Didn't look like a joke to me.  I've seen that level of quality, and worse, from real competitions.

That scares me. I made it up to be humorous and took a photo. My goal is to do better than that in reality.
Yeah, I thought it was a real one too. :)

Me, too.  I've seen so many bad score sheets I didn't even give it a second thought.
It took a hint for me to get the rubbery smell joke.

Ahh experience.

Just got my sheets back from NHC first round and on one of the ones that didn't make it (pretty sure it would have if not for what I am about to share) I had three sheets in the high 30's with evident erasures that appear to have it in the low 40's and one at 31 that reads like the judge was drinking a different beer. Flaws galore that apparently only that judge could perceive. From cheesy hops to burning alcohol flavor. Also, apparently too many esters for an english barley wine (???)

anyway. This will be the only complaining I do about this but I thought it was cogent to this discussion and my wife won't let me talk about it at home soo....

Four judges? Showoff. :P
Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.

I took 1st in strong ale in that region, when I get my sheets back I'll let you know how they look.  Of course with 30 entries I'd hope there were at least 3-4 flights for the category. 

I've judged a dozen strong ales in a flight before and that wasn't fun

Congrates! mine was actually in cat 23 because it had maple syrup in it. I imagine judgeing 28 cat 23 beers is even more overwhelming than strong ales though.

I've also judged that many in a flight and on the contrary it was great fun.
