If you're content drinking beer out of a can or bottle, or think the foam at the top of a glass of beer is wasted space, you're doing it wrong. Adam Jadhav of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch explains how to pour beer so you get the most head (foam) and why you should do it—because pouring and foam release the beer's aroma. "Our tongues are far more limited than our noses in sensory perception," Jadhav says. Make sure you use a clean, room temperature glass, and don't tilt it when you pour in the beer.
