Beer on tap v can/bottle

Postby Delicate Snowflake » Mon Jan 09, 2017 5:58 am

Why do some beers taste so different if on tap or from the can/bottle?

I don't mean the special things like Guinness, I mean just normal beers.

I can think of several here that are amazing on tap but horrible from any bottle/can, and vice-versa.

Probably has to do with how the container is stored. Most kegs are "probably" kept cool/cold. Most cans and bottles are not cared for so well. If you go to a shop to buy beer, the kegs are kept in a cooler, bottles/cans usually on the shelf not refrigerated


Now, the people who say bottled beer is superior to can beer are, in my opinion, wrong. Cans protect beer better than any bottle. Light is the enemy of beer. No light can get through a can. It can still get through even a brown bottle.

However, I have never heard of a can conditioned beer. I guess that still is the realm of bottles

The bottled ones where fermentation continues after bottling are another creature (and some are very very tasty).

As to the normal beers - your storage idea is interesting. Another person suggest offline it's freshness (i.e. kegs go quickly to pubs and are emptied, cans/bottles may be stored at many points along the supply chain).

Since I posted that last response, someone in the US came out with a can conditioned stout I believe.

Anyway, here is a Canadian can conditioned beer:
