The Head on ya! - foamy head on beer

    Does a foamy head on beer have a purpose?

    On a pack of beer that I bought there's a bit about what to do.

    It says that a foamy head will "keep air out and carbonation in".

    I never heard this before, I didn't know that foam had a purpose.

    Aside from the above i like a foamy head on holiday not in Ireland as it seems they're trying to rip you off in Ireland with a big head.

    Keeps air out. Keeps the beer colder. Makes the beer look better. But most importantly, it alters the taste and gives the beer better mouthfeel.

    It's mostly optics. Look better
