Default First Beer Competition

So yesterday I entered my first homebrew competition. My American Pale ale got a 31, and my Specialty Porter got a 34. I know these are not GREAT scores, but I think its good for my 9th and 10th batches of beer.

Actually those are good scores! Anything 30 and above is good and the 34 is approaching an excellent beer.

Those are good scores. The last flight I judged (11 Bitters), only one did better than 35 and 6 over 30.
