+1 category: SMaSH (Single Malt and Single Hop)
Any BJCP2015 category possible, but it is necessary to give the exact subcategory and all necessary additional information. Furthermore the type of malt and the hop must be named as well. The aim of this category is to proof that brilliant beers can brewed with simple ingredients!
So the beers in the SMaSH category cannot have:
-more than on malt and hop in the recipe
-cannot contain fruit or spice or any other additives
Cannot go through any extraordinary handling like wooden maturing.
