  1. You can’t taste what you can’t smell. Try it. Pick something flavorful and hold your nose. Can you taste it?
  1. Objects closer to your nose tend to take priority with your sense of smell. So, when drinking from a can, the aluminum top is going to influence what you smell first. The aluminum top also blocks the aroma of the beverage inside.
  1. The smooth pour of an aromatic beverage, in this case beer or wine, fills your mouth evenly to cover all the taste buds. The old-fashioned tab opening sends the fluid directly past your tastebuds to the back of your mouth.
