    Default New CAMRA beer scoring website

    Have any of the CAMRA-types tried to navigate the new NBSS website yet?


    http://beerscoring.org.uk/


    I find it bloody hard work, not intuitive and very clunky!

    Thoughts?

    Written by someone who doesn't know what they're doing and has never worked on a commercial basis.

    Very slow running and very user unfriendly.

    I tried scoring a beer I had last night, Hornbeam Francesca, it's not on the database of course and there's no way for me to add it.

    I had to put the beer name in the remarks section.

    Total crap and I won't be using it again.

    Glad to see you've invested my money so wisely CAMRA.

    Agreed! If you input the name of a pub and it's not found, clicking the button takes you to the map where the name of the pub is in the town field! If you follow the other route, inputting the name of the town next to the pub that's not in their database, clicking the button takes you to the map where the name of the town is in the pub field!!!

    And if you add the pub and then visit it again, it has to be added again.

    I entered my Chelmsford and Leicester pubs, and found it ok by stating town then start typing the pub names and it found them. Maybe I find them ok as I usually only get into GBG pubs so they are going to be listed. Can't be chewed with individual beer scores though. Got through 16 beers between us at the Salmon's new brewery fest yesterday and no way going to mess with individual beer scores.
    Brill fest by the way and still on for next couple of days.

    I believe the NBSS2 database is linked into the WhatPub.com database and that's no where near as comprehensive as it should be, but it's supposed to be better than NBSS1 which could give umpteen versions of a pub's name and address.

    Hopefully it will improve, but I can't get on either site at present to look
    There are many diseases,
    that strike people's kneeses,
    Covid19! is one by name
    It comes from the East
    Packed in bladders of yeast
    So the Chinese must take half the blame.
