At $5.99 per can, I think the canned Tremmons is a great deal, and I have been enjoying them lately.

I'd like to raise another round

Help yourself to mine
Thank you for your time

I donít buy cans. They donít pour right. They make the beer flat. Also, the beer seems to be missing something.

Cans are lined with plastic epoxy. I donít know of any plastic beer glasses.

Iíd like to see a blind test of the same beer at the same temperature in cans and bottles. Kyle?

If you want to avoid it, you have to open the twelve pack so you know which way the cans are oriented, and the let them sit in a fridge for a long time to get the yeast to settle to the bottom. Even then, it still has not had enough time to form a comact yeast cake, and you get yeast in your beer.
Pale ales are probably not the best beers for "can conditioning" as per your reasons above, but Belgian, Wheat and NEIPA would be just fine. And other beers would probably do just fine as long as the cans are stored upright and not on their sides. It would also work better for larger volume cans. Honestly, as long as the "can conditioned" beers are cared for the same way bottle conditioned beers are, they should be fine.
