sardine can where most or all of the top of the can pulls off. A pull
tab is one of those old-style tabs on a beverage can that pulls all
the way off. You hardly see them any more over here, as they've been
replaced by push-in tabs that remain attached to the can.

I don't know what the British call them, but in the US these are called "pop tops". You pull a ring and either peel back the metal top, or the ring pushes a tab inward. Those are pop tops bei uns.
>I do not know the official term (if there is any) but I would call it'peel-off lid'.
Peel-off lids usually don't have rings, and they are usually lids, rather than integrated into the can itself. They can even be made of paper. I vote for "pull-tab opener", which someone else posted.
- pull tab
V Nebrasce tomu rikame takhle. Pull the tab off the Pepsi can.
