Pintability: The Rating System

Pintability is judged on basic factors (creaminess, tastiness etc) which I’ll advise per post ultimately assigning a rating to each establishment’s effort. The pint will fall somewhere on the scale of undrinkable (1/4) to perfection (4/4) as follows:

  • My goodness! Is that Guinness? (1/4)
  • Not Guinness time, not here anyway. (2/4)
  • Guinness time. (3/4)
  • My goodness! Now that’s Guinness! (4/4)

The minimum that should be expected from any self respecting Guinness vendor should be a 3/4; tasty, bit o’the cream, as it should be, no problem going again & again in such a place. It’s Guinness time & we’re happy. Anything below that & they’re just not trying.

Note: Pints at an event (Event G’s) are, in general, fairly poor, scoring a 2 at best. For this reason, under such circumstances I class a score of a 2 as “event drinkable”, as in, you have no choice so it’ll do.
