I think the metallic taste many people pick up is all in their heads. I remember hearing someone from 21st amendment commenting on how the new cans have a water based liner inside the can that negates all of the metallic taste issues.

I'm sure not ALL the breweries use the same cans but still, the pepsi challenge with the same beer from bottles and cans should be done. I bet most don't notice a thing. Surly, Caldera, 21st A..... all of it tastes great to me.

I agree, I think the bias against them are so strong that people are going to think they're picking up on stuff like that. When in reality cans are not the same cans from 20 years ago. I mean we open soup and other products in cans all the time and don't detect anything. It's funny to watch folks respond that way, it's really just an anti bmc elitist beersnob bias and nothing more. BMC comes in cans, therefore cans are bad.

Did you pour them into the glass yourself, or did you have someone else pour them and serve them to you blind?

This quote is awesome with no context...

I just hope they don't just sell 6-packs. It is way too expensive....30-pack of SNPA for me!!!!
