Default American Vs British Pint Glass

I like the sleek look of the American pint glass but as far as utility is concerned the British with its bump wins out. I used to think the bump was only for keeping a grip when pissed but it also serves as a rim protector when the glass is tipped.

I voted British simply because it's what I'm accustomed to. After so many years it just feels right and familiar.

If I'm gonna hold a big one, I want it to be ribbed for my pleasure.

As long as it is full, I won't complain either way

British. I like the classic look and the weight and size of the glass just 'feel right' with the 20-22 oz. capacity.

I think there needs to be a fourth category...Both...I have a mix of both styles...Though I do tend to grab the british ones the most I guess...

I'm gonna have to go with the British pint. Why? Because its bigger duh! Also, the shape of the glass keeps a better head I think. But either way is fine with me. As long as its full that is.

When it comes to beer I'm pretty much going to vote British no matter what the question.
