Each beer was blind-judged against a set of guidelines - similar to, but not the same as the BJCP ones.Why so many "Not awarded"?
The most disturbing result :blink:
Best International Lager Hahn Super Dry, Tooheys, New South Wales, Australia
Like I said above, beer categories are judged against a set of style guidelines (not unlike BJCP), obviously many of those guidelines cater for the mainstream type beers, and hence some of them do well in those categories. I very much doubt Budvar would have been entered in the same category as Hahn Super Dry, and there could be many reasons why it was not given a medal including how well the beer traveled etc.and Budvar didn't score anything.....no wonder we keep getting shit thrown at us....even those 'in the know' reckon the shit is the shit...
Naturally, with a Big Red Cock you would expect Ross to come first h34r: :lol:I just read through the complete results - for once I could see results that gell with my expectations, either the judging is getting really good or my taste in beer is improving.
Well done Oud Beersal!
Obviously the "caution - this beer contains a flayed cock" worked in your favour Brother Ross, congrats to all the new craft breweries BTW, well done.
