A&S Judging: Mead Criteria / Packaging?

Is there anything approaching a set of standard judging criteria for mead 
and other brewer's / vintner's products in SCA A&S competitions around 
Ansteorra? I haven't seen anything approaching one, but I have yet to enter 
(first batch of mead is happily bubbling now...)

The broader issue of standards for evaluating A&S entries may be something 
that we as Ansteorrans would prefer *not* to accept, such as exemplified by 
the judging criteria in effect for some neighboring kingdoms.  I don't 
particularly want to re-open that particular container of annelidae (can of 
worms), but would like some idea of whether I will be facing purely the 
individual tastes of a specific competition's judging team or comparison to 
some "ideal".
