Episode 12- CAN You Taste the Difference?
Does a beer that was canned taste different than the same beer from a bottle? This week, we put ourselves through a blind tasting to see if there we could detect a difference. Check out our results below.

Results:
After being poured in another room, samples were presented in glasses labeled A and B. We were aware of the beer brand/type being served, but not which of our glasses contained the can sample or bottle sample. Our job was to try to determine which samples were poured from a bottle, and which were poured from a can.

In conclusion, we were all able to reliably guess correctly more than 50% of the time. We also thought that the samples that came from cans most often displayed the more favorable characteristics. Additionally, the canned samples displayed fewer flaws or off-flavors in our opinions.
