Beer: Can, Bottle or Tap?
 
I was thinking there has to be a thread around here on this topic somewhere, so excuse me if it is. Well, not really.

I happen to think there's a big difference between canned beer, bottled and my preference, beer on tap. Yumm!

For instance, I'm a big Yuengling drinker but for the life of me I can't stand it in a bottle; it tastes totally different. Heineken on the other hand, I prefer in the bottle not tap. Oh, and at the ballpark the old platstic red cup is mandatory. I just loving spilling shit on folks and pretending I was too drunk to really notice.

I guess the real question is is this shit all in my head? Is a Heineken a Heineken and Bud a Bud? Does it all taste the same no matter what?

Will one of you ex-bartenders please weigh in on this matter.

Oh there's a huge difference.

First, there is virtually no circumstance in which beer tastes better out of a can. It just doesn't exist.

As for bottles vs tap, I prefer the bottle. I like how when you tip it up and get a glug glug, it releases the carbonation in your mouth, so the bubbles distribute the flavor all over your tongue. Enhances the beer experience.

But if I'm looking to get tanked, out of the tap is always much smoother going down!

Somewhat on topic, I was at Monk's Cafe in Philly on Saturday night. They got some [u]good[/u] beer there. Really good

I like to buy those Heineken mini kegs and I can tell you that draft is so much better. I love Heineken in a bottle, but the mini keg just blows it away.

I wish Guinness would make a mini keg.

Tap --> Bottle --> Can

The only time I drink out of a can is playing beer-pong. Tap just tastes great. Definitely distinct flavors between tap and bottle. Smithwicks out of the tap is amazing, out of the bottle it's solid.

However, nothing like a good ol' IC in an aluminum bottle!

I drink most of my beer out of bottles. The only thing I prefer out of a can is Guinness, and then its poured into a glass... but the widget in the can makes the beer creamier. I've been tearing up some guinness lately... topping off a Hoegaarden, or other wheat beer, or by itself. its an amazing beer.

As far as draft goes, Killians is also pretty good on tap, if you can find it... kinda like smithwicks... an irish red.

From a tap into a frosty mug or a bottle into a frosty mug.

Bear tastes mor elike its intended to out of a bottle, nice and cold :). Tap > Can but mm the flavor of a bottle is hard to beat.

See I've had the mini keg, I wasn't all that impressed. It wasn't horrible, but it wasn't like out of bottle either. Besides I think I screwed it up trying to put the tap thingy on the end.

It tastes best if you polish off the whole thing.

I prefer beer out of a bottle, then a can, then the tap. But when your drinking 12+ as long as the 1st 3 or 4 are out of a bottle it really doesnt matter how the rest are contained.
Meet up with me in Canton and lets have some together.

For some reason most keg beer gives me a raging headache...

I have a full kegger and love the tap beer out of there. Usually a little Dos Equis or some Miller Lite. If I can't have the tap, then its preferred choice #2 and the bottle.

Bottle is the best!

I can't say I've ever had beer out of a keg and I'm a college student. I like the bottle. Canned beer is okay with me too. I'm no beer expert... this coming from the chick that actually likes Milwaukee's Best (Apparently thats a shitty beer?)
