Beer Scoring

Any CAMRA members logging into WhatPub.com should be aware that every pub entry has a ‘Submit Beer Scores’ box at the top of the page. These scores are available to the local CAMRA Branch should they wish to use them for tracking the best performing pubs in their area. We in Shrewsbury & West Shropshire CAMRA certainly make use of them, particularly when it comes to selection of our top pubs for the CAMRA Good Beer Guide (GBG) each year. As our area covers over 300 pubs, we need the help of all local & visiting CAMRA members to monitor the quality of the beer on offer at all these pubs on a regular basis. This system allows us to do that.

The scoring is principally based around a 6 point scoring scale (though half points are also included), the following being the guide we all refer to:

0. No cask ale available.
1. Poor. Beer that is anything from barely drinkable to drinkable with considerable resentment.
2. Average. Competently kept, drinkable pint but doesn’t inspire in any way, not worth moving to another pub but you drink the beer without really noticing.
3. Good. Good beer in good form. You may cancel plans to move to the next pub. You want to stay for another pint and may seek out the beer again.
4. Very Good. Excellent beer in excellent condition.
5. Perfect. Probably the best you are ever likely to find. A seasoned drinker will award this score very rarely.
