Actually enjoying one of my Scottish Exports right now while reading the new guideline on them. There's nothing its missing. Finally! (Edit, meaning it doesn't have BBQd bog)It should be about your knowledge on those styles. In other words, if all one knows about a certain style is what the guidelines say, for example you've never tasted one... you ought to check the box that you can't judge those. Check the prefered box on the styles you really know.That's pretty much how I do it. It's part of the reason I'm retiring my Scotch ale from comps after this year. I love the style and have pretty much already proven I can brew a great one, so I hate excluding myself from judging them (although I'm probably the worst nightmare of people who can't brew a good one lol).
Interesting to see that Bellhaven is #1 now and Pelican is nipping at Orkneys heals.
