I love the beer can chicken, but it seems like if you actually use the cans it tastes aluminumy (yeah, I made up a word, what of it?). I found a ceramic thing at Bass Pro with a wide base that I make mine in now and it turns out great! I've never heard anyone else have this problem, but I'm glad the product is out there.

Default 11 year old beer

My aunt gave me a couple of cans of beer that are 11 years old. It's not homebrew just commercial beer. Do you think after 11 years in a sealed can they would still be drinkable?

I'm guessing that even in a can after 11 years they'll be oxidized and stale tasting.

If the beer is indeed stale, and oxidized, which is likely, why not cook up a few beer can chickens?
