For example, if a beer scores a 41 vs 39 in the same cat. and the judges decide that the 39 is just a more appealing beer to them do they assign the 39 with a ribbon?
I think you misunderstood darwin. He's saying placing doesn't matter, what matters is the feedback you get.

Higher score is higher placement.... why would they rate a more appealing beer a 39 and a less appealing a 41, but give the ribbon to the 39? I don't think anyone would compete if that's how it worked.

I did read in a comp rules section (not particularly this comp) that when assigning a place to an entry, it is the judges discretion based on the consensus of the panel to who's beer gets what place based on the best tasting beer. A higher scored beer does not automatically mean they will place higher. Scores of those who are awarded a place are usually not listed for this reason.

The electoral college has this same rule too. Hah

I've helped judge one contest so far. (Hoping to take the exam in Aug.) We took the highest 5 or so in each category and tasted them again before assigning a place. Scores from 1-50 can drift higher or lower while judging a flight of several dozen beers. Pitting the best against each other at the end makes sure the best one actually wins.
