I dunno, feels like a teensy bit of a sooky complaint to me. Some say that acceptance, good grace and humility works wonders in eradicating the taste of sour grapes from great expectations deflated. Chin up champ, its not the end of the earth, the sun should still rise tomorrow and I'd simply accept the judging roulette didn't land on my entry this time, take something positive away from the experience and value the feedback.
The state and national comps' tireless volunteer effort is always greatly appreciated and respected in my eyes.
Oh and spare a thought for the poor buggers that somehow find themselves qualified for the Nats, entered a beer with zero expectation but then had to turn around and haul home a bloody big gong, just wait till we hear them all start bitching, moaning and complaining...
My entries obviously didn't age well - I had an Amber Ale and an experimental low-alc Dark Mild, both scored relatively low. Judging comments on my scoresheet for the Mild also indicated it should've been entered in the Low Alcohol category, but that's not correct, it was too low in alcohol to fit the criteria (by a solid margin - the entry was 1.2%ABV too low). Shit happens.
I picked up a 2nd for the one that won at states, and had another beer that must have got hot or had something else go wrong with packaging/handling so it bombed after taking 2nd at states... a reminder I'm still an amateur!
Fact of life for me is I'm never going to have time to re-brew between states/nationals all of the cubes I entered in states/nationals were cubed before Australia Day... just getting them pitched can be a challenge with work and life getting in the way!
