Two simple ways to pour the perfect pint of Guinness

St Patrick's Day is with us again, and the world is turning into a sea of Guinness drinkers.

And the last thing that good old Arthur Guinness would want is for us to be drinking his precious product in the incorrect way, so we consulted with Fergal Murray, the Guinness Master Brewer, to find out exactly the right way to pour the black stuff - whether in a pub, or out of a can in the comfort of your own home.

Here are your instructions: use them wisely. And if the barman's doing it wrong, tell him (nicely).
