If I were the judge, I wouldn't want to defend that one, but as the perspective of a new judge, I had a really hard time trying to say specific things about each entry that were unique and thoughtful. This ability diminished as I progressed through the flight.....worse at beer 9 (eisbock) after 4 dopplebocks, 3 standard bocks, and a couple of Maibocks.... yikes.
Certainly, the filter comes down a notch or two when you've been tasting since 9am on your third day of judging. It is no excuse to be rude, however. Hopefully, you can take those comments and reference what the other judge was saying and get something useful out of it.
