    Drinking a bottle of my Schwarzbier to see if I can find the flaws judges mentioned. I couldn't - the bottle didn't spew, there was no acetic or diacetyl characteristic.... Maybe they got the one bad bottle, don't know. But aside from being too roasty for style, there wasn't anything I could tell wrong with the beer. Gern B., you've had the beer, what do you think?

    I could drink a pint or two. Did they actually specify diacetyl and acetic? If its there I can't taste it. Who knows. A beer judge can only comment on the sample in front of him. But diacetyl should be in all the bottles,not just one. If its there at all.

    It's the only one that spewed. I'm going through the same mystery with my "naked porter". The bottles are spewing AND the first one I tasted seemed contaminated. Further testing has revealed that the bottles are spewing, likely a result of formation of mineral crystals due to adding chalk to the mash. They taste great but spew. The effect is rather like adding Mentos to soda - the bubbles can form on the crystals rapidly. Every Schwarzbier I have opened has been tame and tasty so I'll chalk this up to the judges.

    The same competition, our table had a bad bottle. We asked the steward to open the second one to make sure we weren't just unlucky. I don't think I was afforded that courtesy, from what I could tell.

    Drinking a Shock Top Clone, Belgian White, I'm liking this more and more as apposed to my normal III IPA beer, seams to hold flavor longer when stored

    I don't know if this post belongs in this thread or the other one! I'm drinking my all grain Munich Helles. I sure wish I had a bottle of the extract left to compare!
