Why does draft beer taste so much better?

Why does draft beer taste so much better?

Freshness is the biggest reason why one would prefer draft beer over bottled or canned. Freshness has a significant effect on the flavor, which is why beer poured from a keg is expected to be fresher (and tastier) compared to a bottled beer. Pressure is what keeps the beer carbonated and fresh from the keg to glass.

Why does draft beer taste better than canned beer?

Beer from the tap is usually fresher than the bottled or canned product, and freshness impacts flavor. When beer is bottled, it undergoes pasteurization, which means it is heated to kill off any bacteria; this can also impact your beer's flavor. Heat is an enemy of beer, flavor-wise.
