Spillages down the side? Check. No foam being formed? Check.
If your beer resembles cold tea rather than a frosty glass of deliciousness, the 'pope of foam' (and brewing scientist), Charles Bamforth has the solution.
Not only an art form, pouring beer can affect the taste of your beer too. So go forth and pour your bottle with vigour and release that foam steadily.
And remember, opening your beer in a civilised manner never harmed anyone.
