The ads ask, "What would it be like if you could perform real magic?" However, the method and technique hardly look like "real magic," and the resulting beer may or may not taste great (less filling?) or even be all that appropriate for consumption.
Shake Shake Shake
If you could perform real magic, would you really need to place your hand or a coaster over the glass and shake the glass to turn the fluid into beer? And in order to create a fizzy beer, you won’t be able to simply borrow a glass of water from a spectator as the ads imply, but have to fill the glass with a special, but commonly found drink.
Pounding Down a Cold One?
There’s no discussion on the DVD as to whether the beer would taste reasonably good. Finally, there’s the fact that beyond the touching there are other elements that get introduced into the beer itself.
The DVD offers adequate instructions on making gimmicks and handling the props. I just found the whole concept flawed and not very practical. It leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
