    Yes due to the shape.Mobys glass seems to be more a chalice or a goblet or even a wine glass as it doesnt have the aesthetically pleasing shape of a tulip (camra speak.)

    It's a wine glass.

    I'm not too fussy about the type of glass I get, although I would always prefer a conical or nonic to a tulip and think stemmed glasses are best used in smaller measures for 'sipping' beers such as strong Belgian beers. I don't really like handles either, although they seem to be the default choice for cask ale in a lot of hipster pubs around these parts. The one I really hate though is the tall thin 'pilsner' glass, of the sort you'd expect to get a pint of Peroni in - a sure sign that you're about to get a dud pint of ale.

    Oh I hate those for halves of ale - they knock the condition out!

    These are obviously the kind of glasses preferred by someone. But can you guess who?

    Yes, but strangely he apparently drove straight past the shop and down to the river. Can't think why...
