I've been waiting for awhile now for Sierra Nevada's Pale Ale cans and finally found them at my local package store, so I picked up a case for a party this weekend. A few buddies and I, who are all VERY familiar with SNPA (to say the least! Lol) thought the cans seemed to be a smoother, cleaner version of the beer than bottles.
Now, being the cans were just released and the brew date was early February this was definitely fresh beer. Either way, I'm hooked as cans are just all around easier to deal with in my opinion. I'm all for the canning movement!
