National Beer Scoring Scheme

CAMRA uses the National Beer Scoring Scheme to allow members to record on-line their views on the quality of the beers anywhere in the country. We use it to assist in our pub selections for inclusion in the Good Beer Guide. Alternatively you can submit your scores using cards.

What do the scores mean?

  1.  Undrinkable. No cask ale available or so poor you have to take it back or can’t finish it.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.

Why bother?

By using this tool and entering your beer scores you are helping provide CAMRA at national level with real time inteligence on the pubs you visit and the beer you drink. This info is important to the campaign as a whole.

Here in the Tyneside and Northumberland branch area it is NBSS scores added by you & other local members that we use each year to determine the shortlist of pubs we survey for entry into the next edition of the CAMRA Good Beer Guide. So by completing beer scores you have a personal effect on local GBG entries.
