Delivery or, if earlier, the “best before” date (subject to such date not being exceeded prior to Delivery). Failure by the Customer to comply with this Condition 5.2, and to follow Greene King’s reasonable instructions to make the Goods

possession, removed from the vessel in which it was supplied, nor became accidentally spoiled or otherwise unfit for sale, nor any substance added to the beer and that no part of the beer consists of waste beer or sediments other than those forming naturally”.
5.5 To compensate the Customer for the supply of any Goods which are considered to be defective under the terms of these Conditions, Greene King shall give the Customer credit for Rejected Goods which it has agreed are unacceptable pursuant to this Condition 5. However, Greene King may reclaim any such credit if the Rejected Goods are subsequently found not to comply with Condition 5.2 and/or the circumstances outlined in Condition 3 13.2 or have been found to be adulterated and/or damaged, in whatever manner, whilst in the Customer’s possession contrary to the deemed declaration set out at Condition 5.4.
