I didn't just buy a keg can. I bought a Keg Can, the big ol' 1 pint, 8 oz can, that is the keg can version of a Silo. Roughly about half a liter. A lot o' Heineken, in other words. Honestly, I'm not sure if this is just Heineken's version of a canned beer, to make it more of a novelty, or if this is processed in such a way so that it tastes like it's coming from a keg. When I drank it from the can, it had that basic canned taste, nothing special. I kind of felt like a college student, or perhaps a drunk on the street, drinking from such a big can. I then poured it into one of my Weizen glasses (it filled the damn thing up) and drank it that way. Nice, actually. Good, clean lager, refreshing, the kind of beer I could drink all day if at a picnic. Better than regular bottled Heiny, I think. If you can buy the six pack and pour into a glass, I would recommend this.
