton Dry until CUB's misguided decision to change to ring pull tops and reduce the size of the bottles from 355ml to 330ml late last year. In January, CUB admitted they had made a mistake and would re-release Carlton Dry in twist tops, however no commitment was made to return to 355ml bottles, despite the major protests being based on capacity and price. The twist tops have now reappeared, however the 330ml bottles have remained. Needless to say, I won't be purchasing any - CUB, you just don't get it!
Purchased in April 2019 at BWS Physical store for $22.00.
I have enjoyed drinking Carlton stubbies for many years.But the changes in volume from 355ml to 330ml with the price remaining the same has sent me packing !!
Very sly Carlton you can shove it.
Purchased in January 2004.
Size and lid not happy
Changed lid is not good for those with large fingers, just can’t use them. Bottle size has gone from 355ml to 330ml for the same price.
How to damage a brand
Ring pulls that cut your fingers, frustrating plastic packaging and reduction in volume....good beer but I have voted with my feet
Rip off volume with a crappy rip off lid!
We lose 2 stubbies out of every carton in volume and cut ourselves trying to open the bloody things. I'm finding another beer to drink! P s. The plastic packaging is a bad idea too.
Change back to twist top and make the bottle bigger again you greedy
Very ordinary and bad decisions made by the marketing department to hide the fact they dropped the mls in the bottle, bring back the twist too.
Been drinking Carlton dry for a long time. Very disappointed with the ring top as it now has a flat taste and I'm changing my beer. The old saying goes “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”
I love the beer, but the new bottle scars me
I love carlton dry, it's my beer of choice.
The new bottles are crap. Smaller in volume and the ring pull cuts my finger resulting in unnecessary loss of blood. The blood flow increases as I drink more beer due to the blood thinning characteristics of carlton dry.
Get it sorted Carlton United brewery asap b4 I die.
Ring top boycott
Not buying anymore until twist top is returned and size back to what it was. Has someone been replaced for such terrible decision.
Was a great beer until you mucked up and stuck a pull cap on it
The beer is good.
I am now exploring alternatives because of the ring pull top.
As you pull the cap off it cuts your finger is this intentional?
Who is the moron executive that thought (hey lets put a ring pull top on the bottle and reduce the bottle size and the amount of beer charge more and people will not notice) fire him and go back to what people like. Fair dinkum we're not idiots...
Great way to lose customers
The old simple twist action now has become a three part activity to open the bottle, which includes having to locate the ring pull in the first place, holding the bottle straight, as the pulling motion tips it to the side, and then trying not to cut your finger. My wife cant open them ! Then reducing the volume, what can I say, we are not stupid, we can see its smaller and want the regular size back. Dont fix what is not broke !
Questions & Answers
Who wants to see 355ml or even 375ml bottles make a come back?
The carlton dry, Peels is 330mls. Calorie count is for a 355ml bottle. So how many calories are in a 330ml bottle please
Have they increased the sugar in the new Carlton dry real peels. Taking the information off the boxes smells fishy to me
