I opened a bottle of my oatmeal stout last night and when I poured it, the entire glass was foam.. no beer at all ( well maybe 1/16th of an inch in the bottom) I let it settle and tasted it. I knew it was an infection by the foam but wanted to get an idea from you guys what it may have been. It tasted very sharp and medicinal. I think I have heard the term astringent and that seems to describe it. I opened another and it was fine.
