Default Scottish Ale Category?

I am entering a Scottish ale in a competition, but not sure what category to enter it in. I have it narrowed down to "Amber & Brown Beers" or "Strong Ales".

I am not sure which it fits better in but it definitely doesn't fit the other options. Any advice?

Why would you do that when Irish & Scottish Ales have their own category? It's going to depend on the strength of your Scottish on whether you enter in 9A, 9B, 9C, or 9E.

What was the OG?

edit - and strange that they are using BJCP forms, but not BJCP categories.

Amber and Brown ales, but I'd mark 9C on your entry forms since the site says it's getting judged by BJCP style guidelines. Your OG is a little high for that, but too low for 9E. 1.062 is way too low for strong ales.

I think that's what I am having the problem with, do I enter the categories listed or those in the style guidelines?
