The truth is, ya just don't wanna be hit in the face by a celtic woman with a pint glass.....Give them a half, it's less painful.

The British one is the way to go because you actually get a pint (16 ounces) of beer! With the American pint, it would have to be to the rim for 16 ounces!
With the head, your getting about 14 ounces.
Watch out for the places using pint glasses the same size as the 16 oz but with an extra thick glass base. Those are 14 oz to the rim so with the head, you get about 12 ounces but they price you for a "pint"!

I like the British nonick style,no matter if it's English 16oz or American 12oz. Classic style that gives something to grab onto. I got one (broke the other!) George Killian's nonick I'm going to use later after I bottle my pm cascade pale ale in a bit. Still cleanin & filtering my starsan. Darn pets! Dang dog hair sticks like crazy. Gunna get the grains,super moss,etc for my next pm batch. I'm experimenting with converting my all extract pale ale into partial mash very soon for Christmas with NZ hops. I got a pound of them in the freezer,5 varieties.
