So you are out in the woods and spot this...

You have been out for a few hours and pretty thirsty.
You are almost back to your vehicle and you spot this on the ground:









Seeing the pushed out bottom makes you think there is a chance...

Sure enough.  Unopened.

Whadda ya think?  ;D

Or find its rightful owner, throw it through his or her closed window and curse them for polluting the woods with a toxic chemical.

I would pick it up and head back to the car.

Then when I got home.... I would throw it in the trash.  ;)

No way, pushed out bottom would make me worry that it's unsafe.

If the can were properly intact, I might guzzle it if I were thirsty enough. Possibly while holding my nose. (Depends how flavorless it is, I suppose.  Never tried the stuff.)

I would not touch it. Judging by the color of the Rockies on the can, it's way to warm for my taste.  ;D

I can't see how wild variations in temp would affect the flavor very much when we're talking about KL. :P

Pick it up, crack it, dump it out, pack the can out and throw it in the recycling.

Beer snob?  I'd do the same with a canned craft beer.  I tend not to drink from containers I find in the woods.

Target practice. About the only thing that is good for. THEN I would properly dispose of the shot up can....

Where were you when I needed you?  Father-in-law had a bunch of that on vacation one time.  I had "Once" and I would have been much better off had I seen your advice prior to that.

If you can find the can, you haven't shot it enough.
