Judging criteria is a topic that gets discussed frequently...in the
laurels circle and out of it, at A & S and Colleges.  There are no
standardized criteria yet for brewing (or any other discipline).  If you
have any suggestions...please e-mail them to me and we can discuss it!
If any other laurels are out there....PLEASE comment!

in service.......
