Aluminum Bottles

Here in the twins, we can get Stite beer in those new aluminum bottles. Stite is made by Gluek's, a local Minnesota brewery.

When I was young, in the boy scouts, we'd go hiking on hot Texas summer day. After a couple of hours, I would be desparately thirsty, and I'd pull out my old Army surplus metal canteen, and take a long swig. The water invariably tasted powdery and metallic. On that long hike on that hot Texas summer day, that was fine.

This beer tastes the same way. Metallic and powdery. And I want to know if it's the beer, because Gluek's also makes other beers on tap and in cans, and it's always good. And you can tell this beer (Stite) should a nice creamy taste and finish. That is, it would if it were packaged in something other than an aluminum bottle.

So is it me? Or is it this beer? Or do aluminum bottles suck?
