what is your favourite pint glass for cask ale? do you have a different one for different times? Dimple? Conical? Nonic? Tulip?

The only way in my opinion to serve cask ale is in a conical!!
Tulips should be outlawed!!

good well informed views from mike as ever. conical is just a little gastropub for my liking. i don't dislike and we use them at artichoke land. we also use dimples. of late i've had a nostalgic love affair with the Nonic. how would we kiss if we banned two lips?

Not really fussed to be honest. If I had to choose, bog-standard conical.

Dimple for quaffing bitter for me. Nonic if there's no dimple.

Don't get me started on those bloody Teku glasses (for #evilkegfilth).

First choice conical. Dimple ok for supping traditional bitter but too heavy for hoppy pales.
The glass should compliment the contents in my view.
