Got a blue ribbon for this beer though I am not sure what my score was yet. They switched to the 2015 guidelines at the last minute so I entered it as an international pale lager instead of an american premium lager. I can't find the thread where I was asking for style help but thanks to those that helped me.

Great job. Kudos !

Thanks guys. I got a blue ribbon for second beer which was great as well. They will be mailing my score sheets out which I am very curious about. I am hoping that I at least got in the high 30s...

Excellent - all lagers are a tough category to medal in - this past spring I had a 43 on a Dortmunder that didn't even medal in its category, but that was a very large competition with many highly experienced lager beer brewers, so I was happy with the score and figured that was worth my while entering (I'm not a big comp guy).  So, medaling in any of the lager categories is a tough thing to do and you should take pride in that!  Well done, sir!
