one of those situations where my entry got a 41.5 in first round and a 26 in the second. curious as to the comments.
Same here..... Had a 40+ regional Dortmunder that got crushed with a 26. However, in fairness, I pretty much saw it coming. I rebrewed and it just did not come out like the first one did. Thought it would do better than 26, but, it was certainly no medal winner for sure. My mild did ok, but I am guessing comments are going to say it was a bit "big" for style. Scottish 70 made Mini BOS, So I was pretty happy with that. Looking forward to seeing some of the thoughts on the sheets as well.
Got you both beat. A 42 in the first round for a BoPils (judged by a Master whom I know and respect) to a 23.5 in the finals .... Ouch! Tasted it last night - not as fresh, but 23.5?
Win some, lose some.
As I always say - Right Beer, Right Judge, Right Time
I've got all of you beat; a 45 in the first round and a 24 in the second. Can't wait to see those score sheets, I'm assuming it must have been a bottle issue. Since it tasted great at club night and was are only keg that kicked.
Man, even in losing, you win! Congrats!
