Pros: tulip shaped great for aroma. fits in the had well. came with a beer!
Cons: the summer ale that came with the glass was not very good. generally I like sam adams.
Recommended? Yesthis was great to get as a promo. I wouldn't buy it though. The paint on the glass looks cheap. It looks smaller than I expected but it fits a bottle of beer.

Pros: -excellent design -retains head -the laser etching actually works
Cons: -feels gimmicky
Recommended? YesIt's a glass. I like it, but it's just a glass. It actually does work pretty well with any kind of beer, even retaining the head nicely on wheat beers.

Pros: It looks neat, does seem to give many beers a more open aroma
Cons: Very thin, always feels like it will break easily
Recommended? YesI got this for free (but the price wouldn't let me put 0 in up top) when I took the brewery tour at Sam Adam's in Boston. They tell you of how to get it at the end of the tour, by going to the first bar that served their beer. It's a neat glass, some of the features seem like gimmicks but doing a side-by-side comparison of the exact same brews in a normal pint glass vs this one does seem to give more aroma presence than others, but not much else is different.
Pros: Looks great, many of the features seem to help with presentation and experience.
Cons: Expensive for what it is, being thin also makes them fragile.
Recommended? NoMy wife got me a set of these at full price for Christmas. I enjoy using them as my everyday drinking glass and many of the claimed features seem to improve the drinking experience. Although shockingly BMC wasn't improved.
If you can find them on sale, or free get some!
