That's also the impression I got about the other events from looking at comments on the Urquell Facebook page as well. This was the most disappointing aspect for me. After putting so much into it, and having no clear indication of where I came out in the competition. It really just felt like just a big marketing gimmick for Urquell to me in the end.
No decoction for my beer. This winter I'll mess around with that.

Last year there was no feedback either to the brewers - unless you talked to the judges immediately afterwards. I can understand the desire for feedback, but on the other hand, it cost nothing to enter, and they do throw a nice party with free beer and food.

Yeah, I was dissapointed that they didn't give out scoring sheets. I asked the Pilsner Urquell people if we could get any feedback at all about our beers, and they said no because the beers are all tasted anonomously. I even tried to find out where I placed between 4th and 8th, and they couldn't even tell me that. Hopefully they change that in next years competition since feedback is often the most beneficial part of entering a contest in the first place especially with the great judging panel they had!
