Can't say they change the taste, but they look

Summer Ale would still taste good out of the toilet..

Best description of that glass yet, I have a couple and I think a glass of any sort makes a difference, whether the uber-thin Sam Adams glass is all its hyped to be I don't know but the laser ring is cool.

There are a lot of things I haven't tried that I know won't make a difference. Nothing funny about it.

Knowledge comes from experience.

Something I have in spades with both glass and beer.

One look at the that glass (if you have the experience, and it sounds like you don't), and I can tell you it won't make a difference.

The bottom of the glass is etched creating more surface area and nucleation sites for the CO2 to come out of the beer. That is, it's intended to make your beer bubble and give you the aroma of the beer. Since CO2 is heavier than "air" it sinks, the shape of the glass is supposed to hold that aroma/CO2 once it comes out of solution.

Does it work, I don't know. I think a regular snifter would do pretty much the same thing.

Don't count out the glass as having a pretty serious effect on the beer. This one is likely just a gimmick, but having the proper glassware for a good beer is very important.

Most packies (liquor stores for you non-MA types) get them as promotional deals so if you are a regular, ask your local guy if you can have a few.

So you're saying it will taste exactly the same as it would from a bottle? May not make a big difference as opposed to other glasses but doesn't mean it won't make a difference. I think that beer tastes better in a glass, and shape of the glass does come into play. But I've never used the one with the laser etching, and that is why i didn't comment on the glass.

And glad to see that you can read my profile

Nate --

Where did I suggest that beer from a bottle tastes the same as beer from a glass?

This whole thread is about whether a particular shape of glass, or maybe a logo-ed one, makes a difference.

Of course beer tastes better in a glass than out of the can or bottle, but (within reason) -- the general shape of the glass, or a particular logo, will not impact the taste of the beer.

BTW -- FWIW -- beer tastes best out of a glass mug -- 1 liter in size, faceted, with a blue bishop's crook logo embedded in it, while seated on a long, narrow wooden bench at a long narrow wooden table located at approximately 48.13 N, 11.55 E.

Neither post before really said what you meant. The first was extremely vague could have been taken a few different ways since you didn't elaborate at all, and that's all I was commenting on.

And that's the Munich Hofbräuhaus right?

That's where you're wrong. Taken directly from BeerAdvocate

Glassware for Beer


So what's in a beer glass? Hopefully beer, but there's much more to be found. Though some beer novices say "the vast majority of glassware is just marketing," this couldn't be further from the truth. As BeerAdvocates, we feel that beer drinkers deserve better than this. So here's the real deal ...

Sure, there's a marketing component to beer glassware, but one only needs to look beyond the branding to discover that something bigger is taking place. As soon as the beer hits the glass, its color, aroma and taste is altered, your eye candy receptors tune in, and your anticipation is tweaked. Hidden nuances, become more pronounced, colors shimmer, and the enjoyment of the beer simply becomes a better, more complete, experience.

Still think it's just marketing? Well the sophomoric pun "head is good" has a mature side. Scientific studies show that the shape of glassware will impact head development and retention. Why is this important? The foam created by pouring a beer acts as a net for many of the volatiles in a beer. What's a volatile? Compounds that evaporate from beer to create its aroma, such as hop oils, all kinds of yeast fermentation byproducts like alcohol, fusels and fruity esters, spices or other additions. So a glass that promotes a healthy foam head may enhance the trapping of certain volatiles. And as varying levels of head retention and presentation are desired with different styles of beers, different styles of glassware should be used accordingly. Presentation marries science.

So which glassware do you use? The answer can often be overwhelming. In Europe, especially Belgium, each brand of beer will often have its own glass. In fact, some breweries have been known to engineer the glass before the beer, and many bars will also stock unique glassware for every brand of beer they serve, which could be hundreds or thousands. And while it's always a good idea to use glassware designed by the brewery for a specific brand of beer, sometimes this is not an option. But fret not! We've complied a quick guide of recommended glassware that will cover most beers and arm you with a very versatile arsenal of glassware.

No Tim, I'm right, and I'm glad you quoted that to prove it.

Nowhere in that quote does it say the glass shape affects the taste of the beer.

I had assumed the OP was looking into whether the taste is affected.

Your quote only deals with the presentation, specifically how the beer foams. As does the rest of that web site article (briefly skimmed). That's of course, if you think Beer Advocate is the authority on all things beer, which it clearly is not. And their reviews of the beers prove it. Now, were you to quote Michael Jackson, that would be different.

But thank you for making a good point, i.e., that the shape does not change the taste.
