CAMRA REVITALISATION PROJECT - THIRD MEMBER SURVEY asks:

10. It is recognised that there are many ways in which “high quality” can be defined, and individual tastes will vary based on subjective assessment. The following descriptors are amongst those that have been suggested as being essential characteristics of “high quality” beer which is not what CAMRA defines as real ale. Do you agree?

Beer with full flavour regardless of its processing

Brewed without the use of cost-saving additional or replacement ingredients

Unpasteurised


Personally the cost savings one is tricky. Because sometimes it is possible to save on costs without materially impacting the product. And replacing ingredients: are hope pellets definitively better than whole hops? Mmmm...

A guy did say to me he'd unpasteurised Budvar at the brewery and it taste fantastic. And I've had good experiences of unpasteurised beer. But does that mean the pasteurised beers are not "high quality"?

They also ask

11. Are there any other descriptions you would suggest?

Tricky survey!
