I'll be interested to read the score sheets. My lowest score was for my imperial stout which scored a 43 recently. I guess that's the vagaries of judging.3 out for 4 mid-30s and up. So I'm pleased, I guess.

Well all 4 of my entries made it to the mini-BOS round. The IIPA didn't medal though (35). The other scores I got were 40.5 (1st-sweet mead), 38.5 (3rd-Tripel), and 35 (1st-xmas ale)
Nice. I've given up making x-mas ales. I just don't enjoy the spices enough to have 5 gallons around.
gimme a Jubelale over this christmas spiced stuff any day.Cat 21 is one of the few I avoid judging if at all possible.
I made my last pumpkin ale about 10 years ago. Everybody loved it - I had a pint and gave the rest away. All of a sudden I hit the saturation point with spices. +1 to SN Celebration as a great holiday ale . I usually brew something big like a Quad or Wee Heavy as my holiday ale.

I prefer to judge those categories because they're more subjective and interesting. I find it amazing what people will enter in Specialty.
