That must be the reason why it only got silver at the GABF...

Look at any of the winners for 2013 Cream Ale and get back to me on how great the judges are at GABF.

According to BJCP, the IBU range for ESB is 30-50, while for the APA it's 30-45. Though personally I do see some overlap between the styles.

I was describing a pale ale that I'm brewing and my friend said "isn't a pale ale an unalcoholic beer?" When I said no nicely and that the "pale refers to the color and taste" he said that I was definitely wrong.

I forgot about that one. I stand by my earlier diagnosis.

You can say what you want, but no one can deny that the Bourbon County line is amazing, by anyone's standard. I could care less who owns Goose Island when I drink a Bourbon County Proprietor's, probably the best beer of last year IMO.
