Do they have any markings to indicate what kind of plastic they are?

Simplest explanation is that the beer itself was different...different batches, or more likely given BMC's ridiculously good consistency, different ages. Longer time on the shelf for one batch perhaps. I mean, sitting in the back of a store refrigerator for weeks is a sort of cold conditioning....
Seems like "metallic" is off the table at least, at least by this test.
Nyakavt, since I hadn't had any Miller in at least 4 months and didn't taste either one before the test, I could not directly or immediately say which one was from a bottle or a can... what I was able to do was put them in order as to which ones tasted the exact same... ie the two glasses that were from cans were together and the two glasses that were from bottles were together. Try it and you'll see what I mean. Thats what kind of surprised me, I liked the extra bitterness of the can. The bottles are cleaner... softer might be a better word for it?
Oh ok, I didn't realize you did them all together. This is just as good as a triangle, even a little more difficult since you had to pair down the like beers. Really want to try this now.
Last night I made a pale ale that was sort of moderately hop bursted. All the bittering was done within the last 20 minutes and the latest additions were at 2 and 1 minutes. I'll bet it has a nice aroma.
There's IPA's made with this technique- all late additions. Wish I could find the link...
