    Hi All,

    I have two beers ready:

    • Bavarian Lager Helles 4C
    • Screen Shot 2019-12-05 at 17.18.09.png
    • Svelte Pivo Czech Premium Pale Lager 3b
    • Screen Shot 2019-12-05 at 17.19.46.png
    I was thinking about entering Scottish Craft brewers Comp, but they only have a 2A International Pale Lager class that I'm close to.

    Any thoughts on which would be a better match, I was thinking about the Helles due to the lower IBU?

    On paper your helles is probably closest but you shouldnt base it on that alone if at all. You don't need to tell the judges what the vital stats are. Read the style guidelines and enter the one that you think tastes/smells closest to an international pale lager. Look at the classic examples listed, buy the ones you can get your hands on, and do a side by side comparison with your our lager.

    thanks, Jon, I hadn't thought of doing some commercial side by sides; I'm always up for a beersperiment :)
