    When you shake a can of beer,,,

    What will happen when you shake a can of beer and open it?
    I know it, but can't say it in English.

    Colloquially, sometimes we say it "shoots" or "sprays."

    "Be careful opening that beer - I dropped the can before and it might shoot all over you."
