    Spring is here and it's time for the April competition - lager/kolsch/pseudo lager including both European and American styles. Some of you have sent me lagers before which have been great, so I know there are some good ones out there.

    As usual, PM me for address details. Currently I'm looking at 2nd weekend in May for judging.

    Does a California Common brewed with American lager yeast qualify? I bottled one yesterday.

    Bumping this to see if anyone else wants to get involved.

    There's a £10 Beers of Europe voucher in it for the winner.

    Can you pm your address.

    I have a Vienna lager that been conditioning a while and I don't drink lager that often so it would be good to get an honest opinion

    I’ve got a pseudo lager that I think is disgusting but my wife thinks I’m overreacting and says it’s alright. I know it won’t win but I might enter just to see. I’ve not decided yet though.

    @Leon103 I will PM you.

    @MickDundee I'm very happy to give constructive criticism.

    The judging will be May 11th, I have a few friends coming round with varying degrees of beer knowledge who can help me out. I find it equally interesting hearing the opinion of those with a developed palate who know what to look out for in certain styles, to those who only know whether it's 'nice or not'.

    Now here's the thing. I've got a Kolsch yeast pseudo lager based on a modified 1920's Barkley Perkins recipe that, when it's good, I'm happy with. However, some of the bottles are gushers and taste pants. Do I risk it or not?

    My kolsch is a bit past its best so not worth entering but I may have something else...
    If so I'll get it posted tomorrow.

    Hi I brewed my first Kolsch at the end of February never had anything judged and may be a little late to get it to you depending on location could you possibly DM me address.

    Cheers Jm
