Similarly, I was at a dinner at a convention last summer where the host was a professional beer taster. He had us pour a half a beer in a glass, take a drink or two and then asked us how many people attempted to get "the perfect pour?" Of course, the majority of guests put up their hand.

He then had us pour the second half of the same beer into another glass but told us to pour it quickly and not worry about foam. We then tasted and had to vote on which pour tasted better. I think it was 100% or extremely close to 100% in favor of the sloppy pour. He then explained the concept of CO2 not actually tasting that great and that a perfect pour should actually be, as much foam as you can manage without making a mess and assured us we would never be able to pour out all of the bubbles.

I actually like the aluminum flavor of a can of Coke. I think that makes me strange.

I like Coca Cola Classic, but I actually liked New Coke better.

Ignore him, this is one of his frequent psychological tests which he performs here.
On the plus side, anyone who agrees with him, gets free meds for a year.

I want the old Coke back that feels like it's dissolving all the teeth in your mouth every time you take a drink.

He's still got his Murph-shine.

That's actually brilliant marketing name. I wonder if the government would give out a second license for legal distillation? I'll just need a horrid amount of capital that I don't have.

Although........... I think that the Dragon's Den folks should be nice and loose once they have a few taste tests.
