My keg beer is tasting really bitter..
 
I have a couple of beers on tap. A kolsch and a molson clone. They were tasting really good , untill I went on vacation. I was gone a week. I just got home today and tried both beers and they tasted pretty bitter. Could it be the gas? I purged both kegs.. Any ideas?

Bitter and stale, but it was just tapped a week and a half ago.

Warm beer that was hanging out in the lines? Did you try another pint or two?

Over carbed? This can bring out more bitterness in a beer.

that was my thought too...its not the keg'd beer, but the beer sitting in the tap lines for a week that got a lil funky.

I agree with Liquidicem - overcarbed beer. It sat there for a week and overcarbed... now you have carbonic bite. I've had it mine before.
