I hate cheap lager like stella out of a can... but when it's a full bodied flavour like specky , it still tastes great from the can IMO

They are doing a 3 for 2 deal on 4 packs of bottles, but it works out much more expensive.

12ltr (not 13.2) works out about £26

I bet you CANnot..I'd challenge any of you to do a blind tasting and tell the difference when poured into a glass. Not having a go at anyone on here but there are so many so called beer buffs who have a snobbery about cans v bottles yet most of them couldn't tell their **** from their elbow let alone about any half decent beer. Gives me a laugh though..

Why I did this tasting:
A Czech beer tasting at the GBBF Bieres sans Frontieres bar on Wednesday August 4th, 2004, included a canned beer, Gambrinus. This brought about resentment and ridicule of canned beers from some CAMRA members. Being a can collector and having sampled literally thousands of canned beers (both good and bad) over the years, I thought it might be interesting to do a blind tasting of several canned and bottled beers with a number of CAMRA members and beer experts.

How the tasting was done:
As this tasting was arranged at short notice I was unable to get the same beer in both cans and bottles, that tasting will have to wait until next year. Identical glasses were numbered 1 through 9 and the beers were randomly poured. Participants were asked to taste each beer in any order they wished and to record on a grid with a "C" or "B" what they thought was the original container for the beer.

The beers (percentage alcohol given by volume):
1) Harboe Paske Bryg (5.9%), Denmark - Can
2) Piast Beer (5.7%), Poland - Bottle
3) Land Brauerei Echigo-Brau Premium Beer (5.0%), Japan - Can
4) Kirin Ichiban Dark (5.5%), Japan - Can
5) Castle Lager (5.0%), South Africa - Bottle
6) Rodenbach Klassiek 5.0%), Belgium - Can
7) Gold Label Very Strong Special Beer (9.5%), UK - Can
8 ) Zywiec Beer (5.7%), Poland - Bottle
9) Ginga Kogen Galaxy Express (for JR West Railway Co)(5.0%), Japan - Can








Why these beers?
As far as the cans are concerned, they were some of the more interesting I still had full, the bottles were chosen from two local stores and I chose "mass produced" brands for a reason, more on that later.

The Participants:
Jasper and Tom from the Oxford Bottled Beer Database
Lorenzo Dabove, Italian Beer Expert
Ian Garrett - co-ordinator of Bieres Sans Frontieres at GBBF
Derek Moore, brewer - Kelburn Brewery
Tom Perera - Knickerbocker's Bier Tours
Dave Sanders, brewer - Elland Brewery
Hugh Shipman, Beer Distributor
Jos Brouwer - PINT Netherlands
Fred Waltman - FranconiaBeerGuide.com
Andy Benson, Peter Alexander, Richard and James - all manning the BSF bars.

The results:
I'm not going to embarrass any of the participants by giving individual scores, but the average failure rate was 62.4%.

1) Harboe Paske Bryg. 8 out of 14 participants (57%) wrongly identified that as a bottled beer.
2) Piast Beer. 9 out of 14 participants (64%) wrongly identified this as a canned beer.
3) Land Brauerei Echigo-Brau Premium Beer. 8 out of 14 participants (57%) wrongly identified this as a bottled beer.
4) Kirin Ichiban Dark. 5 out of 14 participants (36%) wrongly identified this as a bottled beer.
5) Castle Lager. 9 out of 14 participants (64%) wrongly identified this as a canned beer.
6) Rodenbach Klassiek. 11 out of 14 participants (78%) wrongly identified this as a bottled beer.
7) Gold Label Very Strong Special Beer. 10 out of 14 participants (71%) wrongly identified this as a bottled beer.
8 ) Zywiec Beer. 11 out of 14 participants (78%) wrongly identified this as a canned beer.
9) Ginga Kogen Galaxy Express. 7 out of 14 participants (50%) wrongly identified this as a bottled beer.

Conclusion:
It would seem from the results that mass produced beers (from taste alone, as the brands were not revealed to participants until after the tasting) were perceived to come from a can, even if they were actually from a bottle and that the better quality or more unusual canned beers were perceived as bottled beers, this can be clearly seen in the results for Zywiec and Rodenbach. A number of participants stated that they were just guessing and really could not tell if the beer came from a can or bottle on taste alone. It can be concluded that canned beer is not inferior to bottled beer and that people are prejudiced against canned beer because they perceive this form of packaging to be associated with mass produced beers.

Quality..thanks for that. I doth my cap to thee !! 8).....Although I'm sure someone will dig out some stats to try and show otherwise, and it is all about choice but it just winds the hell outta me when some so called conesieurs bleat on about canned beer being SO inferior when 99% don't have a clue.

Me....? Long as I like the taste I don't care what it comes out of !!

There’s nothing better than a thirst-quenching swig of cold beer on a hot summer day after an exhausting hike or an afternoon spent in the sun. Wait a minute -- that cold beer is in a can, and through years of exposure to social prejudice you believe it’s of a lesser quality than its bottled counterpart. Pondering the argument for canned beers, you come to realise that numerous craft micro brewers are now offering delicious, complex and interesting beers in cans. Your internal debate has also left you with numerous questions about canned beer: Does the aluminum can affect the taste? Does good-tasting beer store well in cans? Are there benefits to drinking a good beer from a can?

Sit back and finish your suds; we’re about to make that canned-beer experience taste just a bit better with our argument for canned beer.

the argument for canned beer
The biggest misconception about canned beer is that the aluminum can imparts a metallic taste. The insides of most cans and lids used for high-end craft beers have a sprayed coating, ensuring that there is absolutely no contact between the beer and the aluminum. Test the metal-taste theory: Pour a beer in a pint glass for a pal and have them taste it for any metal taste. Also consider that most people enjoy draft beer, which is housed in a metal keg. All you have to do is think of your canned beer as a mini keg.

As far as storage goes, canned beer might have a slight advantage over bottles in that cans actually protect beer from light and oxygen. Cans are airtight and oxygen-free. When light consistently hits a bottle of beer, it can turn skunky and ultimately undrinkable. Oxygen can also leach into a bottled beer under the bottle cap and affect the taste, which could potentially destroy the beer

High horses or what. Nobody said they could tell the difference. I can was a pun . I can can was a reference to a drunken can can dance. I just prefer bottles if thats ok?

Burty....you seam a little self obsessed....I posted info/opinions from others to inform others (not just you)

By the way beer is best served slightly above room temp as it helps the flavours to develop

Hope this helps.

I agree and it wasn't aimed at anyone on here particularly. BUT people have said they CAN tell the difference...and I'm sorry that's rubbish. And I stick by that.

I would you suggest you read what has been written and get down off your high horse fella. No offence. :)

and BTW I'm a bundle of laughs me ..!! ;)

Sorry, tried again. Even with the use of matchsticks it's not happening. My mind wonders and before I know it the corner of the room where it meets the ceiling suddenly becomes very interesting. I think I'll just stick to paying for overpriced bottles. It's like chips from the chippy, they taste the same on a plate buts there's something nice about eating them from a bag.

Normally, I would agree with this comment, but having bought some of these before, I think that they are just as good as the bottled version. Topped up stock this morning, but had to ask for some from the stockroom.
