I know squat about competitions. Why are there years without gold medals? Is there a minimum score?
The way NHC works the category wins gold, silver, bronze, one each. So for example if a Dark American Lager wins Gold this year, then Munich Dunkel and Schwartsbeir will not. They are the 3 subcategories for category 4.

I would not take the web link as gospel. If you look there are some years with 2 golds in a category.
See Category 6, where there are 2 golds in 2004. There may be some where he missed a year. Still nice work.

Sometimes a different sub category wins the gold.
For example there are 5 different beers in the Light Lager category but only one wins a gold medal.  One year it could be Munich Helles and the next it could be Dortmunder Export.
