From 1st February 2005 we will
have a new beer scoring system to rate pubs 0-5 from the previous 0-6
system, the following are guidelines for marks;
– 5.0 Absolutely superb
pub with a great range of beer all in top notch order. Remember a 5 means it
will never be beaten for quality and would probably walk national pub of the
Fantastic Pub with a number of great Real Ales in excellent
condition. Top end of the GBG range of pubs a good contender for our pub of the
– 4.0 GBG
Pub quality, maybe with not quite the range of beers as the higher marks, but
definitely worth including in the guide. You would still recommend this pub to
your friends for beer quality.
– 3.5 Within
the borderline of GBG quality. Consistently good beer but maybe only 1 or 2
beers but easily worth recommending to anyone.
– 3.0 Just
below the borderline. The type of pub you like to visit, has some interesting
guest beers and may be worthwhile in the future. Use this as a marker for the
future or an indication if you are unsure. It will trigger other visits.
– 2.5 Pubs
in this range, the beer quality is unpredictable maybe with a fairly staid range
and little imagination. The pub is probably more interested in selling other
things. Just out of interest for CAMRA.
– 2.0 Consistently
poor quality Real Ale, poured with no imagination or care. Unimaginative range
and little effort. Often no beer available.
– 1.5 Absolutely
awful Real ale, uninviting pub. A place to avoid. Inconsistent supply.
– 1.0 No
Real Ale available.
Remember all marks count towards the Pubs for the GBG, we need to know our good and bad pubs. We want to know your opinion of the pub so no need to be swayed by others. Keep entering your marks throughout the year as they help to build a total picture.
