That sounds like a wonderful experience, Andy.
It really depends on beer style.
Carbonation level certainly affects your perception of the flavors of beer. I don't think it is accurate to say that there is universal agreement about this concept or the science behind it.
Releasing the carbonation enhances your ability to perceive lots of different compounds, especially aromatics. It also gets rid of the "bite" that excess carbonation can convey (which is often perceived as additional bitterness).
OTOH, most people don't like flat beer, and releasing all/most of the CO2 early in your drinking experience isn't really conducive to enjoying the entire beverage.
Yes, you *should* pour your beer in a glass if you want to taste it. That's why most Corona is drank directly from the bottle. You guys already know that a huge portion of your perception of flavor comes from what you smell, and it's pretty hard to get a good sniff of something still contained in a bottle or a can.
However, to assert that - for ALL styles - you should effect a vigorous pour is to oversimplify not only the process, but also the tremendous variation of flavors and styles available. Not all beers present the same levels of sweetness, bitterness, etc. Not all beers are designed with the same level of carbonation, and you see style-specific glassware all over the world that relates NOT just to branding, but also to how the brewer thinks the beer is best experienced. And temperature also plays a part into not only perception of the flavors, but also the effectiveness of the carbonation or its release.
What any of this has to do with those robber-baron, rat-bastards at Netflix, I'm not sure.
