Bottles every time.....I hate the taste of 'can'. Sure cans go cold quicker in the fridge, but they warm up faster than a bottle. Personally I like beer served in a nice glass with ice.

can: wrong, Heinekin: wrong   Decent beer needs a glass:      

Maybe my imagination but I always thought the taste of beer from a glass bottle was better than a can. 

My father had a neurological disease that affected his legs.  Made it impossible for him to walk past pubs.

So, aside from beer snobs (you know who you are) I suppose most like bottles, some because of taste. Years back the can gave off a taste but I haven't got that metal taste from Heinekin cans which is all I drink unless it's free.

 

I'm still of the opinion that you can draw a longer, more satisfying first couple of pulls off a can. Aaahhhh. Walking in the surf, drinking an ice cold beer, man it's heaven.

If your beer was 'ice cold' would it not be solid in the can?

Bottles.

 

With modern cans the tab goes INTO the drink, so whatever was on it from fingers, insects, rats, etc. goes into the drink and into you.  Yes, you can clean it first, but that takes time and destroys the spontaneity.  

With bottles the outside bit is removed, giving clean beer.

 

I prefer a glass if indoors with aircon, but outside here it gets hot way too fast - and no "beer condoms" for glasses.

As an aside if you drink Heineken you would not notice any difference, it is flowery enough now.

When available glass/bottle for me

I agree and have always found bottled beer tastes better - but in the interest of the environment, why oh why isn't there a deposit on beer bottles?

No.  Water freezes at a higher temperature than Alcohol.

Assuming both are at the same pressure........ of course.

I tend to buy bottles simply because they are better value. For example, in my local shop a large can of Chang (490ml) is 50 baht where as a large bottle of Chang (620ml) is 55 baht.

It's a bit of a no brainer really.

 

 

And canned Chang doesn't taste the same as the bottled to me.

Yes, some of them are also pretty good.

Several years ago I conducted a blind taste test of Singha beer from bottle and from can with 2 beer drinking friends.  We all chose the canned beer as tasting better—big surprise to us.

You can buy a 'can crusher' on Lazada which makes them down to almost nothing.

Easy enough to do without the gadget: squeeze in the sides a bit and then crush them vertically underfoot

Always drink from a glass, straight from the freezer.

 

Where possible, we use cans - they get sold to the recycling people.

We save the tabs and donate them to the local hospital. There is a higher aluminium content (?) and they are recycled to make artificial limbs. Many of the 7/11's and Familymarts have collection points for the tabs.

It might just be in my mind but beer in a can has a slight metallic taste. Mind you, if canned is all that's available I won't turn my nose up, but given a choice, it's always bottled beer.
