Default What does infection taste like!?

Lol. Alright now that the nasty title is out of the way...

I made an irish red ale a while back (done around thanksgiving time or so). The beer was most likely infected because it had a pellicle on top of it. I bottled it anyway. As it turns out, it cleared up nicely and carbonated just fine. It is a beautiful looking beer.

It even tastes alright....almost. At first it tastes fine, but I am left with a bitter, metallic taste afterwards. Far more bitter than it could be by the 2 oz of hops I put in there...and different too. It has a coppery taste.

Anyone else experience this before? Not really too concerned with advice or anything just interested in hearing some stories!
