Beer Scores - Top 20 Pubs

This Month's Top 20 Pubs for Beer Quality

Beer Quality is assessed by the appearance, aroma, taste and aftertaste of a particular beer in a particular pub on a particular occasion. Short measures without being offered a top-up can also affect the score, as can a bad beer not being graciously replaced.

It's not about the taster's personal likes or dislikes. After all, they are likely to select a beer that suits their personal liking at the point of ordering.

The same beer in two different pubs could be given two different scores. It's all down to the way the pub keeps and presents its beers.

The pubs below currently have the highest beer quality scores averaged over a rolling three calendar months, a month at a time. They are displayed in alphabetical order. The second column shows how often a pub has been in the top twenty over the past 12 calendar months.

The table is based on beer scores entered by CAMRA members from many branches including visitors to Wyre Forest.

Period Covered: August, September, October 2018

N.B. On occasion an individual pub may not receive enough scores within the period to be representative and cannot therefore be included. Omission from this table does not therefore imply that the beer quality is poor.
