I've seen these once or twice as promotional items. I don't think they sell them on a regular basis in Canada. I can't see there being a big difference between those and regular cans though.

If beer is fresh and poured into a glass, it doesn't matter if it comes from a can or bottle, it will have the same taste. Drinking directly from a can will give you a different taste though, as the top is not coated, that's where the "aluminum" taste comes from. On aluminum bottles, the coating is rolled to the outside and there is minimal, if any, aluminum contact. A slow steady pour from a can will produce the best results. As for beer in a fridge, I assume your fridge has shelves like mine does. I position my shelves so that I can stack 2 high. Even with a half empty fridge, at the back of a 42' 5er, I have never lost a bottle. My door is strapped shut, and I'm always slow to open it, so that nothing comes rolling out, would hate to lose one that way.

I use these with perfect success.

I think the 6pack carriers is a good idea though. Thanks.

I'm not a fan of the taste of cans either......but they are convenient and a lot lighter. Camping is the only time I buy cans.

What I did was to pack them in tight and use a hook and eyelet on the door and side of the fridge to keep them in place during transit. Also, my fridge would have the beer icing up, so I must have had a good one!

For the cans, I have been told that guiness did something to make their canned beer taste like bottled. This comes from my dad who is a beer snob.

Guinness from a can is good if it is poured into a cold pint glass. I prefer beer straight from the cooler. Even at home.

Guinness should never be in a cold glass

Didn't or doesn't Keystone Beer advertise that they have a special lining in their beer cans to help do away with the aluminum taste?

Are those bottlecans 12 or 16 oz? I've seen them,but never looked closely.

I'm in the Give Me Glass corner when it comes to beer containers as well as preferring food in glass containers over plastic or aluminum.

Glass is what I grew up with and I ain't changing if I got a choice.
