I don't see why it wouldn't, the head just wouldn't last as long since the gradient for c02 to the atmosphere would be larger.

Wouldn't you know after reading this thread on Friday, I happened to be at a restaurant that had the surger..... so I just had to try it.

my take....complete marketing gimmick.

Tasted like your standard guinness out o' a can. If anything, I did not like it as much as the standard guinness.

To me, if an establishment wants to serve guinness and be taken seriously....pony up and get the proper nitrogen dispensing equipment.

For some odd reason, I just remembered that Mr Wizard did a similar experiment.... oh... 20 years ago... using sonics on a glass of rootbeer? Something like that, with a similar experience.

I've never really had a problem pouring a glass of Guinness, but all the local pubs are useless. Either I'll get a glass that is 50% head, or no head at all. And the bartenders do not like being told how to do there job.

I wonder if the purger had lazy, ignorant bartenders in mind. Pour a Guinness half-assed, then just "purg" it for the head.
