The beer was oxidized

I seriously doubt this.  See my earlier comments above.  Have you entered this beer into 3 or 4 competitions?  If not, you really can't know how good this beer is or is not.

Why don't you think it was oxidized? Both judges noted it however one noted a bunch of other off flavors that I don't detect. I still am not sure what an oxidized beer tastes like necessarily but this has that wet cardboard sweetness going on that I hear so much about.

Depending on how you bottled from the keg, it's possible.  Particularly so with a light lager.

But I think that oxidation is a lot like astringency in that many judges will say it's there when it really isn't.

I think there are a lot of judges who will take any caramel sweetness in a beer and call it oxidation.

Thanks guys. Compared to prior versions of this beer, something is definitely off. It still isn't bad just different and not as good.
