Molson Coors has followed yesterday's pre-release announcement with the official launch of Carling Zest in the UK. The citrus-flavoured beer is being positioned as a Summer alternative to the likes of rose wine and cider for both male and female drinkers.

A GBP1.9m advertising campaign will back the launch, starting on 1 May. It will include TV, press, outdoor and digital presence.

Carling Zest joins Carling C2 in Molson Coors' lower-alcohol beer portfolio in the UK.

The variant is now available in four packs in the off-trade, with 12 packs and single bottles rolling out to the off-and on-trade, respectively, from 18 March. From May, Carling Zest will be available on draught across the on-trade.
