  1. The ornamental design for a beverage can, as shown and described.

FIG. 1 is a front elevation view of a beverage can illustrating our new design;

FIG. 2 is a rear elevation view thereof;

FIG. 3 is a left side elevation view thereof;

FIG. 4 is a right side elevation view thereof;

FIG. 5 is a top plan view thereof;

FIG. 6 is a bottom plan view thereof;

FIG. 7 is a first cross sectional view thereof;

FIG. 8 is a second cross sectional view thereof; and,

FIG. 9 is a third cross sectional view thereof.

The closely spaced, gapped line pairs in FIGS. 1-4 are representative of a transition in the slope of the exterior surface of the can. The inner most solid line in each of FIGS. 7 and 9 and the single solid line in FIG. 8 are representative of the can wall cross section which is too small to be represented by double lines and cross hatching.

The broken line showing in FIGS. 1-9, including the top, a portion of the bottom, and the entire interior of the beverage can, are for illustrative purposes only and form no part of the claimed design.
