                    letters. These can be found at www.BJCP.org.

                13. Beers are judged according to the style guidelines for the category and
                    subcategory as listed by the entrant. Directors, judges or registrars will

                    sheet.

                14. If there are not enough entries in any one class to create a meaningful
                    competition, the superintendent reserves the right to combine classes
                    to create a flight for judging and prize purposes.
                15. Scoring will be based on the following:
                    Taste .......................................................................... 40%
                    Appearance ................................................................ 24%
                    Overall Impression .................................................... 20%
                    Mouthfeel .................................................................. 10%
                    Bouquet Aroma .......................................................... 6%
                16. First, second and third places will be awarded to the top three eligible
                    entries in each judging flight. The first place winner in each judging
                    flight will also receive a mug and will advance to the Homebrew Beer
                    “Best of Show” round. Please note that mead and cider entries are
                    not eligible for best of show, but will still be eligible for first, second
                    and third place awards in their respective judging flights. In addition,
                    no more than two honorable mention ribbons will be awarded per
                    judging flight, if so deemed by the judges.
