Not really. Crappy beer in cans taste crappy, and beer in cans or bottles that have been subjected to high heat taste crappy, but there are some fine beers available in cans these days, and I see more every month.
Canning equipment is a big big investment, as are the cans (since you have to buy a lot at a time), so craft brewers haven't traditionally used them, but more and more are.
If possible I pour beer from bottles or cans into glasses, since the smell is a big part of it, especially for very hoppy beers.
Check out the Resin from Sixpoint in Brooklyn. It's a very nice beer. In a can.
