What is a goblet of beer?

Why are beers served in different glasses?

As with wine, different glasses bring out and highlight different flavors in a beer. The aroma is largely trapped in the head of the beer and can bubble right off if you let it sit in a wide-mouth pint glass. A tulip-shaped glass with either with smooth curves or hard angles retains aroma in the bowl of the glass.
