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.

Has to be the dimple, nothing compares to it.

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.
