GBG Ratings

This page contains information and options only available to members to have logged in.
Please login to make use of member options, or continue without logging in to view the public version of the page.

Members who are logged in are invited to rate beer in pubs serving real ale in the branch area.
Each member is allowed to rate the beer in each pub once per calendar month.
Members must not submit ratings for pubs which they have not visited during the month.
Ratings should be solely based on the quality of the beer. Factors such as the price, range of beers on offer or the type of pub should not affect your judgement.
Ratings entered in 2024 will be used to rank local pubs for the 2025 Pub of the Year competition, and for possible inclusion in the 2026 edition of the Good Beer Guide.

Beer Rating Scheme

5PerfectProbably the best you are ever likely to find. A seasoned drinker will award this score very rarely.
4.5Very good/PerfectPossibly close to the best you ever had, but not for sure.
4Very goodExcellent beer in excellent condition.
3.5Good / Very goodYou will probably stay here rather than move on.
3GoodGood 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.
2.5Average / GoodIt is better than average but perhaps not a definite good.
2AverageCompetently kept, drinkable pint but doesn't inspire in any way, not worth moving to another pub but you drink the beer without really noticing.
1.5Poor / AverageYou think of finishing your ale and moving on.
1Poor Beer that is anything from barely drinkable to drinkable with considerable resentment.
0.5Undrinkable / PoorBeer undrinkable, so poor you have to take it back or can't finish it.
0No real aleNo cask ale available or so poor you have to take it back or can't finish it.
